In an interview with timesofindia.com, Rinku said, “Yes. I am ready. I don’t think much about the future. If I get the chance, I will surely grab it and do well. Be it any format or anywhere in the world, if I get the chance I will give my hundred percent. It will be a big big thing for me. I am the only male cricketer from Aligarh to play in IPL and India as well. This is a huge thing for me. Every cricketer’s dream is to play for India and represent the country in the World Cup. I am also living this dream. I don’t know how I will react when I see my name in the World Cup squad. But I will wait for that day. I am really working hard towards that goal.”

“I have been playing since 2013. I have played a number of matches. I love to play in different conditions and situations. Honestly, I love challenges. If someone says it is difficult or impossible, I love to do those things. The best part is that I believe in myself. I generally bat down the order and these kinds of crunch situations arise automatically. So, I am familiar with these situations now,” Rinku Singh concluded.
