‘The Heartbeat Of KKR – Shah Rukh Khan!’: Shreyas Iyer After Winning IPL 2024

On a humid evening with clouds looming over Chepauk, Kolkata Knight Riders clinched their third IPL title with an impressive eight-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final. Led by Shreyas Iyer, KKR’s strong performance led them to lift the trophy.

In his post-match speech, Iyer expressed gratitude to the team’s co-owner, Shah Rukh Khan, whom he described as the team’s “heartbeat,” for his unwavering support, which has been crucial to the franchise’s morale.

The Bollywood star has consistently attended KKR matches, traveling nationwide to support his team. SRK’s support was especially crucial as he visited the dressing room to boost team morale after their setbacks in the group stages.

After the win, Iyer expressed his gratitude on the X, acknowledging SRK’s inspirational influence. “Special mention to the heartbeat of this team @iamsrk! Thank you for all your words of inspiration and encouragement,” Iyer wrote.

Emotions run high as the KKR family celebrates their victory

The win sparked joyous celebrations within the KKR team, in stark contrast to the disappointment felt in the SRH camp. Despite the loss, KKR conveyed a sincere message of respect and admiration to their opponents.

“Respect for @SunRisers. One bad game doesn’t define the exceptional season you’ve had in any way. Some unforgettable performances, and a top #TATAIPL2024 season for the men in orange,” KKR shared on X.

KKR’s path to the championship was defined by an exceptional all-around performance in the final match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The team’s bowlers put on an impressive show, limiting SRH’s typically high-scoring batting lineup to just 113 runs.

In reply, KKR successfully chased down the target in a mere 10.3 overs, losing only two wickets in the process. The victory held special significance for KKR, reminiscent of their inaugural title win at the same venue in 2012 under Gautam Gambhir’s captaincy.

This triumph not only underscored the team’s consistent performance and dominance throughout the season but also reaffirmed their status among the IPL’s top contenders.
