Punjab Kings (PBKS) batter Prabhsimran Singh played a stellar innings for his team in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The game between the two teams is taking place at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. 

Prabhsimran Singh opened the innings and made sure that he didn't make his team feel the void left by the overseas English players. The keeper-batter came out all guns blazing and provided his team with a breathtaking start in the ongoing game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. 

Prabhsimran Singh exhibited high-class batting at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The opening batter put the opposition under pressure and slammed a vital century, making sure he set the platform for the power hitters. 

With the way, Prabhsimran Singh was going, it needed something to remove him and Heinrich Klaasen did exactly that. During the second ball of the 15th over, V Viyaskanth bowled a quicker delivery to which the batter moved and the bowler followed him. 

Prabhsimran Singh went for a big heave but he didn't connect as he hit the pad down the leg and then lobbed up. It brushed the glove, and Heinrich Klaasen seized the opportunity. He moved ahead of the stumps and dived forward to scoop up the catch. 

Here's the video:

Hopefully, we finish off on a high - Shashank Singh 

Punjab Kings batter Shashank Singh, who scored 2 runs in the ongoing game, talked about his campaign in the IPL ahead of the match. He stated that management has given him the freedom to express himself. He also expressed his desire to finish the season on high. He explained: 

"This is my fifth year in the IPL, first three years didn't get many chances but I learnt a lot. By god's grace, I have justified my talent a bit this year. Better things waiting for me in the future, but let's focus on the present, focus on today's match. I have enjoyed whatever cricket I have played till now, doing decently well, when the team wins and I perform, it makes me happier. 

"Management has given me that freedom from match 1. I got out for a duck in the first match but they have given me the freedom, have asked me to play freely and express myself. Credit goes to the team management. I play for Chattisgarh, my home state at number 4 or 5, enjoying my role, lot to learn. I'll make sure that I come with a better mindset next season and make sure I finish the game. It's a good wicket, good crowd, hopefully we finish off on a high," he concluded.
