Exactly a month ago, Team India was announced for the T20 World Cup 2024. If there was one name that surprised, disappointed, and angered the fans and experts the most, it was - Rinku Singh. Rinku, who made a name for himself through the IPL in the last year and then performed well in Team India, did not get a place in the squad of 15 players. However, Rinku has been included in the reserve players and he is in New York with Team India. Now such news has come from here about Rinku, which will make the fans angry again.

After winning the IPL 2024 title with KKR, Rinku Singh also reached New York, where he joined the rest of Team India. IPL 2024 did not prove to be very good for Rinku. He did not get many opportunities and even if he got them, he did not get much success. Despite this, Rinku was expected to be selected but it did not happen. He could get a place only as a reserve.

Rinku is doing wonders in New York

Despite this, Rinku is practicing with Team India in New York with full readiness and passion and the reports coming from there are telling that the decision of BCCI's selection committee and team management regarding Rinku may not prove to be correct. Two independent journalists covering Team India's practice session in Naso County told in their respective reports how Rinku Singh looked better than many other batsmen in the practice session.

Well-known reporter Vimal Kumar said that Rinku batted for a long time in the nets session on the second day. He told that on one side in the nets, captain Rohit Sharma was batting, while on the other side was Hardik Pandya. In the nets between these two, it was Rinku, who was looking in the best form, and seeing this, the same thought started coming to mind that Rinku should have been in the team.

Another independent journalist Sandipan Banerjee also said something similar in his report. He said that just like the Naso County Stadium, the practice ground also has drop-in pitches and tremendous bounce is being seen in them. He said that among all the players who batted in the nets session on the second day, Rinku looked the strongest, and hit excellent shots on the front foot and back foot by adjusting well with the bounce.

Will I get a chance in the World Cup?

Now hardly anyone will doubt Rinku's ability but from such reports it seems that Rinku should have been in the squad of 15 players. In Rinku's absence, Team India may feel the lack of a good finisher. However, Rinku will remain a part of the team till the World Cup is over. In such a situation, if unfortunately, any batsman is out due to injury, then Rinku can get his place.
