Mohali, 5/4 (AO Bureau)Punjab Kings franchise director of cricket operations Anil Kumble praised the team’s young batsman Shahrukh Khan. He said that in Shahrukh, he gets a glimpse of West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard. Kumble bowled Pollard in the Mumbai Indians’ nets and believes that Shah Rukh has the same ability as a Caribbean all-rounder.
“He reminds me a bit of Pollard!” 💪

On this, Kumble said that Shah Rukh Khan reminds me a little bit of Pollard. When I was in Mumbai Indians, Pollard was quite dangerous in the nets. I used to bowl a bit in the nets then. I used to tell him that straight shots do not hit much. I will not try to catch the ball here at all. Now I am old enough and my body does not support me. That is why Shahrukh bats like me, at least I will not bowl in the nets. This is absolutely certain
It is a big deal to get praise from a legend like Kumble: Shahrukh
Shahrukh is also very happy to hear his praise from Kumble. He said that it is a big thing for me that a veteran player like Kumble said such a thing. I talk a lot with the players present in the Punjab team and the members involved in the support staff. They make me aware of the game
