Rinku Singh makes ODI debut after brilliant run in T20Is | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Having made his presence felt in T20Is, rising star Rinku Singh made his ODI debut during the second game of the three-match series against South Africa at St George’s Park in Gqeberha on Tuesday.
The left-handed Rinku was handed his maiden ODI cap by Kuldeep Yadav. He replaced Shreyas Iyerwho has been released from the squad to prepare for the Test series.
There was a toss up between Rajat Patidar and Rinku but the recent performances in the shortest format of the game seemed to have worked in favour of Rinku. Also he has brilliant List A record averages near 50.

The diminutive left-hander has shown that he has the technique and temperament to succeed on South African tracks that offer way more bounce compared to the subcontinent pitches.
Talking about the toss, South Africa skipper Aiden Markram won the coin toss and elected to bowl against India.
South Africa made a couple of changes, replacing Andile Phehlukwayo and Tabraiz Shamsi with Beuran Hendricks and Lizaad Williams.
India are leading the three-match series 1-0 after their comprehensive win in the first ODI at Johannesburg.
