After Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) clinched a handsome victory over Kings XI Punjab, KKR owner and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Saturday said former KKR skipper Sourav Ganguly who came to see the match at Eden Gardens had brought luck for the team.

"Sourav had brought luck for the team. Sourav was sitting at a place far away from me so we could not talk today. But definitely I will talk to him soon," said Shah Rukh Khan.

Shah Rukh also expressed his happiness for his team playing well as team.

"To be honest I am a sportsman at heart. I believe that nobody wants to loose, everybody wants to play well and win the game. Whenever I was sad, which was quite often because we didn't get together as team. I wasn't sad because of losing I was sad because we didn't play as a unit," said Shah Rukh Khan. He also reasserted that for him playing well as a unit was more important than winning.

"Even if we don't win this time I would be ok because this time we are playing well as a team. Gautam and all the young boys are trying really hard, playing hard. We are all playing as a team as a unit we are trying hard and that's the big thing," said Khan.

"The boys seemed confident and happy. We are a small unit and we are coming together. But overall a good set of cricket will be played by our team and that's what make me proud," he said.
