Rinku Singh averages around 50 in Ranji trophy: Ashish Nehra on India star’s ODI call-up for South Africa tour


Ashish Nehra commented on Rinku Singh’s call-up to the ODI series during the South Africa tour and feels that the selectors might have seen something in the southpaw to put confidence in him .

Rinku emerged as a vital player for India in the T20I series against Australia, showcasing his finishing skills and aggressive batting style. He played a significant role in India’s series victory, notably scoring a swift 46 off 29 balls in the fourth match, contributing to a 20-run win that clinched the series.

His performances, including unbeaten knocks of 22 and 31 in earlier games, have been marked by composure and big-hitting, earning him praise for his ability to close out matches.

Rinku’s consistent display of talent in the series has been rewarded with a maiden call-up to the Indian ODI squad for the upcoming tour of South Africa, indicating the selectors’ confidence in his abilities to contribute at the highest level.

Speaking to JioCinema, Nehra pointed out that Rinku has a good average in the Ranji Trophy. The former pacer said that the youngster was asked to come in early during the 4th T20I and performed his role well.

Nehra also said that it was a big plus that Rinku got selected for the ODI series against South Africa.

“People know Rinku Singh because of T20 but don’t forget he averages around 50 in Ranji Trophy too,” Nehra said on JioCinema. “He’s been called up to for the one-day squad too. Selectors must’ve seen something. He came in to bat early today. We have seen him bat in the death overs a lot of times but the way he played today deserves appreciation. He batted the way team needed him. At one point, it looked they could make 190 but if India would’ve lost Rinku at that stage, scoring 160 would have become a challenge too.”

“It’s a big plus for India that they have selected him in 50-over format and today, he got a chance to bat early and he showed that (he can bat long),” said Nehra.
