KKR benefited

Actually, an exciting match was played between Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants. Where the KKR team had to face loss by one run. In this match it also seemed that KKR would win, but it could not be. The team’s star player, Rinku Singh, remained in the crease until the end. He too played a brilliant tackle in this match but was unable to win the match for the team. Rinku played a lot of brilliant innings this year. In this match he also scored 67 runs on 33 balls with 6 fours and 4 sixes.

Rinku proved to be the X factor for the KKR team this year. It is a pleasure for KKR to have a player like Rinku Singh. The KKR team would also like to keep him on their team next year. It is good news for KKR that their team has found a player who can play for their team for a long time. In this year’s IPL, Rinku Singh was the only player who scored runs for the KKR team on a continuous basis. He has scored 474 runs in 14 matches this season at an average of 59.25 and a strike rate of 149.53.

It can be included in the auction.

Rinku Singh, who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders, may be listed in next year’s auction. KKR listed him in their squad in the year 2018 for Rs 80 lakh. He was held by the KKR team until the year 2021. But he was released before the mega auction to be held in 2022. KKR again included in his squad in the mega auction but this time for just Rs 55 lakhs. So he is playing IPL with this fee. It is believed that next year he can participate in the auction, where other teams can claim millions of rupees from him.
