  2. Background


Domestic career

Rinku Singh made his debut in List A Cricket when he played for Uttar Pradesh Cricket for the first time in March 2014 at the age of 16. He was impressive in his debut as he remained the top scorer in that match with a score of 83 runs. Singh later made his first class debut for the Uttar Pradesh team on 5 November 2016 and strung some useful innings for his state team.

In his first seven List A matches, Rinku had already scored four fifties and everybody knew that he had something special in him. Another notable performance by Rinku Singh in recent times came during Uttar Pradesh's Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018 encounter where he played a sweltering knock of 44-ball 91* against Tripura.

Rinku, who made his name initially as more of a white-ball dasher, had a breakout season in the 2018-19 Ranji Trophy where he piled up 953 runs in ten games at an average of 105.88 with four centuries and three fifties. He was the third highest run-getter overall.

The 22 year-old was suspended for three months last year for participating in a foreign league by the BCCI.

IPL Career

Owning to his impressive domestic performances, Rinku Singh was picked by Kings XI Punjab for 10 Lakhs of rupees in 2017. Although he did not get to play in the tournament, it certainly meant recognition of his talent.

In 2018, he was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for the 10th edition of Indian Premier League for 80 lakhs of rupees. Interestingly enough, he had fetched a price four times his base cap of Rs. 20 lakhs as teams battled to bag the services of the dasher. In the two season that Rinku has been with KKR, he has got limited chances, playing 9 games in total and scoring 66 runs. The 2020 season could be the breakout season for the southpaw


Rinku comes from a very modest background. He is the third of five siblings and recently admitted in an interview that he has seen some tough times in his life. His father delivers LPG cylinders to homes and one of his brother is an auto-rickshaw driver. Coming from humble beginnings, Rinku rose through the ranks and is currently one of the sought-after hitter in the circuit.
