Viral Moment: Rinku Singh’s Big Hit Against Starc in IPL Prep

Australia’s formidable pace bowler, Mitchell Starc, is set to take center stage as the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 kicks off this week. Making a comeback to the cash-rich league after a decade, Starc holds the distinction of being the most expensive cricketer in IPL history.

Last year, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) shattered all previous auction records to secure Starc’s services for a staggering price of Rs 24.75 crore. The move was aimed at bolstering KKR’s pace attack, which had shown signs of vulnerability in recent seasons.

As KKR prepares to commence their campaign against Sunrisers Hyderabad this Saturday, all eyes are on Starc’s performance. In a recent intra-squad practice match at the iconic Eden Gardens, Starc showcased his full range of skills. However, he faced some resistance from batsman Rinku Singh, conceding 20 runs in the final over to finish with figures of 4-0-40-1.

Despite his economic figures, a viral video clip from the practice session has grabbed attention on social media. The footage captures Rinku Singh smashing Starc for a towering six, capitalizing on a rare lapse in Starc’s otherwise formidable bowling. The left-arm pacer’s errant delivery turned into a full toss, allowing Rinku to dispatch it effortlessly over midwicket.

Starc’s return to IPL action promises to add an extra dimension to KKR’s bowling lineup, and his performance will undoubtedly be closely monitored throughout the tournament.
