Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan may be doing well in his film career but his cricket game has taken a setback. He has signed Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar for his team Kolkata Knight Riders but he is likely to be banned from playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The IPL Governing Council has decided to ban the troubled cricketer following five years ban imposed on him by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for indiscipline. It is said that the IPL Council has banned him to avoid embarrassment all-around.
Meanwhile, Shahrukh Khan is doing all he can to bring Shoaib back to his team. He knew that he can hire another player but he wants him back. He said that he would speak to BCCI and IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi on the matter and try to lift the ban. He is of the opinion that Shoaib should be allowed to play in the domestic cricket though he is banned from international cricket.
