Coach Rahul Dravid hails RinkuSingh's'maturity and calmness' following the series-clinching win.

The head coach of team India, Rahul Dravid, has praised Rinku Singh’s maturity and calmness following India’s nail-biting win over Afghanistan at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. India beat Afghanistan in the second Super Over to sweep the three-match T20I series 3-0.
Rinku scored an unbeaten 69 off 39 deliveries, smashing two boundaries and six maximums to guide India to 212 for 4 in 20 overs.
While speaking after the match, Dravid said Rinku showed maturity and calmness, insisting that it was good to see him challenged in a different match situation. Rinku came in to bat with India reeling at 22 for 4. The left-handed batter stitched an unbeaten 190-run stand with captain Rohit Sharma to take India to a fighting total.
Dravid said, “Yeah, he's been terrific. For someone who is just starting off his career in international cricket, which started off in August or September, it's just been a few months. But with the maturity and calmness he's showing, we've always seen him come at the back end of the innings and finish games off, but today was a great test for him to come in at 22 for 4 and just build that partnership and show what he can do at the back end.”
“It's really good for us to see that, and he's very clear. One of the good things about Rinku is that he's very clear about his skills, what he knows, what his strengths are, what he needs to work on, and how he needs to go about it,” Dravid added.
