What did Dhoni teach Rinku? (PC-KKR, CSK)
New Delhi. Rinku Singh… has become the king of finishers in IPL 2023. This left-handed batsman is small in stature, but probably no one has a huge stature like him as a batsman. When Kolkata Knight Riders were surrounded by difficulties against Chennai Super Kings, Rinku Singh not only handled the team but also won it. The amazing thing is that Rinku tried the formula he got from his idol Mahendra Singh Dhoni against his team.
Please tell that Rinku Singh had met Dhoni on 23 April. That day there was a match between Chennai and KKR in Kolkata. Chennai had won and after the match Rinku Singh went to meet Dhoni. There he took tips from Dhoni to play in difficult situations. Rinku talked to Dhoni on how the mindset should be while chasing and now in the Chepauk match, Rinku won the team by hitting a half-century against his own team.
Dhoni ended up causing loss to his own team!
Dhoni might not have thought that the knowledge he is giving to Rinku Singh can be used by this player only against his team. Dhoni unknowingly caused loss to his own team. Rinku wrote the script of the defeat of Chennai Superkings exactly in the style of Dhoni. Kolkata Knight Riders lost three wickets for 33 runs in the powerplay. Gurbaj, Roy and Venkatesh Iyer had returned to the pavilion, but after this, captain Nitish Rana and Nitish Rana sealed Chennai’s defeat by sharing an amazing 99-run partnership.

Chennai spinners fail in front of Rinku-Rana
Rinku Singh played 13 balls for the first 15 runs. The pitch was difficult and Rinku took his time. The target was not much so he took his time. Rinku Singh decided to take the match to the end just like Dhoni. Captain Nitish Rana also played in the same style as Rinku. Rinku completed his half-century in 39 balls and Rana also completed his fifty in 38 balls. CSK’s spinners did not get wickets for their team and in this way KKR defeated Chennai in their own house.
