Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan was the backbone of Kolkata Knight Riders and still is. He is not just the owner of the team but a motivator and fan. He was spotted cheering tirelessly for his boys in the previous sessions of the IPL, but this year, he missed few matches. And now, he has decided to leave them alone in their 'do or die' match against the Chennai Super Kings today.
Shahrukh thinks his presence at the stands adds pressure to his boys. “No i wont come to chennai for the match. think the team needs to introspect & play without my interference...emotional or physical," Shahrukh wrote on his Twitter page. “ha ha someone said better way to pray at kkr matches will help...i dont think so...i think better play at kkr matches will help our cause," he added.
The Kolkata Knight Riders has to win all the remaining three matches, including the match against the Chennai Super Kings today, to stay in contention for a semi-final berth.
