Rinku Singh sweats on the field 3 days in the gym, 3 days in a week
Rinku Singh says, ‘I do gym sessions for three days in a week and will run for an hour on the ground on three days. I bat everyday. If there is no match on Sunday, I take rest, otherwise I don’t. After IPL matches, I used to go to hotel and gym while my trainer said that I should rest.
