In yesterday’s Indian Premier League (IPL) match Shah Rukh Khan cheered for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR,) which won against Rajasthan Royals (RR.)
Special supporter of KKR, Shah Rukh Khan reached Abu Dhabi to cheer for his team in the 12th T20 match between KKR and RR.
Mr. Khan was seen at the stands of the stadium with his wife Gauri Khan and son Aryan.
On the 30th of September, KKR won by 37 runs against RR and scored 174 runs.
While KKR scored 174 runs with 6 wickets in 20 overs, RR scored 137 runs with 9 wickets in 20 overs.
Dinesh Karthik, the Captain of KKR said, “: I would not call it a perfect game, a lot of areas to work on. It was a good game. The way Gill started, the way Mavi bowled and Russell started was good to see. Archer bowled very well. It was not that easy a wicket to bat on and made it look easier than it was. I keep saying these boys the journey they have been through, for them to come out there and express themselves is really special. We would have batted first, that was our plan, to put runs on the board.”
On the other hand, Steve Smith, the Captain of Rajasthan Royals said, “Didn’t quite go to plan, but that happens in T20 cricket sometimes. Few areas to improve on. I think it could go one way or another. We planned to put their death bowling under pressure. Lost too many wickets upfront. Keep moving forward, and it could get better. (On adapting to Dubai conditions) Yeah probably didn’t adapt as well as we could have, and dropped a few catches which cost us. It’s about trying to form whatever XI is the best for us. (On battle with Cummins) Wasn’t a great battle was it? I had a chat with him earlier and he told me, “You normally smack those in the nets!”
Shivam Mavi of KKR was declared as the Player of the Match for his performance.
On the other hand, Opener Shubman Gill was the highest run scorer, scoring 47 runs off 34 deliveries comprising five boundaries and a six.
The T20 match was held at Dubai International Stadium, Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE.)
