Rinku Singh Rumored for T20 World Cup Squad After Dharamsala Visit

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has yet to announce its squad for the T20 World Cup 2024, but rumors of Rinku Singh's inclusion have been circulating on social media. These speculations stem from the young batter's recent trip to Dharamsala, where India's Test team is preparing for the fifth and final Test against England.

While Rinku has not officially joined the Test squad, sources suggest he was summoned for a pre-T20 World Cup photoshoot with the team. This timing coincides with the conclusion of India's Test assignments before the World Cup, making it an ideal opportunity for the BCCI to capture images of potential players.

Rinku's impressive performances have also fueled the rumors. In T20Is, he boasts an exceptional average of 89, despite playing as a finisher. He has amassed 356 runs at a strike rate of 176.24, including two half-centuries.

During his visit to Dharamsala, Rinku was photographed with England head coach Brendon McCullum, his former coach at the Kolkata Knight Riders. This reunion further fueled speculation about Rinku's potential inclusion in the World Cup squad.

The BCCI selection committee is expected to finalize the roster midway through the Indian Premier League (IPL), which begins after the England series. This timing allows the selectors to assess players' form and fitness before making their final decisions.

Rinku's inclusion in the World Cup squad would be a testament to his remarkable rise in Indian cricket. His ability to perform under pressure and his impressive batting average make him a strong contender for a place in the team.
