The excitement for the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 is at its peak as teams gear up for the cricketing extravaganza set to commence on March 22. Amidst the anticipation, a recent practice game between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has caught the attention of fans, particularly due to a spectacular display of batting prowess by Rinku Singh against star bowler Mitchell Starc.

IPL 2024 set to kick off

The IPL 2024 is scheduled to begin with an electrifying clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the iconic M Chidambaram Stadium on March 22. Following the opener, a doubleheader awaits fans on the subsequent day, featuring Punjab Kings (PBKS) against Delhi Capitals (DC) in the afternoon, and KKR facing Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the evening fixture.

Mitchell Starc’s highly anticipated return

The return of Australian pace sensation, Starc, to the IPL after a decade has generated significant buzz among cricket enthusiasts. Starc, who previously represented RCB in 2014 and 2015, joins KKR this season after the franchise broke all-time auction records to secure his services for ₹24.75 crores. The move aims to strengthen KKR’s pace attack, which had shown signs of vulnerability in previous seasons.

Rinku Singh’s explosive batting display

In a recent practice match between Team Purple and Team Gold, Starc faced the fury of KKR’s Rinku Singh during the death overs. Despite his reputation as one of the world’s premier fast bowlers, Starc found himself under pressure as Rinku unleashed a barrage of powerful strokes. One such stroke, a massive six over midwicket, exemplified Rinku’s aggressive intent and left spectators in awe.
