In the second T20 (Ire vs Ind 2nd T20) played against Ireland on Sunday, India defeated the hosts by 33 runs to take an unbeatable 2-run lead in the series. Ruturaj Gaikwad scored a half-century in India's victory, but Rinku Singh made everyone crazy. By scoring 21 off just 3 balls with three sixes and two fours, Rinku told very well in the first innings of his international career that he is going to play white-ball for India for a long time. Rinku initially scored 2 off 38 balls and then later showed in atishi style that he knows how to play according to the need.
After a great debut for KKR in the IPL this year and now for Team India, fans are now openly saying that they have found the finisher they were looking for. And Rinku is being compared with MS Dhoni. Let's say when the comparison is happening, we bring you three records in Dhoni's T20, on which Rinku can turn the water.
VIDEO: 4, 6, 6, 1, 6... Rinku Singh released "firecrackers", made the score a rocket in the first international innings
1. Most not-out,
Dhoni has been unquestionably called the chase master of the white-ball. Many times he led the team to victory. In this effort, the former captain has returned not out many times after winning. When it comes to IPL, Dhoni has been not out 250 times in 65 matches. At the same time, in international cricket, he has been not out 98 times in 42 matches. At the same time, Rinku missed out on being not out in the first international innings. But Rinku showed that if he is consistent in his performance, he can make a record of being not out.
2. Most sixes in the 20th over of the innings
Dhoni's batting style has been such that he has batted till the end of the innings. Dhoni has never been a player who breaks down on bowlers with the first ball. Dhoni's emphasis was on taking the match to the end and then hitting big shots in the slog overs. This has been the reason that in the T20 career, he has hit 20 sixes in the last 74th over of the innings. At the same time, Rinku Singh showed not only in the IPL, but also in the international match against Ireland that he likes to hit sixes in the last moments. His sixes after the 18th over were worth watching. And this shows that he can also break this record of Dhoni.
3. Most runs in the 20th over of the innings
When Dhoni's style has been to play and hit till the last over, it is obvious that runs come out of his bat in the last over. Due to tremendous hitting, great race between wickets, Dhoni has scored good runs in the last over. Dhoni has scored 20 runs in the last over of 146 innings of T1006 career. He is the second batsman after Pollard to do so. Although it is too early to compare with Rinku Singh, the leftist has scored 13 runs in the 20th over of 94 innings. His stra.rate is 208.88. At the same time, Dhoni's strike-rate is 223.05.
