Gujarat Titans Secure Shahrukh Khan for 7.40 Crore in IPL Auction



Tamil Nadu all-rounder Shahrukh Khan garnered attention at the IPL 2024 auction in Dubai. He was snapped up by the Gujarat Titans for Rs 7.4 crore after a fierce bidding war with the Punjab Kings. Shahrukh’s power-hitting ability against pace is his key strength, but he has struggled against wrist-spinners. Despite a somewhat lackluster season with Tamil Nadu, his skills as a finisher were highly sought after at the auction. In the TNPL 2023, he was the highest wicket-taker and also boasted a remarkable strike rate as a batsman. His ability to perform under pressure and his all-round skills make him a valuable asset for the Gujarat Titans.
