The Accidental Hero of PBKS “Shashank Singh”

2 min read

Punjab Kings accidental auction buy turned out  to be a miracle buy. The drama of picking the wrong player in the auction took a fuming when they were asked whether they wanted  to pick him or not because of the same name Shashank. They wanted a 20 year old ”Shashank”  instead of that they bought a 32 year old Shashank. But sometimes a boon comes with an accident. That’s what Shashank showed  throughout this IPL 2024.

Against Gujrat Titans When Punjab Super Kings were in deep trouble and was reeling at 70 /4 after 8.4 overs. He seemed unfazed by the quick wickets falling and some heavy balls by Gujarat Titans bowlers. Later on he played fearlessly throughout his innings like it was a child’s game for him chasing the big total of 200 runs.

He sewed together two key alliances that ultimately determined the outcome of the match. Along with Jitesh Sharma, he scored 39 runs for the sixth wicket. Later, he and Ashutosh Sharma combined for 43 runs to completely destroy the Titans.

The 32-year-old Shashank completely destroyed the Titans’ bowling assault from ball one. The Titans’ bowlers were forced to guess because of Shashank’s assault, and ultimately, they were overwhelmed. The newest member of PBKS executed a masterful counterattack to guarantee that the asking rate remained within the team’s reach.

With the aid of six fours and four maximums, Shashank amassed 61 off just 29 balls and struck the ball at a strike rate of 210.34.

“I was very confident because the management and coaching staff here really backed me, even though I couldn’t get many matches for SRH before last year,” Shashank said.
