IPL 2024 Auction Shahrukh Khan : Ever since Hardik Pandya, who was the captain of Gujarat Titans, went back to Mumbai Indians, there was speculation as to who will fill the void of the role that Hardik Pandya was playing in Gujarat Titans. But before coming to the mini auction, Gujarat Titans had prepared well for it. This was revealed on Tuesday. When the names of uncapped Indian players were called for the IPL 2024 auction, Gujarat Titans roped in Shahrukh Khan for the role of finisher. Although his old team Punjab Kings also tried a long way for Shahrukh Khan, but in the end Gujarat Titans bought him.

Shahrukh Khan was playing IPL for Punjab Kings

Shahrukh Khan was earlier playing for Punjab Kings. The team had bought him for Rs 9 crore, but perhaps he was not able to play as per his price, so the team released him. But today when his name was called again, along with other teams, Punjab Kings also started betting. Meanwhile, the other teams were eliminated, but the battle between Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans continued for a long time. Punjab Kings released him for Rs 9 crore. The team’s thinking might have been that it would be good if we get Shahrukh Khan again at a lower price. But when the bet reached Rs 7.40 crore, Punjab Kings backed out and Gujarat Titans took them to their side.

Shahrukh Khan’s performance in IPL has been like this

With the arrival of Shahrukh Khan, Gujarat Titans’ lack of an Indian player in the lower middle order seems to have been eliminated. Gujarat Titans have Rahul Tewatia and David Miller as well as Rashid Khan who can bat well in the later overs. Now another player has joined. If we talk about Shahrukh Khan’s statistics in the last two years, he has scored 273 runs in 22 matches. In this his strike rate was 137. The average is around 19. Now Shahrukh Khan will be seen playing with a new team in the next season of IPL. It remains to be seen how his performance is for Gujarat Titans.
