Shah Rukh Takes Pot Shots At Gavaskar For Criticising Buchanan

Mumbai, Apr 6 (PTI) Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan took a dig at former India captain Sunil Gavaskar for ridiculing John Buchanan’s multiple captain theory saying he bought the team and would run it the way he wants.

Former Australia World Cup winning coach Buchanan, who is now manager of Kolkata Knight Riders, had suggested the multiple captain theory for the IPL second season that has ruffled a few feathers, including that of former India skipper Sourav Ganguly.

“I have great respect for Mr Gavaskar. I have grown up enjoying his performance as well as KR Vishwanath and Kapil’s. We all respect him too much but having said that I would like to say that please give it (the multiple-captain theory) a breathing space to try now. If we fail we can always go back to the traditional way,” Shah Rukh said at a media conference here today to announce new initiatives with Team sponsors Nokia.

The Bollywood star said he has spent a lot of money in buying the team and would like to run it as he deems fit.

“I have spent lot of money on my team. If you have a problem then you buy your own team and run it the way you want,” he said, in an obvious response to Gavaskar’s comments. PTI
