Rinku Singh was acquired by KKR in 2018 for INR 80 lakh. Even though the first season didn’t turn out to be great, his potential was considered and he was retained for IPL 2019 as well. Rinku has worked on his batting with KKR Assistant Coach Abhishek Nayar at the KKR Academy during the off season and the results were pretty visible in his 2018-19 Ranji Trophy outing for Uttar Pradesh, where he ended up being the third highest run getter (953 runs in 10 innings) of the tournament with four hundreds (163*, 149, 149 and 150) in his kitty. He does not have the best of numbers in the IPL but he would be looking to make the most of the opportunities he gets this year.
