Rinku Singh hitting five consecutive sixes in the IPL 2023

Rinku Singh, the name itself will be remembered in IPL for many years to come. Rinku Singh smashed 5 consecutive sixes in the last over to seal the deal for KKR in the IPL 2023. Gujarat Titans were cruising to victory after Rashid Khan took a hattrick, the game did not look to be in KKRs court after the Russell dismissal.

Rinku Singh also did not time the ball well till the 19th over. Rinku Singh is a part of the KKR family for quite some time now. KKR backed the 25-year-old. Rinku Singh smashed 48 runs off just 21 balls and scripted one of the best finishes ever in IPL.

One cannot forget the single of Umesh Yadav on the very first ball, which allowed Rinku Singh to come back on strike. An over to forget for the young pacer, Yash Dayal. Gujarat Titans were handed the first loss of the season.

Rinku Singh on his spectacular finish

“There was a bit of a doubt in my mind because I had not been playing well and I wasn’t connecting the ball well. I hit a four and a six in the penultimate over, which gave me a bit of confidence. The last five balls that I hit for sixes, I wasn’t thinking anything in particular and was just playing the ball according to where it would be pitched,” said Rinku.
