Not mentioning Shakib and me is insulting: Manoj Tiwari

Former Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Manoj Tiwary has not been too impressed when the franchise failed to mention him in a tweet. Before it, to commemorating the day they won their first Indian Premier League (IPL) title, KKR has posted a tweet mentioning the important players.

On Wednesday, the franchise sent out a tweet asking fans what their favorite memories were from the day. They also mentioned then-captain Gautam Gambhir, Manvinder Bisla, who was Man of the Match, star spinner Sunil Narine, former New Zealand batsman Brendon McCullum and former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee in the post.

Manoj Tiwary, who was also a part of that team, said that KKR were ignoring the efforts made by him and Bangladesh all rounder Shakib Al Hasan by not putting their handles among the mentions.

KKR then pointed out in reply to Manoj’s tweet that he had in fact been tagged in the image. “No way, Manoj. We would never miss tagging such a special ‘knight’ to our special night. You were, and always be a hero of that 2012 victory,” they said.
