IPL Auction 2024 : Shahrukh Khan Secured by Gujarat Titans for Rs 7.4 Crore

Talented Tamil Nadu all-rounder Shahrukh Khan secured a significant deal with Gujarat Titans, fetching Rs 7.4 crore during the IPL 2024 auction held in Dubai. The bidding war unfolded between Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans before Shahrukh ultimately joined the latter.

Released by Punjab Kings earlier, Shahrukh’s IPL journey has seen him play 33 matches, showcasing a formidable strike rate of 160+ in the 2023 season. Despite facing challenges against wrist-spinners, his prowess as a power hitter, particularly against pace, added to his allure during the auction.

While his recent white-ball season might have been modest, Shahrukh’s reputation as a finisher and his remarkable performance as the highest wicket-taker in the TNPL 2023, claiming 17 scalps in nine games at an economy rate of 6.66, emphasized his value. Eager to contribute with both bat and ball, Shahrukh expressed his readiness to bowl, highlighting his versatility and determination to make a notable impact in the upcoming IPL season.
