Manoj Tiwary disappointed not to represent Kolkata Knight Riders

Manoj Tiwary was disappointed to not represent Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League 2014 and stated that he will miss playing under the large crowds of Eden Gardens.

“I was very surprised to see the strategy of the Kolkata officials at the auction table… It seemed they were not at all keen on retaining me or Laxmi or buying any other Bengal player. I am very sorry to say that the approach of Kolkata officials has left me shocked,” Tiwary was quoted as saying to The Telegraph.

“I feel sorry for the cricket lovers of Bengal. We have such passionate supporters here. And the crowd obviously would want some home-grown talents in their beloved side. But the Kolkata officials have robbed them of the chance to cheer for Bengal players. The reverse is also true… I know how much the Bengal players love to perform in front of the crowds at the Eden. We will miss playing at the Eden. We will miss the atmosphere,” added Tiwary.

“Yeah, I’m a bit disappointed that none from Bengal was bought by Kolkata. But then, I wish them all the best. Hopefully, they will do well in the coming seasons,” said Shukla who was bought by Delhi for Rs 1.50 crore and gave his wishes to the Kolkata team.

“Delhi have shown immense faith in me. It is my duty now to repay their faith. We all know Delhi haven’t performed well last season. But past is past… All I want to say is watch out for this team. We are well-equipped in every department,” added Shukla.

Dinda, who on the other hand was pleased that he was picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) said,” I don’t want to think much about why Kolkata didn’t go for me. I’m proud that I am a member of the Bangalore. I’ve always wanted to play for them. Last season, Siddharth Mallya had told me that he wanted me in his team. Since then, I was harbouring hopes of playing for the Bangalore. After the auction, Siddharth texted me whether I’m happy or not… I told him yes.”
