Shahrukh Khan‘s scintillating display of attacking batting powered Tamil Nadu to their second successive Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) 2021 title. The right-handed batter smashed an unbeaten 33 off 15 balls to help his team beat their arch-rivals Karnataka in the SMAT final Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Monday.

Chasing 151, the defending champions needed 16 runs off the last over. Karnataka captain Manish Pandey gave the ball to Prateek Jain, and the bowler almost got his team home as he needed five runs to defend on the final ball.

However, Shahrukh had some other plans as he smashed a bit hit over a deep square leg for a maximum to inspire Tamil Nadu to a thrilling victory.

Earlier, Karnataka posted 151/7 on the board in their allotted 20 overs. Batter Abhinav Manohar scored a maximum of 46 off 37 balls with the help of six boundaries. Praveen Dubey also made a valuable contribution of 33 from 25 deliveries.
