TNPL 2023: Kovai Kings crowned champions
Shahrukh Khan's golden arm too fetched three wickets that of KB Arun Karthik, Nidhish Rajagopal M Poiyamozhi.
CHENNAI: Half-centuries by Suresh Kumar (57), U Mukilesh (51 n.o.), Atheeq (50) and Shahrukh Khan's shrewd captaincy ensured a 104-run win for Lyca Kovai Kings over Nellai Royal Kings in the TNPL final played at Tirunelveli on Wednesday evening.
This was a severe setback for Kovai as they got to make only 46 runs in the power play.
''I was always ready for this. I knew my knock would come in a crucial situation, happy that it came in the final. I get in (ground) , wait for the loose balls and then try to put it away. The plan was to take the game deeper and finish it well,'' said Mukilesh after his unbeaten 51.
