A player who has to listen to taunts on the field because of his name. A player whom Team India did not give a chance to play in the World Cup, today the same player has dominated Indian cricket. It is being talked about Tamil Nadu batsman Shahrukh Khan, who made his team the champion by batting amazingly in the final of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. This Tamil Nadu batsman gave the team victory by hitting a six off the last ball. Shahrukh scored 33 runs in 15 balls with the help of 3 sixes and a four and this innings snatched the trophy from Karnataka. Shahrukh Khan’s name is on everyone’s tongue today, but let us tell you that this player has struggled a lot to reach here.
Shahrukh Khan came into the limelight during the IPL auction last year. This player was bought by Punjab Kings at a huge price of Rs 5.25 crore. Shahrukh Khan’s base price was only 20 lakhs but Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings broke down to buy this player. In the end, Punjab included Shahrukh Khan in its team.

Although Shahrukh went beyond this and he has played till List A, Ranji Trophy, IPL. Shahrukh Khan came into the limelight in the year 2012. This player won the best all-rounder award in the Chennai Super Kings tournament.
Shahrukh Khan did not get a chance in the Under-19 World Cup!
Shahrukh Khan scored 624 runs in just 8 innings in the Cooch Behar Trophy in 2014. However, despite such a good performance, he did not get a place in the Under-19 World Cup team. This made Shahrukh Khan very disappointed, which he still regrets. Did not get a place in Under-19 Team India but he made List A debut for Tamil Nadu in 2018 itself, at that time Shahrukh was just 18 years old. In the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Shah Rukh Khan scored 21 runs in 8 balls in his debut innings but he failed in the next four matches.
Shahrukh sat on the bench for 4 years
Shahrukh Khan was selected in the Ranji team of Tamil Nadu in 2014 itself but this player sat on the bench for the whole 4 years. However, when Shahrukh got a chance to debut, he showed the threat of his bat. In his debut first class match, Shahrukh Khan played an innings of 92 runs for Tamil Nadu trapped in a difficult situation. Tamil Nadu won that match by 151 runs.
Shahrukh was rejected by Mumbai Indians
Let us tell you that Shahrukh Khan went to the Mumbai Indians trial before the IPL 2020 auction. Where he could not impress the selectors. Not only this, his finger also got hurt during the trial. No one bid on his name in IPL 2020 auction. But in 2021, Punjab Kings bought this player for 5.25 crores and now this player can be sold at a more expensive price in the coming auction. Because Shahrukh Khan is a finisher and every team needs such a player.
