Mushtaq Ali Trophy Final, TN beats KAR Highlights: Shahrukh Khan hit a last ball-maximum off Prateek Jain to power Tamil Nadu for a 4-wicket victory over Karnataka in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Final at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Monday. With this win, Tamil Nadu successfully defended their title and also became the first team to win three Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophies.

Shahrukh was the man of the moment for Tamil Nadu as he scored 33* off 15 balls and sealed the game for Tamil Nadu with a maximum. The 26-year-old walked in when Tamil Nadu had lost two quick wickets and required 57 off 28 balls. He not only survived the hat-trick ball but led the chase and won the game for his team.

KC Cariappa got both set batsman, N Jagadeesan and captain Vijay Shankar, in consecutive balls to derail Tamil Nadu’s chase. However, Tamil Nadu’s last hope Shahrukh Khan did the job for the defending champions.
