Anil Kumble praises Punjab Kings Player Sharukh Khan on his role on the team


Punjab Kings’ newcomer Shahrukh Khan has figured out how to dazzle the group’s head and overseer of cricket tasks, Anil Kumble. 

The Former Indian cricketer loaded gigantic acclaim on the young person and even drew matches with Kieron Pollard. Anil Kumble recalled his experience of bowling to Kieron Pollard in the Mumbai Indians (MI) nets and said that Shahrukh Khan brings a comparable range of abilities to the table.

“Yeah, he reminds me a bit of Pollard actually. When I was with Mumbai Indians, Pollard in the nets was dangerous. I used to bowl a bit (in the nets), and the first thing I used to tell him was don’t hit straight. Here I’m not even trying. I’m a lot older now, and the body doesn’t take bowling anymore. So, I’m not going to bowl at Shahrukh, for sure”. Quoted by Anil Kumble.

Shahrukh Khan has played 31 T20 coordinates so far, scoring 293 runs at a strike pace of 131.39. With his batting abuses in the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL), the 25-year-old started a serious offering battle for his administrations in the IPL closeout in February. 

The Delhi Capitals, the Royals Challengers Bangalore and the Punjab Kings bid for him, with Preity Zinta’s franchise getting Shahrukh Khan for Rs 5.25 crore.

“Being amongst such stalwarts of cricket, it feels amazing to be here and the inputs have been great. I have been having a lot of conversations with everyone around here, getting to learn a lot as well,” said by Shahrukh Khan

“The auction started at around 3 PM I guess, and we were practising at the Holkar Stadium, obviously I had to bat and bowl a bit. So I told our physio that ‘please let me know when my name comes up. I’ll take a break and come and see the auction.’ Luckily my name didn’t come up, and it didn’t bother my batting much. Right after we finished practice and we hopped onto the bus, I still remember sitting on the first seat and my name came up. My heart started pumping, but I didn’t expect it to rise as much as it did,” added by him

Punjab Kings will inaugurate their IPL 2021 mission against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) on April 12 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
