Rinku Singh, who has been in excellent form for some time, has not got a chance. He has been included in the traveling reserve. The selectors have given preference to another player in his place.

Performance is fading in IPL 2024

Rinku Singh made his debut for the Indian team in T20 International in the year 2023. After this he played many brilliant innings for the Indian team. He emerged as the most reliable finisher for the team in the last one year. The 26-year-old player has scored 356 runs in 15 T20Is for India, with a strike rate of 176.23 and an average of 89. He is an expert in explosive batting and can change the course of the match in just a few balls. But in IPL 2024, Rinku Singh has not been able to perform as per his name. In the current tournament for KKR, he has scored only 123 runs in 9 innings at a strike rate of 150.

Shivam Dubey has got a chance

The selectors have selected Shivam Dubey in place of Rinku Singh for the T20 World Cup 2024. Who has impressed everyone with his game in the current season. This brilliant batsman may not have got a chance to showcase his skills with the ball, but he has scored 350 runs in nine matches in the tournament so far at a strike rate of 172.41. He has also performed well in the opportunities he got in the Indian team in the last one year. On the other hand, Rinku Singh does not bowl and Shivam Dubey can be an excellent option in the absence of vice-captain Hardik Pandya.

Scored so many runs for Team India

Shivam Dubey is in good form and has performed well for Team India for some time now. He has scored 276 runs in 21 T20I matches for the Indian team so far in 2019, which includes three half-centuries. Apart from this, he has also taken 8 wickets in his name.
