Denying any such kind of happening, Kolkata Knight Rider captain Gautam Gambhir said, “I have been playing for Kolkata Knight Riders for last seven editions of IPL. I never found Shahrukh Khan interfering in the team although I myself heard such kind of rumors.”

Gambhir added, “Shahrukh does not like to discuss about cricket with me. He has ordered us to take any decision in the sake of the team.”

Kolkata Knight Riders achieved the trophy for two times in IPL after Chennai Super Kings had it one time and Mumbai Indians also won the title once. KKR has displayed much better performance in running IPL. They won 4 matches among 5.
