In Match 31, the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) provided another thrilling high-scoring thriller as Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, to record the joint-highest successful run chase in the tournament’s history.

After 16.1 overs, the southpaw was called in to bat with KKR at 184/4 in an attempt to provide a flawless end to their innings. Rinku wasted little time in taking up the bowling, starting on the third ball itself. In the 19th over of the innings, he produced a crafty stroke against Avesh Khan.

With a crowded leg-side field, Khan ran in to bowl the second ball of the over and struck a solid length delivery that was aimed towards the stumps. But Rinku was smart enough to shift to his right and clear space for himself. He then unleashed a full force delivery over deep extra cover, sending the ball hurtling into the advertising hoardings for a six. Rinku showed the world how good he was at reading the game and making shots with his incredible stroke.
