‘My mother borrowed money from others’: Rinku Singh shares his emotional journey after India debut against Ireland
India’s young batting sensation Rinku Singh was handed his maiden debut cap on Friday, August 19. The India debut for Rinku came against Ireland during the first T20I of the three-match series at The Village. However, the Uttar Pradesh cricketer didn’t get the chance to show his batting prowess as the match was halted due to the rain, and India were eventually declared the winner through Duckworth-Lewis Method (DLS).
Following the match, Rinku reflected on his arduous journey and the struggle his family faced to see him represent India. It is worth mentioning that Rinku comes from a very humble family background and earned himself a maiden call-up to the Indian team through his sheer hard work and determination. The Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) batter had a brilliant outing in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, amassing impressive 474 runs in 14 matches.
