Kolkata Knight Riders batter Rinku Singh rose to fame on Sunday, April 09, evening when he did an unbelievable against Gujarat Titans at Narendra Modi stadium. The 25-year-old smashed five consecutive sixes to chase 29 off the last five deliveries in a high-octane clash.

A day after Rinku Singh notched up unprecedented ending to KKR vs GT match, the middle-order batter revealed how he was once tasked to clean floor of a coaching centre but he ended up running away from that place, and started focusing on cricket.

“My brother used to work in a coaching centre, so he took us there where we were told that we should wipe the floors in the morning. I ran away from there and since then I have focussed on cricket,” Rinku told India Today.

“It has been a difficult journey for me, since my father did not like cricket. My father asked me to work with him. We used to carry cylinders on a bike with my brother. My mother also said that since our father is not supporting us, then we should just start working with him,” Rinku added.
