Shashank Singh, a surprise addition to Punjab Kings, showcased his skills in the recent IPL match against Gujarat Titans.

Despite being initially signed by accident in the auction, Singh’s exceptional batting skills came to the rescue as scored an unbeaten 61 runs off just 29 balls. This impressive performance played an important role in the Punjab Kings’ thrilling victory over Gujarat Titans by three wickets.

In the lead-up to the IPL auction last year, Punjab Kings made headlines for mistakenly acquiring Shashank Singh’s services. The confusion arose when the franchise accidentally bid for him, mistaking him for another player, all for the base price of 20 lakhs.

Despite efforts to fix the error, the deal was finalized, and Shashank Singh became a part of the Punjab Kings squad.

During the auction process, there was a moment of confusion when the franchise owners expressed their desire to reverse the purchase.

However, due to procedural limitations, the purchase stood, and Shashank Singh officially became a Punjab Kings player. Later on, the franchise clarified that despite the mix-up, Shashank Singh was indeed a player they had targeted and were pleased to have him on board.

The match against Gujarat Titans served as a stage for Shashank Singh to prove his worth. His powerful innings not only showcased his batting skills but also contributed significantly to Punjab Kings’ victory.

Despite the initial doubts about his acquisition, Shashank Singh’s performance on the field has undoubtedly silenced any concerns, establishing him as a valuable asset for Punjab Kings in the IPL.

After the match-winning knocks, social media erupted with memes and hilarious posts from fans. Many directly and indirectly poked fun at PBKS and their management for the mistaken decision that ultimately led to the victory.

Besides Shashank Singh, Prabhsimran Singh, Jitesh Sharma, and Ashutosh Sharma also exhibited their batting skills during the match against Gujarat Titans.

Prabhsimran made 35 runs off 24 balls, while Jitesh and Ashutosh displayed their ability to hit big shots, scoring 16 and 31 runs respectively, by the end of the IPL game.
