KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Rinku scored 31 runs off just nine deliveries in the second T20I.
  • India beat Australia by 44 runs in Thiruvananthapuram.
  • The hosts have a 2-0 lead in the series with three games left.
Indian batter Rinku Singh has said that he is delighted after playing a blazing knock against Australia in the second T20I in Thiruvananthapuram. The southpaw on Sunday scored 31 runs off just nine deliveries with four boundaries and two sixes at the Greenfield International Stadium. Rinku came out to bat at No. 5 and helped India post a huge score of 235 for the loss of four wickets after they were put in to bat first.
In just four T20I innings, Rinku has scored 128 runs at an average of 128 and a strike rate of almost 217. He said that he attempts to play shots according to the merit of the delivery.
“I bat in this number a lot so I am calm knowing this position. I like to play each ball according to where it lands," Rinku told the host broadcaster after the game.
The batter said that he has prepared himself to play the role of a finisher. Rinku said that VVS Laxman spoke to him about the role.
“Finishing only. I know I'll get 5-6 overs sometimes or maybe 2 overs sometimes. That's exactly how I practice," Rinku added.
A strong base with almost no initial movement permits him to deal with every delivery as it comes, instead of premeditating. Suryakumar Yadav, India's skipper for this series, was full of praise for Rinku. "When he came out to bat in the first game, we needed about 40 runs from 24 balls [55 from 31]. The composure he showed was brilliant. And the same thing today when asked to bat in the last two overs. He providing that finish reminded us of someone," SKY said.
With Hardik Pandya assuming more of an anchor's role, India are searching for their next finisher for the T20 World Cup in June.
India will play Australia in the third T20I in Guwahati on Tuesday.
