The Chennai Super Kings continued their supremacy at home, as they defeated the Kolkata Knight Riders and went to the top of the points table in IPL 2019. Chennai beat KKR by seven wickets in a drab contest on a slow pitch.
Shah Rukh Khan was present at the MA Chidambaram Stadium to support his franchise and captain Dinesh Karthik. However, apart from Andre Russell, who scored a valiant fifty. But the final total of 108/9 was not enough for KKR to defend on the pitch. KKR’s famed top order failed to fire as Lynn made a duck, while Gill, Uthappa and others failed to apply themselves on a surface that was difficult to bat on.
Shah Rukh was at his energetic best and cheering his team despite the adversities. He was also seen mingling with the Chennai Super Kings team players and officials. King Khan was accosted by KKR CEO Venky Mysore and they were seen enjoying the match from a balcony.
SRK bid farewell to Chennai with a beautiful message
With KKR playing their lone match in Chennai, this was the only time fans saw SRK cheering his team in Chepauk stands. SRK has been a fixture in KKR matches back in Eden Gardens and will be seen when KKR next play Delhi Capitals in their backyard. Kolkata Knight Riders have played six matches and have won four and lost two matches and have 8 points to their name.
Shah Rukh Khan said goodbye to Chennai with the following message, “Thought while waiting to go back home to Mumbai….I should for no reason do a Chennai Selfie…so..bye Chennai & all the wonderful friends I met from the film industry & of course the sporting crowd at the stadium. Whistle Podu!!”
