After 4 unsuccessful seasons, finally Shahrukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders have won the Indian Premiere league 5. In a very interesting match between Shahrukh’s Kolkata Knight Riders and Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings, KKR beat CSK by 5 wickets. First time in five years, KKR made to the final and defeated the defending champion CSK winner of the last two IPL & lift the IPL 5 trophy. Knight Riders enters final by beating Delhi Daredevils. Chennai Super Kings made to the final after defeating Delhi Daredevils by 86 runs on Friday night.
Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni wins the toss and elected to bat first, scored 191 with Suresh Raina top scoring with 73. At half time, it looked like Chennai are favourites. When Gautam Gambhir, the top run-getter for KKR failed, it looked like it was all going CSK’s way. Manvinder Bisla then walked out and played a match-winning knock but got out at a crucial time.
In the final over though, it all came down to 9 off the last over. Manoj Tiwari, who has been with KKR through all the 5 years, kept his nerve to win it for his team with 2 balls to spare.
Wasim Akram dedicated the win to team owner Shahrukh Khan and said that the team won the trophy for him.
A visibly exhilarant Shah Rukh was seen hugging his team and said that he would be humble,
“From this day, this team doesn’t belong to any of the promoters, it belongs to Bengal. This is something the youngsters should believe in – resilience, patience, perseverance – if you believe, you can win.”
Shah Rukh also apologised for his earlier misbehaviour.
Happy & excited Shah Rukh did a few cartwheels on the field, and his better-half Gauri who was not spotted in any matches of the IPL was also spotted thee & smiles beside the exuberant hubby.
KKR co-owner Shahrukh Khan was also joined by his Bollywood family. Sanjay Kapoor, Ritesh Deshmukh, Genelia D’Souza, Sajid Khan, Juhi Chawla and her husband Jai Mehta were spotted chearing for KKR.
