Gautam Gambhir’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has increased their hopes of reaching the final of the IPL-10 by defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad, who were captained by David Warner in the Eliminator yesterday.
The team now has to overcome another obstacle to reach the finals.
The KKR team will face Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians in qualifier 2 on Friday.
The winning team will get a chance to meet Rising Pune Superjunt on 21 May in the final.
In the match, Gautam Gambhir proved to be the hero for KKR, who won the heart of the cricket fans by playing an innings of 32 not out in the rain-affected match.
While batting first in this match, Hyderabad scored 128 runs in seven overs in 20 overs but after this, the target was rescheduled due to rain.
To win, KKR were to score 48 runs in six overs.
Thanks to the unbeaten innings of Gautam, Shah Rukh Khan’s team, KKR, achieved the target by losing three wickets in 5.2 overs.
Not only his batting, Gautam also influenced cricket fans from his tweets. In his tweets, he introduced himself to being the “big player” by saying two things in support of the rival Sunrise team.
Gambhir tweeted after winning the KKR in the match, “A win-win victory but my heart is sad for Sunrise. This kind of defeat is not easy to bear You are the champion side. ‘
In his tweets, he tagged the Sunrise’s mentor VVS Laxman and two prominent players Yuvraj Singh and David Warner.

Significantly, Gautam Gambhir has recently decided to take up the responsibility of the education of the children of 25 CRPF jawans martyred in the Maoist attack in Sukma district of Chhattisgarh while playing their responsibility towards the country.
Gambhir, who came forward to help the martyrs ‘families, had said on Twitter that his foundation would spend the education of the martyrs’ children.
He wrote on Twitter: “Gautam Gambhir Foundation will spend the education of the children of these martyrs. The loss of a loved one can not be compared to losing a cricket match. “Captain of Kolkata Knight Riders wrote,” When I lifted the newspaper and saw the daughters of two CRPF soldiers drowned in weeds The picture of that was printed. “25 CRPF personnel were killed in the Maoist attack last month in Sukma.
