Rinku Singh has opened everyone's eyes, put them under pressure
Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], December 3 (ANI): Ahead of the fifth and final T20I among India and Australia, former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra said that while there is no question that the rising left-handed batter Rinku Singh has established himself as a competitor for a spot in ICC T20 World Cup 2024 squad, he is still going to battle many challengers though he has put everyone under pressure.
The fifth and final T20I among India and Australia will take place on Sunday. India has won this series 3-1 under the captaincy of number one ranked T20I batter Suryakumar Yadav and the 'finisher' Rinku has been one of the biggest positives for India in the series.
On JioCinema's India vs Australia - fifth T20I review show, master Ashish Nehra spoke of Rinku Singh's chances of breaking into the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup and the reasons why India's pace bowlers have offered so many runs. Excerpts:
In nine T20Is so far in five innings, Rinku Singh has scored 174 runs at an average of 87.00 and a strike rate of over 197, with the best score of 46. He has been impressive with his hitting, smashing 16 fours and 11 sixes across 88 balls faced so far. He has scored 130 runs through fours and sixes itself.
Coming to the bowling side of things, Ashish Nehra said that during the series so far, bowlers from the two sides have leaked a lot of runs. In this situation, pacer Mukesh Kumar has been a major positive for India with his pin-point yorkers, especially in death overs.
"The conditions for the first three matches were different and a lot of the bowlers have changed. Your accomplished bowlers like Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj have been rested. If you speak of Avesh Khan and Mukesh Kumar, they have just been introduced to international cricket," said Ashish Nehra.
"And then we saw over 200 runs being scored in the first three matches. So, it isn't so much that that main the Indian bowlers leaked runs, even Australia's bowlers have offered a lot of runs. In these circumstances, Mukesh Kumar has been a major positive for India. The way he has bowled with wet balls, his execution of yorkers and bowling in the death overs has been terrific," he finished up. (ANI)
