Former India team opener Virender Sehwag has praised Punjab Kings player Shahrukh Khan. Sehwag said that Shah Rukh reminds him of the young Kirron Pollard. Punjab Kings selected Shah Rukh for Rs 5.25 crore in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 auction. Shahrukh also showed a glimpse of his hitting skills before the tournament was postponed due to Corona.
Although Shah Rukhan has not played a big innings in IPL 2021, Sehwag believes that he can play a big innings as well. Sehwag said in a conversation with Cricbuzz, “He reminds us of a young Pollard when he came in the IPL. Everyone was running after him, because he used to stand up and hit sixes. Shah Rukh also has the same quality.” “
No matter what happened on the last ball
Sehwag continued “Shah Rukh can score a century if he gets a chance to bat up the order. He is a player who doesn’t matter what happened on the last ball. Many batsmen think, ‘Oh, I got beat. Those who don’t think about the previous ball have a higher success rate. ”
107 runs scored in 8 matches in IPL
Shahrukh batted at number 6 for the Punjab Kings in IPL 2021 and managed to impress with his game. Shahrukh’s score has scored 6 *, 47, 15 *, 22, 13, 0 and 4. His best score was 47 runs from 36 balls against Chennai Super Kings. He scored a total of 107 runs in 8 matches in the season. Shah Rukh had scored over 200 runs for Tamil Nadu in the Syed Mustaq Ali Trophy earlier this year and thereafter he scored 198 runs in 5 matches in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
