KKR vs RR Match: Left-handed batsman Rinku Singh, who led Kolkata Knight Riders to a seven-wicket victory in an unbeaten 23-ball 42 against Rajasthan Royals, said he had been waiting for such an opportunity for five years. KKR achieved the target of 153 runs for the win at the loss of three wickets in 19.1 overs. Man of the match Rinku said at the award ceremony, ‘Many players from Aligarh have played Ranji Trophy but I am the first player to play IPL. It (IPL) is very different from other domestic tournaments. If there is a big tournament then there is a lot of pressure.

He said, ‘I was waiting for such an opportunity for five years, but I was not getting regular opportunities. Having scored a lot of runs in domestic tournaments, I had the confidence to do well. When asked about the great partnership with Nitish Rana, he said, ‘All we were talking about was to take the match till the end.’ KKR captain Shreyas Iyer, who tasted victory after five consecutive defeats, said that from the start of the match, his players put in a dominating performance.

He said, ‘Our bowlers gave only 36 runs in the power play and even after that they kept the screws tight.’ He said, ‘Rinku Singh is very important for the team. I was telling my teammates that he is playing with patience and not letting the pressure get to him. He has played only two or three matches. She is really awesome.
