After a maiden India Call-up for the Asian Games, KKR Star Rinku Singh Breaks silence

For the Hangzhou Asian Games scheduled to start on September 23, Middle-order batter Rinku Singh has earned a much-awaited Team India call-up. Previously, the exclusion of Rinku from India’s T20I squad for the series against the West Indies had baffled many, but the talented Kolkata Knight Riders batter has now found a spot in the national team.

The 25-year-old batter was expected to be named in India’s squad for the West Indies tour, but ultimately the selectors decided otherwise, handing Rinku his maiden call-up for the second-string Indian team that will take part in the Asian Games.

While the senior Indian team will be occupied with the preparation of the ICC ODI World Cup, the second-string young unit led by Ruturaj Gaikwad will be aiming for gold at the Asian Games.

After his maiden Team India selection, Rinku shared a picture posted by the Kolkata Knight Riders franchise on Instagram to express his feelings. In the photo, Rinku can be seen in the Team India jersey. The southpaw reacted to the wholehearted Instagram post with a ‘Nazar Amulet’ emoji.
