Rinku stayed not out on 22 runs off 14 balls with four fours as India chased down a target of 209 with one ball left in their innings.

Nayar praised the left-handed Rinku for showing a lot of character time and again in his short career for India. The veteran said that the southpaw has shown maturity of a player, who has played international cricket for a long time.

“It takes a lot of character. We speak about someone, who has done it in the IPL and domestic cricket. Just to see Rinku hold his nerve and to have the have the composure shows that he has grown leaps and bounds,” Nayar was quoted as saying on Jio Cinemas.

“It’s the third time he has done this for India, the third time India needed him to do something special and he turned up. He hasn’t played international cricket for 5-7 years, but has the maturity and skillet of someone who has played that long,” he stated.

Nayar also did not hesitate in saying that India have found a new finisher in Rinku after the likes of MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya did the job for the Men in Blue.

“It tells you that he has mastered the art of finishing an innings. It’s not easy and it’s been a while that Hardik and MS Dhoni did that for us, but post that, there’s no one, who has played the finisher’s role so well. It’s not just the runs he gets, but the way he gets them. There is a certain calm and composure about the way he’s playing his cricket,” Nayar added.

With the win, India took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series and will now play the second match on Sunday, November 26 at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.
