Durban: Kolkata Knight Riders’ owner and Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan on January 10 said he would try and find a role for Sourav Ganguly in his IPL team after the former India skipper remained unsold.
Ganguly, who led KKR in the last edition, was left red-faced as none of the 10 franchisees showed interest in buying him at the two-day auction in Bangalore.
“I would love it, I would love Sourav to be an integral part. You don’t have a team in Kolkata without him. So, I will speak to Dada when I get back,” Shah Rukh said.
The fans of Ganguly on January 9 burnt Khan’s effigies in Kolkata protesting his exclusion from the team.
Shah Rukh refused to speak on why other teams ignored the former India captain.
“I don’t think I should be commenting on the nine other people. There are 350 to 400 players.
