Rinku, a left-arm batsman, hit a four and two sixes off Lucknow Super Giants fast bowler Marcus Stones in Kolkata’s attempt to chase 210 in Mumbai.

But in the last league match of the season, Kolkata was knocked out of the tournament and in the end he fell to a great catch in one hand by Evin Lewis.

McCullum, the former New Zealand captain who is set to join England as coach before the three-Test series against the Kiwis in June, wished Rinku and Kolkata a happy future in the T20 tournament.

“Rinku is a player that KKR will invest in, no doubt, in the next few years and will see him really improve and maybe even challenge for higher honors in time,” McCullum told reporters after Kolkata’s two-run loss.

“Too many people aren’t able to bat in the middle order and try to get the games off the fire the way he did for us on a few occasions.”

He added: “I am moving forward with the challenge of coaching England. But I will follow all the boys in KKR and especially Rinku. I really wish him well. ”

McCullum coached two-time champions Kolkata in the runners-up spot in the previous IPL edition which started in India but ended in the UAE due to a coronavirus epidemic.

Led by India’s Shreyas Iyer, Kolkata have finished the season with eight defeats and six wins in 14 matches, but McCullum said the team would return stronger in the next edition.

“I’ve had a great time over the last few years, we haven’t been able to do that this year but I think we’ve played some great cricket. It was an amazing story last year, “said McCullum.

“I will follow this team and I know they are in really good hands with Shreyas (Iyer) captain and all the support staff. Keep an eye on KKR next year. ”

McCullum scored an unbeaten 158 off 73 balls for Kolkata in the first match of the first IPL in 2008.

The 40-year-old, best known for his offensive style in his 101-Test career ending in 2016, was named as England’s new head coach last week after winning just one of his last 17 Tests.
