Cricket News: Shahrukh Khan, the batter for Tamil Nadu, is a “unique talent,” according to Wasim Jaffer. He could also soon represent India in all three formats. Khan won Tamil Nadu with a stunning 15-ball 33. The Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy will be awarded in 2021-2022. His side needed five runs to win, so he hit an under-the-pump six with the last ball. In an interview with The Indian Express, Jaffer said people are quick to tag a player. In just one format after such an innings. He argued that even as a finisher, Khan is technically sound. And then with some improvement, can develop the mettle. It is for both ODI and Test cricket as well.
Cricket News, “He can improve technically. Even in T20, there is technique. Not like Test cricket, of course, but if you look at the big hitters, they are technically fine. I feel he can play all three formats. He has the potential. People are quick to tag someone, that he can play only T20 or only Ranji. I told him that until you reach the age of say, 33-34, and your fitness holds, you should look to adapt yourself to play all three formats,” Wasim Jaffer said.
Despite the fact that he has played a significant quantity of T20 cricket. There’s also List-A cricket, which includes the IPL. Only five first-class matches have been played by Shahrukh Khan. Khan has 231 runs with a strike rate of 33. There were two fifties and a top score of 92 not out. On his first-class debut, he played Kerala.
Lastly, Wasim Jaffer also coached Shahrukh Khan at Punjab Kings in IPL 2021. Also, added that the youngster possesses a rare six-hitting ability. Against pacers, not requiring much time to settle. Jaffer said that although keeping such a reputation intact. It is the “toughest job” in the T20s, Khan has done that effectively.
