Shahrukh Khan of Tamil Nadu will be seen playing for Punjab Kings in IPL 2021.
Anil Kumble is with the Punjab Kings as coach for the second consecutive season.
During the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in January 2021, a player caught everyone’s attention with his quick batting. He had pledged to finish the match for the team while batting in the lower order. Her way of playing in a stormy style benefited the team and she managed to win the tournament. This team was Tamil Nadu, captained by Dinesh Karthik and that match was Shah Rukh Khan. Shahrukh Khan will now be seen playing for Punjab Kings in IPL 2021. Before the tournament started, the coach of the team Anil Kumble also praised this player. He even compared Shah Rukh’s ability to land big shots with West Indian star cricketer Kieron Pollard. Pollard plays for Mumbai Indians in the IPL.
Anil Kumble recalled the experience of bowling Kairan Pollard in the nets of Mumbai Indians and said that Shah Rukh has a similar ability. He said, ‘He reminds me of Pollard. When I was with Mumbai, Pollard was very dangerous in the nets. I used to bowl him often and first of all told him that he did not hit straight. Here I do not even try. Now I am old and my body also does not support in bowling. So I am not going to bowl to Shahrukh. 25-year-old Shah Rukh Khan was bought by Punjab Kings in the IPL 2021 auction for Rs 5.25 crore. He first came into the limelight through the Tamil Nadu Premier League.
“He reminds me a bit of Pollard!” 💪

Shahrukh said – I did not know that you will bid so much
Shah Rukh Khan said about the IPL auction that when he saw that there was a competition for him in the teams, he was quite surprised. He said, ‘The auction started around 3 pm and we were practicing at Holkar Stadium (Indore). I had to do some bowling and batting. So I asked the physio to tell me when my name would come up. I’ll take a break and watch the auction. It was good that my name did not come and my batting also did not have much effect. After practice, when we were going in the bus, I was sitting on the first seat in the bus. Then my name came. My heart started bouncing but I did not know that the bid would go up. It is nice to be among so many veterans and getting the most help. I am talking the most and trying to learn.
