The jaw-dropping second came about within the conflict between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Gujarat Titans (GT) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday when Rashid Khan, the stand-in skipper of GT, had simply taken a hat-trick to drag issues again into his facet.
The victory was trying far forward for the touring social gathering because the equation was right down to 29 wanted on six balls with solely three wickets in hand. It may’ve been a simple activity for Yash Dayal, who isn’t new to the cash-rich league thrillers. However the left-armer had no clue as to what Rinku was considering.
After Umesh Yadav took a single on the primary ball, Rinku activated his beast mode and slammed back-to-back 5 sixes to seal the deal for the Knight Riders. He stormed straightaway in the direction of the dugout in celebration however was stopped midway by his skipper, who was throughout him because the celebrations started.

KKR is perhaps the first crew to concede 2 hat-tricks on the identical venue. 1st one was taken by Tambe in 2014.

For those who can hit 5 brilliantly executed sixes when your crew wants 29 runs to win from the ultimate over and to prime it up, you make Chandrakant Pandit excited….. you’ve absolutely achieved one thing very very particular.

They will name it “Doing a Rinku”

29 runs chased off the final over with Rinku Singh hitting 5 sixes in a row. Loopy end. IPL insanity.
— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) April 9, 2023
All that emotion on Chandrakant Pandit’s face as he hugged Rinku Singh repeatedly completely complemented Rinku Singh’s lack of emotion whereas he was pulling off one of many IPL’s biggest ever heists. Unimaginable end #IPL2023
