The 25-year-old Uttar Pradesh batter Rinku Singh, who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has said that the mindset of the legendary Indian cricketers – MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma – is way above any normal cricketer.

Rinku Singh became the talk of the town after his sensational performances for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. In the season where the Knight Riders struggled to get going, Rinku Singh emerged as the biggest positive and savior for his side.

However, despite averaging over 50 in List-A and First-class cricket and performing remarkably in the IPL season, he was ignored for the West Indies tour. It was a big heartbreak for the batter as many expected him to at least make it to the squad for the T20I series. However, it didn’t take him very long to make it to the India squad as he was called up for the Asian Games 2023.

Meanwhile, he recently spoke about the legendary Indian cricketers MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma in an interaction with RevSportz. The Uttar Pradesh batter was asked whether he feels any difference when he talks to the likes of Dhoni, Kohli and Rohit, and other cricketers.

Rinku Singh said that there is a major difference as the aforementioned Indian greats focus more on the mental aspect of the game and they have completely different and clearer mindsets than others.

“The game is all about the mind. Whenever I get the opportunity to speak with such big players, be it a MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma, I find a similar pattern – they focus on the mental aspect of the game. It’s all about the mindset. 

“The clearer you are about your role, what you want to do out there, the easier it becomes to execute your plans, and that’s what I focus on. Also, the mindset of Mahi bhai, Virat bhai or Rohit bhai is way above and clearer to what a normal cricketer thinks. That’s what makes the difference at the higher level, I think,” Rinku Singh said.

‘The chatter with Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) was really productive. He has also batted in similar numbers as I do – at 5 or 6 – and he has done it for the majority of his career and knows the position in and out. I simply asked him how to better my game, and his advice was very simple: “Bohot sahi batting kar raha hai, jo tu kar raha hai, wahi karta reh (You are batting really well. Continue whatever you have done so far),” he elaborated.
