It’s KKR vs Pune Warriors, not Sourav Ganguly’

Skipper Gautam Gambhir has refused to label Saturday’s sell-out IPL match against Pune Warriors as a contest between Kolkata Knight Riders and the city’s favourite sports icon, Sourav Ganguly.

Loyalties may be divided for the much-anticipated clash, with many seeing it as a revenge outing for Ganguly, who was snubbed by the Knight Riders and remained unsold in the auction after a bitter three-season association.

But Pune Warriors gave Ganguly a fresh lease of life by appointing him the team’s skipper. Now, he is all set to lead the side from the visitors’ dressing room for the first time at his ‘home ground’ Eden Gardens.

“It’s just the media that is creating the hype. For me, it’s just another game of cricket. Sourav is an individual. We are playing against Pune Warriors and not against Sourav Ganguly,” said Gambhir, on the match eve of the match.

“Whoever Kolkata wants to support they are free to support. I have always maintained KKR belongs to Kolkata. There is no other team that belongs to Kolkata,” Gambhir declared.

“We always play for the pride of Kolkata. We will always do that, whether we get the support or not. We go out there to make people happy and bring joy to them. Our job will be the same, whether we would be the away or home team tomorrow. We will keep playing for Kolkata be it tomorrow or near future,” the left-hander added.
