Kolkata Knight Riders have been one of the most consistent teams in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the recent times. They are one of the three teams to have won the coveted trophy on two occasions. They registered their maiden IPL triumph in the 2012 edition when they beat the Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets in the finals.
Their next win came in the 2014 edition when they outplayed the favorites Kings XI Punjab by 3 wickets to etch their name on the trophy that season. Now, with the 2017 edition coming up, the Kolkata Knight Riders are all set to play some fierce cricket yet again. Their spirit of ‘Korbo, Lorbo, Jeetbo’ or ‘Work, fight, win’ has not dwindled one bit across the last 9 editions of the tournament.
Their owner, Shah Rukh Khan, has been a very involved member for the franchise and has often been seen at the stands cheering for the men in purple and yellow. In a recent video post, Shah Rukh Khan has come up with arguably the most motivational and inspiring promotional video for the KKR side. The video titled ‘Dus ki Dahaad’ was posted on the official YouTube handle of the Kolkata Knight Riders.
He starts with a question asking what does not change over 10 years. He continues with the answer stating that the fields changed, the captains changed, fortunes changed, the atmosphere changed, the fear of the defeat and the happiness of a victory – everything changed over the last 10 years of IPL history. The only thing that did not change was the passion of the fans. SRK urged the fans to rejuvenate the same passion and bring on the chants – Dus ki Dahaad, Ami KKR!
Kolkata begin their campaign against the Gujarat Lions in an away fixture at Rajkot on April 7. Their first home game will be on April 13 against the Kings XI Punjab. Watch the promotional video here:
