The long-awaited national call-up finally came for Rinku Singh when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced India’s squad for Asian Games. The UP cricketer was among the fifteen players who have been selected to represent India in the men’s category at the Asian Games. While Rinku was upset about not getting a call-up for the West Indies series, the 25-year-old is more than happy to get a chance.

In fact, Singh said that although he is a tough guy, there will be tears when he dons the India jersey. While talking to Revzsport, Rinku revealed how proud his parents are about him getting a place in the national squad and also declared that the day he will wear India’s Blues will be dedicated to his parents. 

“I know for the fact that my family, my parents will be happier than me to see me wear the Indian jersey. They have been waiting for this for years now. They have seen my struggle, they have helped me, been with me through all my ups and downs. The day I don the jersey will be a day dedicated to them,” said Singh (via Revzsport).

“I am a strong guy but a bit emotional as well. I am pretty sure there will be some tears when I wear the India jersey for the first time. It has been a long and a tough journey.”

The UP cricketer who himself faced so many hardships in his quest to become a professional player, Rinku Singh does not want aspiring players to face the same problems. When asked about his 15 lakh donation to build a hostel for budding cricketers from the state, Singh said that he does not want to talk a lot about it. However, Singh said that he just wants to do as much as possible.

“I don’t want to speak a lot about it. But I feel no one should have the financial burden when chasing their dreams of becoming a cricketer,” said Rinku.

“There are many parents who are reluctant because of their financial situations, and that’s why I took a step forward and did whatever I could to help those kids out. I know where I come from, so I try to do my bit to help the community out. ‘Ek na ek din toh upar jana hi hai sabko, paisa lekar kaha jaunga main.”
