The 25-year-old Shashank Singh is an aggressive all-rounder originally from Madhya Pradesh. Singh came to the limelight with his unsung contribution in the recently concluded West Zone Inter-State T20 Tournament where he represented Mumbai. In his brief career so far, he has proved a utility player with his handy off-breaks while also hitting the long ball when needed.

Mumbai boasts of a powerful batting line-up and hence he didn't always get a lot of opportunities. His chance finally came against Saurashtra where he belted an unbeaten 22-ball 47 to take Mumbai home in a tense run-chase in the company of the experienced Abhishek Nayar. That was an inning that made people take notice of his hard-hitting abilities and eventually gifted him an Indian T20 League contract with Delhi for the 2017 season.

In 2019, Rajasthan bought him and he also made his first-class debut for Chattisgarh. He couldn't cement his place in the Rajasthan squad and was released in 2021. He was picked up by Hyderabad in the following season where he got a few games. His big moment came in 2023 when he became the first Indian First Class cricketer to score 150 runs and take five wickets in the same match during his team's Vijay Hazare Trophy 2023 win over Manipur by 88 runs. His decent domestic performances made Punjab buy him ahead of the 2024 Indian T20 League but not without some controversy. There was some confusion at the auction table as two players of the same name were on the list, and it seemed like Punjab bought him by mistake, but the franchise has come forward and cleared the air saying that he was always a target for them. This would give confidence to Shashank and he will look to produce some good performances whenever he gets the chance in the upcoming season.
