In 2023, Rinku Singh’s remarkable rise in his professional career has captured attention. His stellar performances in the IPL paved the way for his selection in the Indian squad, and he marked his debut in Ireland with an impressive T20I innings, smashing 38 runs off 21 balls. Adding to his accolades, Rinku clinched a Gold Medal at the Asian Games in China.

However, the latest highlight unfolded during the Visakhapatnam T20I against Australia. With one run needed off the last ball, Rinku Singh delivered a stunning six against Australia’s Sean Abbott, seemingly securing the win. The excitement was tempered as the six wasn’t officially counted due to a no-ball called since Abbott had overstepped. Despite this, the six showcased Rinku’s composure in high-pressure situations, solidifying his reputation as a dependable finisher.

Unaware of the no-ball situation, Rinku Singh’s six, although not reflected on the scoreboard, added to his growing legacy. His ability to maintain calm during tense run-chases was further highlighted, especially considering his earlier feat of hitting 5 sixes in 5 balls against Yash Dayal in the IPL. Achieving this on the international stage, with the Visakhapatnam crowd rallying behind him and against the formidable opponent Australia, truly showcased Rinku Singh’s skills to the world.

In the match, Rinku Singh scored an unbeaten 22 off 14 balls, including 4 fours. However, the game shouldn’t have come down to needing one run off one ball, as India required only 15 runs in 14 balls before Suryakumar Yadav’s dismissal. Acting as the interim captain for the series, Suryakumar set up India’s chase of 209 runs with a scintillating knock of 80 runs off 42 balls, featuring 9 fours and 4 sixes. Ishan Kishan played a supporting role, contributing 58 runs off 39 balls.

The internet buzzed with memes and funny tweets in response to Rinku Singh’s stellar performance, making him the standout star of the IND vs AUS match.
