Pollack posted a topic in IPL ForumIPL 2017: How Gautam Gambhir imitated Shah Rukh Khan from Chak De to plot RCB's downfall at Eden Gardens Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made quite the statement while annihilating Royal Challnegers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday. After being skittled out for a paltry 131 batting first at the high-scoring Eden Gardens, the hosts came out all guns blazing to create Indian Premier League (IPL) history. Who would expect a line-up with the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle could be shot out for less than 50 in a T20 game! But KKR did the impossible with a stunning exhibition of fast-bowling. Their pace quartet of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Umesh Yadav, Chris Woakes and Colin de Grandhomme were simply too hot for RCB to handle. What many don't know, however, is the fact that KKR achieved this remarkable feat on the back of some stirring words by their captain Gautam Gambhir. Much like what KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan did in the inspirational movie Chak De! India , Gambhir gave a rousing speech to his team-mates after their dismal performance with the bat. In a column written for the Hindustan Times, Gambhir reflected upon his mind-set before the start of RCB's innings on Sunday. The Delhi lad was left fuming after his team's poor showing with the bat and even a cold shower couldn't cool him down. "As the innings break was nearing the end I got the entire team together. I started speaking and let go of all I had. I wanted intensity from my teammates. I wanted them to fight. I wanted them to win," wrote Gambhir. The 35-year-old then went on to reveal a serious threat made by him to his mates at that time. "I told them whoever dropped on intent should understand that this could be his last game for KKR, at least in my captaincy." Gambhir also remembered how his team-mates were "shocked and surprised" after his emotional pitch to them. He revealed how he had always been a relaxed skipper at KKR and had never imposed himself. "I thought that we were not taking enough pride. I am happy to lose spots on the IPL Fairplay award list but I can not see my team slipping on the points table," he wrote.
