Since he was young, Rinku has been interested in cricket, and he has worked hard to establish himself in the sport. At a young age, he began playing cricket and joined a neighborhood club to enhance his talents. However, because of his family’s poor financial situation, Rinku was forced to work as a laborer in a brick kiln to provide for them.

Despite these obstacles, Rinku never lost hope in his love of cricket. He kept on playing for his team and taking part in neighborhood competitions. His skill was quickly noted by a talent scout after he was seen competing in a nearby event.
