India and Kolkata Knight Riders finisher Rinku Singh was put in a pickle while practising with KKR ahead of the Indian Premier League 2024. One of Rinku's smashing six hit a budding cricketer in the forehead during the nets.

Kolkata Knight Riders posted a video of the incident on March 12, Tuesday, where the batter was seen immediately walking up to the child and apologising. Rinku was accompanied by KKR batting coach Abhishek Nayar who offered the kid a Kolkata Knight Riders hat.

Rinku even signed the hat for the kid before the latter left.
