Rinku Singh flops in first IPL outing after T20 World Cup snub in MI vs KKR tie, leaves Gautam Gambhir disgruntled

Rinku Singh, the promising Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batter, faced a tough challenge in his first IPL outing after being snubbed from India’s T20 World Cup squad. Here’s what unfolded:

The Match:

  • IPL 2024 Match: Mumbai Indians (MI) vs. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
  • Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
  • Result: Rinku Singh scored only nine runs in eight balls.



T20 World Cup Snub:

  • Rinku Singh was groomed by the team management since the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) for the finisher’s role.
  • However, India opted for an extra spinner in the T20 World Cup, leaving Rinku out of the squad.
  • Chief selector Ajit Agarkar revealed that excluding Rinku was the toughest decision due to the need for the right bowling combination.



The Dismissal:

  • Rinku started promisingly, smashing Hardik Pandya for two boundaries.
  • Unfortunately, he fell victim to Piyush Chawla’s wrong’un, chipping the ball back to the bowler.
  • KKR mentor Gautam Gambhir was visibly disgruntled in the dugout.

The Way Forward:

  • Rinku Singh remains on the T20 World Cup reserve list alongside Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan, and Khaleel Ahmed.
  • His exclusion wasn’t due to any fault of his own; it was about finding the right balance in the team.
