Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan penned down a heartfelt message for the players of the franchise after the win in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. He praised the coaching staff as well and also gave a special mention to Gautam Gambhir for his contribution. 

After the long wait of 10 years, Kolkata Knight Riders finally had their hands on the IPL trophy. The Shreyas Iyer-led side produced a dominating performance throughout the entire tournament and bagged their third title in the history of the league. 

Under the mentorship of Gautam Gambhir, they ushered in a selfless approach and it’s fair to say that throughout the tournament, it was a proper team effort. They dominated the league stage and were the first team to qualify for the playoffs. 

Kolkata Knight Riders managed 9 wins in the 14 games and lost just three games while two got washed out. Right from the start of the tournament, they looked magnificent as they nearly outplayed all the teams that they played against. 

Their dominance continued even in the playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders thumped Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Qualifier 1 by 8 wickets and advanced to the final of the tournament. They were even better in the final against the same opponents as they dominated right from the ball 1. 

Kolkata Knight Riders bundled out Sunrisers Hyderabad for just 113 runs and then chased the target with 8 wickets in hand. They reached to the target within 11 overs as they registered their third IPL win, having won early in 2012 and 2014. 

As KKR won the IPL 2024, Shah Rukh Khan came up with a heartfelt message for the team. He highlighted how the team was together throughout the tournament and also lauded the support staff for their contribution. Taking to his Instagram account, he stated: 

“To my boys.... my team.... my champs..."these blessed candles of the night. .... My Stars...of KKR. I cannot do a lot of things and you cannot do them all either... but together we manage most of them. That's what @KKRiders stood for. Simply being together.

 “Beyond the ability and guidance of @gautamgambhir55...the earnestness of Chandu, the love of abhisheknayar & leadership of @shreyasiyer96... the dedication of Tendo, @bharathi. _arun @1crowey & @leamonnathan... this team is built on no hierarchy just pure respect for collaboration. “

GG said if u can't support a single vision as a team - Shah Rukh Khan 

Shah Rukh Khan further talked about Gautam Gambhir’s message for the team, saying that his message was taken on a good note by all. While lavishing rich praise on the team, he stated: 

“GG said if u can't support a single vision as a team....u are leading to a division in the team. Each player understood that. Young and old. The Trophy is not a testament of having the best players in the team…...but a proof of each player being the best for the team. Boys you are all made of Star stuff!! 

“Love you all and don't let the dancing stop! Also, so happy and thankful for each and every KKR fan and I hope all around the world youngsters learn that Tough times don't last....Finally Tough and Happy teams do! Korbo... Lorbo...Jeetbo....Always. See u all at the stadium in 2025.”
