Virender Sehwag on Rinku Singh: Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Rinku Singh has been in constant headlines ever since he hit five sixes. In the match played against Gujarat Titans, Rinku Singh won his team by hitting five consecutive sixes in the last over. He won everyone’s heart with his brilliant innings. Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag was also impressed by this innings of Rinku Singh. After this innings, he compared Rinku Singh with former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and legendary Sachin Tendulkar. But Sehwag also said a very bitter thing.
Comparison with Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni
Virender Sehwag while talking in a show of Cricbuzz compared Rinku Singh to Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Sehwag said, “There is a belief in the Kolkata Knight Riders team that Rinku Singh is still there. Even when Mahendra Singh Dhoni started finishing the match, there was a belief that Dhoni is still there. Sachin Tendulkar had this belief in the 90s. If Tendulkar is there then he can win the match, if he is not there then he cannot win. This thing is now with KKR and Rinku Singh. Earlier, Andre Russell used to do this work.
Bitter talk for Rinku Singh
Sehwag further said, “This has never happened in the history of cricket and Rinku Singh will never be able to do it again. The record may be broken, but Rinku Singh will never be able to hit 6 sixes in his life and will not be able to break the record.
The former Indian batsman further said, “Luck is also needed. Had Alzira Joseph been bowling, Rinku would have known that he would never be able to hit Alzari, but he has faced Yash Dayal all his life in the nets.”
