The former Indian opener pointed out that KKR’s middle-order batsmen are at par with respected top-order players like Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill. He said, “He has scored more than 400 runs. The number at which he bats, 400 runs are not scored at that number. Virat Kohli has scored 438 and Shubman Gill has scored 475 and he (Rinku Singh) has scored close to 410. Please tell that Rinku Singh has scored 407 runs in 13 matches in IPL 2023 at an average of 50.88 and a strike rate of 143.31.

He further said, “We forget them because we take the top-order batsmen so much. Although he has 20 overs and he has only 15 balls at times. There are only a few occasions when there are 35 balls, or they come in at 30/3. Like he came yesterday. He has been absolutely a star.”
Former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel has also praised Rinku Singh on Geo Cinema. He said, “Rinku Singh has once again shown his range. He came to bat in the power play against Chennai Super Kings. The way he played against Ravindra Jadeja, there was a lot of maturity in his shot selection. He is showing different dimensions of his batting. As we saw earlier he was playing in the lower order, but today he came and batted in the powerplay and played till few runs were left. Usually, we have seen him not out till the end and the most important sign of a good batsman is to win matches for his team. However, unfortunately he got run out. But he had brought the match to a position from where KKR could not lose.
