“There were a lot of things in my mind, but I tried to keep it simple,” he said at the end of the game. “The ball was rough and the wicket was slow, so I wanted to connect it off the middle. I was waiting to hit it over long-on, and I got the room to get it over square leg.

“It has been a special thing to hit a last-ball six,” he added. “I’ll remember this for a long time.” Shahrukh Khan who represented The Punjab Kings in the IPL remained unbeaten at 33 from 15 balls in an innings comprising three big sixes to guide Tamil Nadu to its historic title win.

Chasing a massive 152 runs set by the Karnataka team, Hari Nishant got Tamil Nadu off to a flying start. However he got dismissed after a 12 ball 23 runs knock, Tamil Nadu got slow in their approach of chasing 152 runs

The momentum shifted when Tamil Nadu lost their well set N Jagadeeshan and skipper Shankar in a matter of just two balls. Karnataka looked to have wrested control of the match before Shahrukh Khan’s last-ball six in the 20th over
“We played a bit slow in the middle, but that’s the trend of our team – the roles are well-defined, and the top order had trust in me and Mohammed,” Shahrukh said. “He (Mohammed) has been a special talent so thanks to him.”
