Rinku Singh, the KKR batter, smashed five sixes in the last over in yesterday’s match between KKR vs GT and handed over a sensational victory to the team. The chase is arguably one of the greatest chases in the history of IPL. When KKR needed 29 from the last over, which seemed next to impossible, Rinku Singh blasted five sixes which no one expected.
For those who didn’t know the humble background of Rinku Singh, one must read his story. It is truly one of the inspirational stories. Rinku Singh hails from a modest background in Uttar Pradesh. Not many know that Rinku Singh’s father used to deliver LPG cylinders while his brother drives an autorickshaw.
Rinku Singh could have been a sweeper but the cricketer believed that is not his destiny and wanted to play cricket. In an interview, Rinku said that “I had no other option but to succeed in cricket. My family is a bit big and I had to be a successful cricketer.”
His heroics in the match against Gujarat Titans will surely be remembered forever.
