Shashank Singh made a significant impact in the SunRisers Hyderabad round against the Gujarat Titans in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday. SRH was reduced to 161/5 in 18 overs when Singh came out to hit. He played in his inaugural IPL round and Singh showed no uneasiness as he scored 25 out of just six balls. His rounds included one fours and three sixes, all beaten against GT fast bowler Lockie Ferguson in the final game.
Singh’s attack ensured the SRH reached a total of over 190 compared to the GT. This is a video of three of the six that Singh beat up against Ferguson.
