GT vs KKR: Shreyas Iyer reveals having ‘goosebumps’ after watching Rinku Singh’s innings

Following his five sixes in the final over against Gujarat Titans, Rinku Singh has become the talk of the town. Notably, KKR needed 28 runs in five balls to win the match. Commentator Nick Knight already announced it to be an impossible task. However, the Aligarh-born cricketer made the impossible possible, smacking five sixes in different parts of the ground to help the Knight Riders register a memorable win at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Meanwhile, after his heroics, Shreyas Iyer had a special video call with Rinku. He expressed his joy seeing the southpaw bat. The 25-year-old in the conversation stated that it was God’s plan while skipper Nitish Rana revealed that Rinku was desperate to finish the game this time around, especially after failing to do something similar against Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022.

“Rinku Bhaiya Zindabbad, Rinku Bhaiya Zindabaad! Class man, class. Such calm and composure yaar, class yaar class. Well played Nitish. I had goosebumps,” Iyer stated as Kolkata Knight Riders shared the video on their social media handles.
