Should be a great game, I can also remember you smashing me around Eden Gardens a few years ago."
"Yeah sure in my dreams. I would ever be able to smash u around!" Khan responded.
Shah Rukh had faced a few deliveries from Warne at that time.
Earlier, Shah Rukh posted a photograph of himself wearing a blue shirt with India written on it and a tri-colour armband wrapped around his hand ahead of the final.
"All spruced up 2 cheer for CT17 Finals. Also excited to present the MiniTrails to the world," Shah Rukh who is promoting his upcoming movie "Jab Harry Met Sejal" tweeted.
