The Kolkata Knight Riders coasted to a 25-run victory over the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2018 eliminator on Wednesday, 23 May. The team co-owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was in high spirits after the win as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made it to Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with a 25-run win over Rajasthan Royals (RR).
Khan missed the team’s win at Eden Gardens owing to his professional commitments. But after the match, SRK took to Twitter to send his love for the KKR boys and apologised for not being able to talk to them in the dressing room — courtesy professional commitments.
Here is the video that Shah Rukh Khan shared for the KKR camp
“Sorry guys, was in the middle of a bath, getting ready for shoot so couldn’t say hi to you all in the changing rooms but love you and I’ll be there. KKR!,” SRH said in a video on Twitter.

SRK shares a very intimate relationship with the players of his KKR because of his absolute involvement with the growth of the team.
Earlier in the tournament, when KKR had lost to Mumbai Indians, SRK had apologised to KKR’s loyal fans for the team’s lack of spirit.
But as soon as they bounced back in style in the next game against Kings XI Punjab, SRK made it a point to do as promised to his captain.
SRK posted a photograph of himself smiling and said that Karthik had asked him to smile because he was very disappointed with the MI loss and dedicated his smiling picture to the captain.
My Captain @DineshKarthik asked me to smile cos I was so disappointed at the match before. This pic is for him. Thx @Russell12A @prasidh43 @SunilPNarine74 & #KKRTeam. Onwards & up… pic.twitter.com/G83DqW8Iwm

Captain Ajinkya Rahane’s slow batting cost Rajasthan Royals dearly as KKR beat them comfortably.
Rajasthan Royals, who entered the IPL 2018 after serving a two-year ban, finished fourth in the league stage. They entered the knockouts with 14 points in 14 matches. They had registered 7 wins in the league stage.
