The Dance of the Champ
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan’s joy knew no bound when his team Kolkata Knight Riders won its second IPL championship title on Sunday night at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.
It was a cliffhanger of a final between Shahrukh Khan’s KKR and Preity Zinta’s Kings XI Punjab. Batting first, KXIP posted a formidable total of 199 runs on the back of a stellar innings by Wriddhiman Saha (115 runs n.o. off 55 balls). In response, SRK’s KKR scraped past the winning post in the 19th over, seven wickets down and three balls to spare.
It was a nail-biting finish and both Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta were seen on the edge of their seats in the final moments. Finally, when KKR batsman Piyush Chawla hit the winning boundary, King Khan and his daughter Suhana were ecstatic. Preity Zinta’s face turned pale.
Very sportingly, Shahrukh Khan not just congratulated the KXIP but also wore their jersey.
On the field, he danced, cartwheeled, screamed and hugged his knight riders.
This is KKR’s second IPL title win after 2012. Interestingly, they lost 5 out of 7 games at the start of the tournament this year, and were almost written off by critics. But they made a miraculous turnaround and won 9 matches on the trot.
