April 9, 2023, the day IPL witnessed one of the best finishes in its history.

With 28 required off the final five balls, the Southpaw smoked five sixes in a row to take his team home out of nowhere. Nearly four months after that historic chase of 205, the Kolkata Knight Riders' player has narrated those epic sixes and credited the special inning to change his life a lot.

Rinku Singh recalled how he got those maximums with all the pressure upon him in the final over.

He has credited the special knock for helping him earn the India call-up for the Asian Games 2023. "After those five sixes life changed a lot. People knew me at the time but I was not that popular after that a lot of people came to know about me," Rinku said. 

Rinku wants to bring the Gold home
