Gautam Gambhir: For the first time in my seven years with KKR I was fuming
The lowest score in the Indian Premier League (IPL) history was recorded in the 27th match at Eden Gardens, Kolkata between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). RCB were allout for 49 runs in 9.4 overs chasing a small total of 131/10 in 19.3 overs.
Skipper of KKR Gautam Gambhir wrote for Hindustan Times, "We had two KKR teams playing the last game, first one that batted in the first half, the second one was playing for its life. I have never imposed myself but the batting collapse hurt me. I thought that we were not taking enough pride. I don’t know whether TV cameras or microphones caught it but we were chirping all the time when RCB were batting."
Gautam Gambhir further added, "I am happy to lose spots on the IPL Fairplay award list but I can not see my team slipping on the points table. For the first time in my seven years with KKR I was fuming. The loss against Gujarat Lions was still haunting. On the back of that, we collapsed from 65 for 1 to 131 all out against RCB. It was unacceptable."
