Rinku Singh: Yuvraj Singh's Chosen Successor for Team India's Middle-Order Brilliance

Live TV News


In the realm of Indian cricket, Yuvraj Singh recently acknowledged that identifying a successor to fill his shoes in Team India is no easy task. Since Yuvi's departure, Team India has been grappling with the absence of a middle-order batsman capable of not only steering the innings but also sealing the deal. Yuvraj's multifaceted contributions, particularly his bowling process, added a unique flavor to the team's dynamics. Despite various contenders showcasing their talents in the middle order post-Yuvi era, none have managed to secure a permanent spot. However, Yuvraj Singh has now unveiled the name of the player he believes can seamlessly step into his role within the current Indian squad, and that player is none other than Rinku Singh.

Rinku Singh has been turning heads with his stellar performances, particularly gaining momentum since the IPL 2023. His recent exploits in T20Is for India have been nothing short of remarkable, showcasing an adept ability to both build an innings and finish matches with finesse. Not only does he excel with the bat, but Rinku also displays remarkable skills in the field.

During the inauguration of his Center of Excellence, Yuvraj Singh was questioned about the void he left in scoring brisk runs during the middle overs. To this, Yuvraj pointed towards Rinku Singh, who has embraced this responsibility admirably. When asked if Rinku is the rightful successor, Yuvraj expressed, "If anyone can take my place, it will be only Rinku Singh. He doesn't require any refinement. He possesses all the essentials for limited-overs cricket. He can accelerate the run rate during the middle overs and, if required, extend the innings. In my opinion, he should be a part of all three formats, not confined to just T20 cricket."

Yuvraj Singh continued his praise, declaring Rinku Singh as perhaps the best left-handed player in the current Indian team. Drawing parallels to his own playing style, Yuvraj highlighted Rinku's knack for knowing when to attack, rotate the strike, and stay composed under pressure. Yuvraj expressed confidence in Rinku's ability to be a match-winner, acknowledging his potential to replicate the finishing role he himself played at No. 5 or 6. While Yuvraj refrained from putting undue pressure on the young talent, he firmly believed in Rinku's capability to carry on the legacy of a finisher.
