Shah Rukh Khan bats for Shoaib

April 4, 2008

Strongly supporting Pakistani tearaway fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar who was debarred from taking part in cash-rich Indian Premier League, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan said he would ask the Indian Cricket Board to review the decision.

Khan's support comes in the wake of BCCI's decision to disallow Shoaib from playing in the IPL tournament in view of Pakistan Cricket Board's decision to ban him for five years.

"I will talk to Lalit Modi to reconsider the decision," said Shah Rukh, who is owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders team, for which Shoaib has been roped in to play.

He said the charges against the fast bowler are not so serious that his presence could create a negative impression in the minds of young crickters.

"It is a ban related to his behaviour and I hope things get sorted out in our favour," Shah Rukh said.
