Rinku Singh showcased an explosive performance against Australia in the second T20I, scoring an unbeaten 31 off just 9 balls, including 4 fours and 2 sixes. Captain Suryakumar Yadav praised Singh, labeling him the team’s new finisher and drawing parallels with the calm demeanor of MS Dhoni.
In the post-match interview with Murali Karthik, Yadav highlighted Singh’s composure in high-pressure situations. Referring to Singh’s impactful innings, which elevated the team’s total to 235/4 in 20 overs, Yadav likened Rinku Singh’s finishing style to a well-known former Indian player.
When pressed by Karthik about the identity of this player, Yadav responded, “Everyone knows about that person. He did the same job for India for so many years.” The reference was to the former Indian player who currently leads the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, MS Dhoni.
Additionally, batting first, Indian trio of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ishan Kishan contributed fifties to India’s innings, effectively countering the Australian bowlers. India put 235 runs on the board. Ravi Bishnoi and Prasidh Krishna played pivotal roles with the ball, claiming three wickets each and preventing Australia from gaining momentum as the Aussies could only score 191 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in 20 overs.
