Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Final, Tamil Nadu vs Karnataka: Shahrukh Khan’s Last-Ball Six Sends Twitter Into Meltdown

Tamil Nadu retained the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, India’s premier domestic T20 competition, on Monday after a thrilling finish at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The two-time champions won the match against Karnataka on the last delivery as star batter Shahrukh Khan hit a sensational six to settle the game. This is Tamil Nadu’s third triumph in the history of the tournament. Shahrukh Khan sent Twitter into a state of meltdown after smashing the last-ball six. Chasing a target of 152, Tamil Nadu needed 17 runs in the final over and the 26-year-old showed that he was ready for the job.

Facing left-arm pacer Prateek Jain, Shahrukh began with a four and added 11 runs to the chase which also included two wides.

With five runs needed off the final delivery, Shahrukh, who plays for Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the IPL, received a half-volley on the leg stump, which he slammed over square leg boundary for a maximum.

Fans went berserk after Shahrukh’s heroics and even Chennai Super Kings (CSK) shared a photo of skipper MS Dhoni following the game on television.


Here are the Twitter reactions:

Other than Shahrukh’s stunning display, Tamil Nadu also saw some good batting openers from Narayan Jagadeesan (41) and Hari Nishaanth (23).

Meanwhile, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore was also in good bowling form and took three wickets in four overs.
