Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) co-owner and Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan is known for his wit and humour. The ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ actor showcased these traits during KKR’s fan anthem launch on Facebook Live while interacting with KKR players.
Speaking to Shah Rukh Khan during the launch, KKR opener Rahul Tripathi recalled the famous innings from Brendon McCullum for KKR on the first inaugural night of IPL in 2008. McCullum, who is currently the head coach of the franchise, had smashed an unbeaten 158 runs in 73 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2008. McCullum had smashed 10 fours and 13 sixes in his innings. (IPL 2020 Full Coverage)
