They are legends… but I think I am the best: PBKS star Shashank Singh

Shashank Singh's win is a testament to the power of self-belief and the importance of teamwork. His performance, along with the contributions of his teammates, ensured a thrilling victory for the Punjab Kings.

In a dramatic finish at the IPL 2024, the Punjab Kings (PBKS) snatched victory from the jaws of defeat against the Gujarat Titans (GT). A key factor in this win was the performance of 32-year-old all-rounder Shashank Singh, who smashed an unbeaten 61 off just 29 balls to chase down a daunting 200-run target.

“When I Go to Bat, I Think I Am the Best”

Shashank Singh’s success stemmed from a powerful self-belief. “They are the legends of the game,” he said, referring to the GT bowlers, “but when I go to bat I think I am the best.” This unwavering confidence, coupled with the backing of the PBKS owners and coaching staff, allowed him to shine on the big stage.

Shashank Singh Steals the Show

While Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill had set a challenging target, Shashank’s pyrotechnics proved too much to handle. His well-timed shots and winning mentality propelled PBKS towards victory. The Player of the Match admitted that the win still feels surreal: “Still trying to sink in… proud of the effort.”

Punjab Kings make the Dream Work

Shashank Singh wasn’t the only hero for PBKS. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan praised both Shashank and Ashutosh Sharma for their morale-boosting performances. Dhawan, though dismissed cheaply himself, acknowledged Shashank’s brilliance and his ability to keep his cool under pressure. Ashutosh Sharma, the other young star who played a crucial role, echoed Shashank’s sentiment, expressing his gratitude to the team management for believing in him.
