Former India chief selector and current Punjab Kings spin bowling coach Sunil Joshi applauded the young but mature Prabhsimran Singh after the opener hit a match-winning hundred against Delhi Capitals on May 13. Notably, Prabhsimran became only the seventh uncapped player in the history of IPL to score a hundred. Joshi also said that Prabhsimran Singh is a young kid with a lot of talent and he is getting better.
“I think the talent was always there with him, I think the maturity has changed. He started thinking about the game. Started thinking and respecting the bowlers also. That has helped him a lot. Staying calm in different situations. He got a lot of starts but he could not convert them. It’s just the beginning. He is a young kid, lot of talent, he will get a lot of opportunities,” Sunil Joshi said in the post-match press conference.
However, the DC vs PBKS match turned out to be special for Prabhsimran Singh, as he has already took on the opposition bowlers from the start. He has consistently given PBKS a stunning start as an opener, but on Saturday, the youngster kept going. While other batsmen struggled to find their form on a typical Arun Jaitley stadium pitch, Singh was in a league of his own as well. Prabhsimran hit his first IPL century and was named the man of the match. He smashed 103 runs in 65 balls and struck 10 fours and 6 sixes on a pitch that was helping the spinners.
