In a departure from the Player of the Series, Ashish Nehra highlights Rinku Singh as the standout performer for India in the Australia T20I series. Nehra commends Singh’s adaptability and crucial knocks, emphasizing his ability to play a different role in challenging situations.
India skipper Suryakumar Yadav praises spinner Ravi Bishnoi for his exceptional performance in the recently concluded five-match T20I series against Australia. Despite Bishnoi being named the Player of the Series, Nehra opts to recognize Rinku Singh’s contributions to the team.
In the final T20I, batsmen Shreyas Iyer and Axar Patel’s performances, coupled with a nerveless defense by Arshdeep Singh in the last over, secured India’s thrilling six-run win over Australia. The inexperienced bowling unit showcased resilience to defend the 161-run target at Bengaluru.
Former pacer Ashish Nehra singles out Rinku Singh for his standout performances, especially in the fourth T20I. Nehra appreciates Singh’s adaptability, noting that he played a different role than usual, showcasing his ability to hold the innings together when wickets were falling from the other end.
Nehra explains, “Rinku Singh is generally known for achieving the target when the team needs 50-60 runs after the 15th or 16th over. Here he had to play a different role, and he showed that by doing it.”
While Singh had a quiet outing in the final T20I, he emerged as the top performer for India in the series decider at Raipur. His explosive knock of 46 off 29 balls contributed significantly to India’s 20-run win over Australia in the fourth T20I. With an average of 52.50, Singh amassed 105 runs in four innings during the series.
Nehra acknowledges Singh’s contribution, stating, “Wickets kept falling from the other end, but he still held one end up and played strokes when it was required.”
As Rinku Singh earns praise for his adaptability and crucial knocks, the cricketing community awaits his future performances in different roles for the Indian team.
