Former Punjab Kings (PBKS) coach Anil Kumble lauded Shahrukh Khan’s blazing cameo against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) which led to their third win of IPL 2023. Notably, Punjab narrowly won the contest by two wickets and three balls remaining against KL Rahul and Co. at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on Saturday, April 15.
“He is a finisher. That is what he does for Tamil Nadu in the games he’s played for them and it was really nice to see him finish things off. In the previous game as well, he had a cameo right at the end. But this one was under pressure,” Kumble said on JioCinema.
“They had to get almost 10 runs an over in the last two overs, with Harpreet Brar on the other end and Sikander Raza got out in the previous over. That was a well-made 23 to finish things off for Punjab. This will give him a lot of confidence going into the latter half of the tournament,” he added.
PBKS earned their third win of the season out of their five games after prevailing against LSG. They will play Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the PCA IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Thursday, April 20.
