"Permanent Indian Chad face for me now" - Fans on Twitter draw hilarious comparisons between Rinku Singh & popular meme
Rinku Singh's photos from his holiday in the Maldives have drawn some hilarious reactions on Twitter, with fans comparing him with the popular meme "GigaChad".
Originating in 2017, GigaChad is a collection of photo-shopped pictures of a bearded male with a sharp jawline. According to knowyourmeme.com, it is "an internet archetype representing an ultra-masculine, sexually attractive male."
Rinku's slick back hair, jawline and beard in his post, which he captioned "Caution: Addictive content ahead," seemed to resemble the GigaChad face for some fans.
Here is Rinku Singh's post:
And the following are the best reactions:
Rinku Singh was KKR's best player in IPL 2023
Rinku Singh had a breakthrough season for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL 2023, which saw his popularity skyrocket as well. Taking to the finisher's role with aplomb, the left-handed batter played many important cameos for the otherwise-struggling team.
Rinku scored 474 runs at an average of 59.25 and a strike rate of 149.53, which was more than double of what he scored last season. Almost all his knocks came in difficult situations, including his 48 (21) not out against Gujarat Titans (GT) where he hit five sixes off the last five balls to win KKR the match.
Rinku's brilliant season has led to calls for his selection to the national team, which has historically struggled to find players who can finish the innings. But in a recent interview, the Uttar Pradesh batter said he isn't thinking about that now.
“I never thought before that I’ll hit those five sixes and never have I thought about getting selected for the Indian team. I just have a normal routine which I follow every day. Go to the gym, and train harder. Agar kismat mein hoga to India khel jayenge (If it is in my destiny, I will play for India)," Rinku Singh told Sports Hour.
He will likely be back in action when the domestic season resumes in the last week of June.
