Shashank SinghShashank Singh

Thirty-one years old, Shashank Singh is a hard-hitting all-rounder who plays domestic cricket for the Chhattisgarh cricket team. Considering his ability to take bowlers to the cleaners with his range hitting prowess, he has been procured by multiple franchises, including Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad, since 2017. However, he is yet to get an opportunity to feature in a match in the coveted tournament.

Shashank Singh started playing when he was 8 years old. He took his initial cricket coaching in Madhya Pradesh till the age of 17 years, and later in 2008, he moved to Mumbai, seeking better cricket coaching and opportunities. The greatest challenge for 17 years old young Shashank Singh after coming to Mumbai was to find a suitable cricket academy from where he could pursue his cricket career. He joined the VidyaParadkar Cricket Academy in 2008. He started coaching there under the adept of VidyaParadkar, a veteran cricket coach who has been training young cricketers in Mumbai for more than three decades. Shashank attributes all his success to VidyaParadkar.

After learning the specifics of cricket from VidyaParadkar, he joined Mumbai’s DY Patil Sports Academy and started playing club-level cricket for their team. In 2015, he first noted the Mumbai selector after playing an unbeaten inning 0f 65 runs off 23 balls. This inning helped him get into Mumbai’s T20 team, as he made his domestic cricket debut on April 1, 2015, in a T20 match against Cuttack in the 2015-16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. On December 10, 2015, he made his List-A cricket debut in the match against Punjab, played in Hyderabad. Considering his cracking performance in the domestic circuit, he was bought by Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) for his base price of Rs. 10 lakhs in the players’ auctions ahead of Indian Premier 2017

In 2019, Shashank Singh moved to Chhattisgarh to continue the rest of his cricket career with the Chhattisgarh cricket team. On December 9, 2019, he played his maiden Ranji Trophy match, representing Chhattisgarh in a match against Odisha. The Rajasthan Royals bought him the 2019 and 2020 seasons of the IPL; however, he did not get to play a match in both seasons

Shashank Singh has always been one of the favourites in the league cricket system in Mumbai. He loves to strike the ball in the cleanest way possible; he can also bowl utility off-breaks and is a good fielder if required.
