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 May 27 2012, KKR had beaten Chennai Super Kings by five wickets to win the fifth season of the IPL to win the title for the first time.
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.

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.
