Kolkata Knight Riders co-owner Shah Rukh Khan has said that he will not be present during his side’s must-win Indian Premier League encounter against Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday.
“No, I won’t come to Chennai for the match. Think the team needs to introspect and play without my interference … emotional or physical,” Shah Rukh, who watched most of KKR’s matches, said on his Twitter page.
A frustrated Shah Rukh said that only prayers will not help the team’s cause as what matters is performance on the field.
“Ha ha … someone said better way to pray at KKR matches will help…I don’t think so … I think better play at KKR matches will help our cause,” said the Bollywood superstar.
Shah Rukh on Sunday said he had to seek solace from his children and close friends after KKR lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets in their last match.
KKR need to win all their three remaining matches to stay in contention for a semi-final berth.
