The team’s middle-order strength has always been questionable and after Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell, the team needs a player who could fit in the role which ABD was playing. They wanted to secure Shahrukh Khan’s services in 2020 when they engaged in a bidding war against the Punjab Kings but later gave up after the bid crossed five crores.
The Royals have always lacked to own a hard-hitting middle-order batter and will look forward to strengthening those facets in this upcoming mega auction. The Rajasthan franchise will not get a better Indian option to do this role flawlessly and could target and hook him into the team.
As always, Dhoni would love to groom the youngsters and his guidance will be of great use to this future prospect of India. Shahrukh as a hard-hitter would be apt in the Super Kings’ line-up and he also bowls some handy off-breaks and this all-round capability would attract the captain cool.
