From no-hopers to champions – the journey is hard for the KKR captain to sink in
This feels like a Dream: Gambhir KKR Captain Interview. It takes something very, very special to make Gautam Gambhir to smile. That intense and brooding face doesn’t light up for no good reason. But the last month has given Gambhir some absolutely stunning reasons to smile. He got back among runs, welcomed his baby girl into the world, led Kolkata Knight Riders to nine consecutive wins in Pepsi IPL 2014, culminating into their second IPL triumph and earned his place back in India’s Test squad.
So, in an interview with IPLT20.com after KKR’s three-wicket win over KIXP in the Final, Gambhir was pretty generous with his smile. He talked of his team’s truly marvelous rise from the early stages of struggles in the tournament and, like a true leader, spoke of the importance of having faith and trust in his teammates.
Here are excerpts from his interview:
KKR bowling mentor feels aggressive approach makes his team’s skipper better than the rest
Gambhir is IPL 2014 Best Captain: Wasim Akram KKR Bowling Coach. The man who made the cricket ball dance to his tunes, a mean machine, one of the most complete fast bowlers to have graced the game and one of the greatest cricketing minds ever – there’s not much about cricket that Wasim Akram doesn’t know.
If you can impress Akram, a leader par excellence, with your captaincy, you must be good. Hence, it is perhaps time for Gautam Gambhir to stop undermining his role as a captain with use of the line, ‘A captain is only as good as his team’. Because Wasim Akram thinks Gambhir is the best captain in Pepsi IPL 2014.
Co-owner Shah Rukh Khan expresses his emotions after KKR’s second IPL win
I knew Manish Pandey will Win it for me: Shah Rukh Khan. You don’t need to teach Shah Rukh Khan how to celebrate. Just a few days back, he had got the crowd at Eden Gardens on their feet as he broke into a somersault with a few cameramen, after his side sealed a spot in the IPL 2014 Final. Apart from the somersault, on Sunday night, the Baadshah of Bollywood left no stone unturned in his celebrations as his side scripted its second IPL victory.
He danced with his players, shared congratulatory handshakes and hugs with every member in his team as they were all soaking in the celebrations under a confetti downpour. It was 2012 all over again as M. Chinnaswamy Stadium almost resembled the home of the Knights – Eden Gardens. And one could be certain, a lot of KKR fans in Kolkata would have been equally ecstatic and thrilled like their beloved franchise owner after their side’s remarkable feat.
KKR all-rounder credits team’s self belief for their incredible turnaround
We never Panicked: Ten Doeschate Interview IPL 7 Final. Ryan ten Doeschate spent most of the first three years of his IPL journey cheering for his team, Kolkata Knight Riders, in the dugout.

After his second IPL title, the Dutch all-rounder spoke to IPLT20.com about KKR’s stupendous turnaround after the disappointment of the UAE leg.
