IPL made many players stars. Shah Rukh Khan has already made his own identity through IPL, and after him, now Salman Khan also wants to earn a name through this league. No… No, we are not talking about King Khan and Bhaijaan of Bollywood. Like Bollywood, Indian cricket also has Shahrukh and Salman Khan; both dream of becoming the king of cricket.
All-rounder Shah Rukh is a big name for the Tamil Nadu team in domestic cricket, and he has become the choice of IPL franchises as a domestic player to a large extent. Now four years younger than Shah Rukh, Rajasthan cricketer Salman Khan also wants to earn a name through IPL. Salman has been a part of the Indian team of the 2016 and 2017 Under 19 Asia Cup. Salman is a hard-hitting batsman like 27-year-old Shah Rukh.
I want to win full matches for the team.
Talking to the Times of India, Salman said I enjoy watching Shah Rukh’s batting. I am also working very hard on my batting. I want to win as many matches as possible for my team. Salman said that after completing the half-century, I try to convert it into a century and then try to convert the century into 150 runs.
I wouldn’t say I like to wait. In the CK Naidu Trophy played in April this year, Salman scored 506 runs in 5 matches at an average of 63.25. In which two centuries and one half-century are included. Not only this, but Salman also scored a double century against Bihar. He also played an innings of 161 runs in the quarter-final against Gujarat.

23-year-old Salman said I try to learn something new every day. Shah Rukh represented Punjab Kings in 2 seasons of IPL 2021 and 2022 and scored 270 runs in 19 matches at an average of 19.29. Salman also wants to wear an IPL jersey soon. He said I want to impress the franchisees and hope for a contract.
Shah Rukh is already playing, and he is doing well. Salman made his Ranji Trophy debut at the age of 17. Batting at number six, he scored 110 runs in 203 balls against Odisha in his debut match. After recalling his Ranji Trophy debut, Salman said I was happy to score a century in the debut match. My father had distributed sweets in happiness.
