He was unbeaten on 33 off 15 balls with one four and three sixes.
By the time he came to bat, the Tamil Nadu team needed 57 off 28 balls. The rest of the batsmen were under pressure to make runs. Shah Rukh Khan, however, batted calmly and ended the match with six off the last ball. Speaking about his match winning innings, Shahrukh Khan said that the pitch was very difficult for batting. He said the Tamil Nadu top order had cracked the target with good batting.
‘When I went batting, I realized how difficult it was to score on that pitch. After playing two balls, it seemed to me that our guys (top order) did a good job. Yes, the run rate is slow. But, I could not have finished the match if they had not provided a partnership. There are only two balls to make my dream come true. I knew fast bowlers would come. We plan to take the match to the end in the belief that it will be completed, ”said Shahrukh Khan. However, victory was possible only by playing without being stressed until the end of the match.
