Punjab Kings surprisingly released Shahrukh Khan ahead of the IPL 2024 Auctions. It was a shocking decision considering PBKS needed an Indian player in that role. With him now in the auctions, there would be certain teams that could target the Tamil Nadu cricketer. Here, we take a look at three teams that could target Shahrukh Khan in IPL 2024 Auctions.
1) Chennai Super Kings
CSK is desperate for a player to replace Ambati Rayudu. With a good purse, CSK can afford to break the bank to sign the Tamil Nadu man. The move would also please the local fans, who would want to have a homegrown player in the team.
Anyways, CSK needs a player of Shahrukh’s attribute in the team. His finishing abilities can complement the likes of Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni. The raw power in him can be used to clear grounds in Chepauk where run-scoring can get difficult.
2) Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB is one of the teams that could target Shahrukh Khan in IPL 2024 Auctions. RCB needs to find some good Indian cricketers for the team. Shahrukh Khan is one such player who would also suit the home ground of the franchise.
At No.5 or 6, Shahrukh would be a good add. He is a quality cricketer against pace bowling and might do well as a finisher. These days, he is also bowling spin, which might further help the franchise.
3) Delhi Capitals
Delhi Capitals will need an Indian batter at No.5 if they have to improve the balance of the side. Shahrukh Khan can be that player.
If the Tamil Nadu man gets a slot in the team, DC can play a foreign all-rounder. This would solve the balance issues that the team has currently. Also, with his right-arm off-spin, there would be variety in the spin attack that currently includes Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav.
