ICC pays tribute to Rinku after KKR defeat Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag
The Indian cricketing fraternity paid tribute to Kolkata Knight Riders' Rinku Singh, who achieved a stunning feat by smacking five consecutive sixes in the last over to edge out defending champions Gujarat Titans on their home turf at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Sunday. Making an incredible comeback, Singh pulled off one of the greatest heists in the T20 format as his extraordinary knock sealed a thrilling three-wicket win for KKR. As legend Sachin Tendulkar aptly put it, this extraordinary match taught fans "It is not over till it is over."
A match that went to the wire & continued to shift momentum. One felt Rashid's hat trick was a game-changer, but Rinku's power-hitting was something special. Enjoyed the last few moments. We have learned from this amazing game that it isn't over until it is. #GTvKKR," Tendulkar tweeted.
KKR's regular skipper Shreyas Iyer, who is currently out of IPL 2023 due to a back injury, also posted a story celebrating the win.
It was an unbelievable match. Rinku bhai never loses!" said Iyer.
Another IPL franchise, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), expressed their awe and inspiration on Twitter.
ICC officials also commended Rinku for his knock, drawing comparisons with the knock of West Indies all-rounder Carlos Braithwaite, who smashed Ben Stokes for four successive sixes in the final over of the ICC T20 World Cup 2016.
The International Cricket Council tweeted, "Rinku Singh Carlos Brathwaite "Remember the name!" #IPL2023 #T20WorldCup."
Indian opener Virender Sehwag also tweeted, "All hail Lord Rinku Singh. 5 sixes in 5 balls in the last over of a run chase. Best last over-hitting I've ever seen. #KKRvGT."
After electing to bat first, Gujarat Titans scored 204/4 in 20 overs. Vijay Shankar hit 63 off 24 balls with four boundaries and five sixes. Sai Sudharshan also scored his second half-century in IPL 2023 with 53 runs in 38 balls with three fours and two sixes. Shubman Gill also contributed 39 runs in 31 balls, with five fours.
Suyash Sharma continued his solid run after a three-four against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the previous match, taking 1/35 in his four overs. Narine took 3/33 in four overs for KKR.
KKR were reduced to 28/2 after chasing 205 runs, but skipper Nitish Rana (45 off 29 balls with four boundaries and three sixes) put on a hundred-run stand with Venkatesh Iyer, who scored 83 off 40 balls.
At 155/7, KKR had been put on the back foot by the dismissal of these two set batters and Rashid's hat-trick. As the equation came down to 29 runs in the final over, Rinku Singh struck five successive sixes to seal what had once seemed an unlikely victory for KKR. Rinku scored 48* in 21 balls, consisting of one four and six sixes.
Alzarri Joseph took two wickets, while Joshua Little and Mohammed Shami each took one wicket for GT. Rashid took 3/37 for GT.
As a result of his incredible cameo, Rinku Singh was awarded the 'Player of the Match award.
With this win, KKR has climbed to third position in the points table, having won two of their three matches and lost one. GT has slipped to fourth position and has a similar win-loss record to KKR, but KKR has a higher net run rate, taking them one position ahead.
