The match between KKR and PBKS ended in the latter’s win in a last-over thriller, and it was their star duo of Andre Russell and Rinku Singh who took KKR home, with the latter hitting the winning run on the last ball of the match.
Former India cricketer Mohammed Kaif hailed Rinku Singh for continuously growing his stature.
Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Live, Kaif said, “Credit to Rinku for asking a player like Russell to rotate strike on the fifth ball of the delivery. An uncapped Indian player like Rinku Singh asking a finisher like Russell to come to the non-striker’s end shows the player’s confidence in his game. This for me, is a story of IPL.”
Former India cricketer Harbhajan Singh meanwhile claimed Russell finding his form back is good news for KKR.
Speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Live, Harbhajan said, “The win against PBKS will give a lot of confidence to KKR. Their star players Andre Russell and Rinku Singh finished the game for them. Russell regaining his form is big news for them.”
