Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) principal owner Shahrukh Khan on Sunday dedicated the team’s second Indian Premier League (IPL) triumph to his youngest son AbRam. After the finals, Shah Rukh as a goodwill gesture wore the Kings XI Punjab jersey, a custom prevalent among the footballers as he exchanged plesantries with Preity Zinta.


“I dedicated this win to my little child Abram and the hard work done by Gautam and his team. Thank you Bengaluru and thank you IPL. We believed in ourselves and hard work done by the team management,” Shah Rukh told the official broadcasters after the IPL final.


Shah Rukh attributed the success to “teamwork”. “We didn’t have many big players and flashy names but team work did it for us. I told my children that Manish will do something special. If I were choose my team to play against any team in the final, I wouldn’t have chosen Preity’s team. I wished to win against any other team. Punjab is a great team, they did fantastic job during auction. But luck was on our side, we did manage to capture a few moments.”
