The Indian Premier League (IPL) has given so many superstars to India that the list can go on forever. In every game, there is a glimpse of a future superstar. The Wednesday evening showed a new talent in Shashank Singh who grabbed quite a few eyeballs with his lusty blows in the last over of SRH’s innings.
Shashank Singh, being sent to bat at No. 7, finished SRH’s innings on a high as he with Marco Jansen accumulated 25 runs off the last over. The SRH all-rounder took Lockie Ferguson to the cleaners as he hit him for three consecutive sixes off the last three balls.
