Recalling his four-wicket haul for KKR against Delhi Daredevils in IPL 2008, ex-Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar said, "Everyone went mad. Even Shah Rukh was running all over the ground...he went mad and was delirious." He added, "I thought 'Did I win the World Cup?'...such was the frenzy all around. Shah Rukh said you've won a very big match for us."
