After the Test and ODI series against West Indies, India will also play a five-match T20I series in this tour. The BCCI announced the Indian squad on Wednesday (July 5) for the series, which starts on August 3. This team will be led by Hardik Pandya and some important changes have been seen in the team. However, Rinku Singh was overlooked for selection in the Indian team. However, there is speculation as to why he was denied the opportunity.
Fans as well as many former cricketers were seen demanding that Rinku, who became the biggest story of IPL 2023, get a chance in the Indian team. Batting at number six and seven, he single-handedly won matches for Kolkata Knight Riders. He achieved the feat of scoring more than 20 runs in an over thrice in a single season.
While this was the case, there was a strong possibility that he would get a chance. However, ignoring him, Tilak Verma was given a chance. Rinku is currently enrolled in the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore. Some sources are saying that his fitness is an issue. So, although he has not got a chance now, it has been said that he will definitely be a part of the Indian team in the next series.
He had the best performance of the season for Kolkata Knight Riders this year. In 14 matches he scored 474 runs at an average of over 59. Meanwhile, his strike rate also remained tremendous at 149. During this, as many as 29 sixes came from his bat. In the last match against Gujarat, he hit 5 sixes in a row to give the team a historic win.
