HR lessons from the spirit of the team(Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Narine,Robin Uthappa,..) : Kolkata Knight Riders
2014 IPL champions, Kolkata Knight Riders had a motley group of characters who made up a title winning squad. Led by a determined Gautam Gambhir, KKR won their second IPL title this season, with both their wins coming under him. KKR had poor first three seasons, finishing 6th, 8th and 6th in group stages in 2008, ‘09 and ‘10 respectively. The team was revamped in 2011, when KKR bought Gambhir for the highest price in IPL auctions’ history, paying $2.4 million for the southpaw. Having made him the captain, Gambhir says the owners put their full faith in him, allowing him a free reign, uninterrupted from any outside pressure. In a freewheeling chat with TNN, Gambhir cited an example of how KKR CEO Venky Mysore and co-owner Shahrukh Khan took his advice in the 2012 IPL auctions, and made the then-surprise buy of West Indian Sunil Narine for $700,000, an unexpected sum for someone who wasn’t well known and had played only 3 international matches. Gambhir says the owners were completely clueless about ...

Indian Cricket Team’s Yuvraj Singh offered his congratulations to captain Gautam Gambhir and the Kolkata Knight Riders on their IPL - Indian Premier League 7 championship victory. The cricketer also shared his sympathies for his former team, the Kings XI Punjab.
In what promises to be a high octane IPL final in Bangalore on Sunday, skippers of Kings XI Punjab and Kolkata Knight Riders – George Bailey and Gautam Gambhir respectively — are focusing on their strengths instead of thinking much about each other’s potential.
In what turned out to be an anticlimactic finish to the battle of the top two, the Kolkata Knight Riders overcame Kings XI Punjab by 28 runs. As a result, the Gautam Gambhir-led side has stormed into the Pepsi IPL 2014 Final – to be held at 8 pm on June 1, 2014. KKR Innings Powerplay: KKR bounce back after losing the toss and their skipper Earlier, George Bailey won the toss and chose to field first at Eden Gardens. The decision paid off as Mitchell Johnson struck in the second over to get rid of Gambhir (1). But Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey then partnered to bring the innings back on track. Riding high on his great run during the league stage, Uthappa raced away to 37 off 21 deliveries during the powerplay. Even Pandey joined in the action – albeit a bit later – as KKR posted 55 for one in the first six overs. During this period, barring the first two overs – which cost a combined five runs – every other powerplay over yielded at least nine runs. In fact, the fourth over, bowled by Johnson, ...

Kolkata: A phenomenal knock from Yusuf Pathan, who blasted his way to a 22-ball 72, catapulted Kolkata Knight Riders to the second-place in the point table as the hosts hammered Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets in their final IPL match, here on Saturday. (Scorecard | Highlights) Pathan made full use of the two lives to smash the fastest fifty in IPL history as KKR knocked off a 161-run target in 14.2 overs when they were required to overhaul it in 15.2 to make it to top-two. Pathan enthralled the packed Eden Gardens crowd with his exceptional knock which featured seven sixes and five fours. After being dropped on nought and 15, he completed his half-century in just 15 balls. The result pushed Chennai Super Kings to third place and KKR will now clash with table toppers Kings XI Punjab in the first Qualifier on May 27 at Eden Gardens. Leading run-getter Robin Uthappa (41) and Gautam Gambhir (28) set up the chase before Yusuf's blitz. Yusuf was on his way back to dug out before he could open his accoun .. ...
YOUSF PATHAN'S 72 OF 22 BALLS TOOK KKR OVER THE LINE Kolkatta: It was a run-chase that would be remembered for a long time to come as Kolkata Knight Riders made the impossible possible against the Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The home side stormed to the target of 161 in 14.2 overs to displace Chennai Super Kings from the second spot in the IPL 2014 Points Table. Yusuf Pathan was the man of the moment who smashed 72 off 22 balls When Hyderabad setup a total of 160 for seven, Kolkata had to get their target 15.2 overs. And, what a run-chase it was. After a decent start, powered yet again by Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa. Uthappa smashed 41 off 30 when he was dismissed in the 10th over. Ryan ten Doeschate was then dismissed first ball and at 78 for four in 10, it looked unlikely Kolkata would make it before the settled mark. But that was when Pathan teed off. Helped by a dropped chances through the innings, he started using his luck and smashing it around. He smashed Parvez Rasool fo ...
Leg spinner Pravin Tambe struck the first hat-trick of the season and skipper Shane Watson picked up three wickets to script Rajasthan Royals' 10-run sensational win over Kolkata Knight Riders in their maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) match at their newly adopted home, the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera here Monday. After a 121-run stand between openers Robin Uthappa (65) and Gautam Gambhir (54), Knight Riders suffered a dramatic batting collapse losing six wickets for two runs and could muster only 160 for six in 20 overs while chasing a target of 171. Knight Riders also became the first team in the history of IPL to lose a match after scoring a century-run stand while chasing a target. It seemed Knight Riders had the match in their grasp as they were cruising at 121 for no loss in the 15th over. They needed 49 runs from 35 balls as both Gambhir and Uthappa were going great guns. Gambhir smacked six fours and a six in his 34-ball whirlwind knock while Uthappa hit three sixes and five fours during his 5 ...
IPL 7 Bollywood Superstar Shahrukh Khan owned team Kolkata Knight Riders is one of the most sought after team in IPL. The team did not feature in top four on points table for the first three seasons, but finished fourth in 2011 and went on to lift the title in 2012 under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir. Last Season KKR had poor run and finished their campaign on seventh place. In 2014 auction KKR retained Gautam Gambhir and West Indies spinner Sunil Narine, The team bought back former South African Test Cricketer Jacques Kallis for Rs 5,50,00,000 and potent hitter Yusuf Pathan for Rs 3,25,00,000 using right to match card. KKR packed their squad with prominent Indian players like Robin Uthappa, Umesh Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Karnataka pacer Vinay Kumar. Manvinder Bisla, Debabrata and SS Mondal come in as Wicketkeepers.

IPL 7 | Kolkata Knight Riders | Team preview Former IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders, owned by Shahrukh Khan, is arguably the most widely supported team in IPL. The team, in part due to its owner, is also considered to be the most glamorous team in the league. It was team KKR who kicked-off IPL way back in 2008 courtesy a magnificent innings from Brendon McCullum. Ever since then it is one of the more keenly observed team across the cricketing world. KKR also has a history of making more noise off the field, be it the multiple captains theory in 2009 by the then coach John Buchanan or owner getting involved in an ugly spat with security guards at Wankhede stadium couple of years down the line. Champions in the year 2012 under the tutelage of Trevor Bayliss and Gautam Gambhir the duo will once again be looking to repeat the performance of 2012. Team, on paper, looks quite balanced with mixture of youth and experience. They have some explosive players like Uthappan, Chris Lynn who is little known outside ...
The missing ingredient in yesterday's match was, the skipper of the Kolkata Knight Riders, Gautam Gambhir...as a cricket analyst, it struck me so.
Gautam Gambhir : "SRK is an unbelievable team owner" Gambhir, who leads Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, is all praise for the team’s owner, Shah Rukh Khan. “Shah Rukh is a very warm person. He is warm and loving to youngsters and respectful to elders. We share a common goal, which is to win IPL for KKR,” he adds.
Revealing that the former Pakistan bowler Wasim Akram will be back as the bowling coach of Kolkata Knight Riders for the upcoming IPL season, the franchise’s CEO Venky Mysore has said that they are looking to build a ‘compact and manageable’ squad for the next three seasons. Mysore said: “Akram has told us that his services will be available for the full length of the tournament this time.” KKR have retained only 2 players in Gautam Gambhir and Sunil Narine this time around, ahead of the IPL auctions in February 12 and 13, which means that they will have to build a team from scratch. Mysore said: “We want to keep our squad very compact to make it more manageable. It will be based on need. We will figure out the optimum size, keeping in mind the need for this year and the future.” Mysore did not reveal anything about their bidding strategy when he was asked about it, but he did say this: “I don’t know, so we will wait and see. We have to balance it somehow and try and figure out what is t ...

The season began on 3 April with the defending champions the Kolkata Knight Riders defeating the Delhi Daredevils. Kolkata would then struggle and lose five of their next six matches due to good batting performances only coming from captain Gautam Gambhir and Eoin Morgan.[24] Delhi, who topped the group stage in 2012, had a six-match losing streak due to batting failures apart from three half-centuries from captain Mahela Jayawardene and David Warner.[25] Both Delhi and Kolkata were positioned at the bottom of the points table for the first half of the season. Twice runners-up the Royal Challengers Bangalore won six of their first eight matches with a six-of-six home record. This was credited to good death-over bowling from Vinay Kumar and prolific and quick run-scoring from captain Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers. This included Gayle's score of 175 not out, the highest in Twenty20 cricket.[26] However, their performances were fluctuant. Included was a 130-run victory, two Super Overs and two ...
From the moment Kolkata Knight Riders won the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League till the time they took the field in the sixth edition, any time Gautam Gambhir was asked to reveal the secret to the team’s success, his standard answer would be ‘team bonding’. And yet, poor performances in this edition once again put the spotlight back on issues within the team — synonymous with KKR since the inception of the IPL. Manoj Tiwary, who supposedly had a fall-out with the team management this season and barely did anything of note, said skipper Gambhir could have utilised him better. “Gambhir bhai could have handled me better. I was given a few opportunities at the top of the order, but I wasn’t shown the faith and wasn’t persisted with like a couple of other players in the outfit were,” Tiwary told MAIL TODAY. While Tiwary refused to take names, it is very clear that the management gave a much longer rope to Manvinder Bisla — 255 runs in 14 matches — and Yusuf Pathan — 332 runs in ...

Knight Riders made two changes to their team. They brought in Manoj Tiwary, who missed a few matches due to injury, and Ryan ten Doeschate, who is playing for the first time this season, replacing Debabrata Das and Ryan McLaren. When asked if the team was motivated to end the tournament on a high, Gautam Gambhir said, "playing for KKR is a big enough motivation.

6. Gautam Gambhir of India fetched the highest price of $2.4 million from Kolkata Knight Riders
Gambhir, the rising captain Gautam Gambhir, the most successful captain of IPL5 is now demanded by many to be the captain to lead team India in the Test matches. In the last IPL season Dhoni’s team Chennai Super Kings was defeated by Gambhir’s Kolkata Knight Riders and thus this led Gambhir’s acceptance to a different level. Now there is a constant call for giving the responsibility over to Gambhir. The aggressive nature of Gautam Gambhir has made him highly acceptable as a captain. He gives a secured position to every player and hence makes the team more competent.
n the last six months, MS Dhoni has been under enormous pressure as captain and batsman. Leading India is a tough job and it is going to get even tougher because of the situation the team finds itself in. I believe, though, that not only is Dhoni the only man to lead India in Test cricket, he is still capable of doing the job well. What it will require from him is a change in the way he captains, a recognition that he can't do everything all the time, and the willingness to ask for and accept help. He has had a good run, and will be recognised as India's most successful captain, and he now has a chance to extend it. Other than his leadership qualities, there is the fact that there are no alternatives to Dhoni at this stage. At one point we felt Gautam Gambhir could take over the job. In 2008-09, Gautam showed he could definitely play at the international level and in all formats. His captaincy of Kolkata Knight Riders in the last IPL was excellent. Yet what goes against him today is the fact that he has n ...
On this day in 2011, Gautam Gambhir became the most expensive IPL signing, bought for US$ 2.4 million by the Kolkata Knight Riders. After winning the IPL last year, it's fair to say that money was very well spent!
Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir is a relieved man. After leading his team to their maiden IPL title in Chennai on Sunday, the hard work put in over a period of two draining months has finally borne fruit.
Last week, I got into a partnership. A partnership which goes beyond runs, averages and cricketing victories. This partnership is with the Hindustan Times' You Read, They Learn initiative. Gautam Gambhir writes.
After the controversy surrounding the preparation of the Eden Gardens pitch, the uneasiness between Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and veteran curator Prabir Mukherjee was evident as both decided to look through each other. The Indian players looked relaxed during their training session but the captain and the curator maintained safe distance from each other. While Dhoni along with coach Duncan Fletcher in tow walked to the centre to inspect the track, the man in the eye of storm Mukherjee sat quietly in dug-out outside the boundary ropes atleast 70 metres away from the action centre. After having a good look at the pitch, even Dhoni decided to give Mukherjee a cold shoulder as the 83-year-old was seen chatting with Gautam Gambhir on the sidelines. Gambhir has had cordial relationship with Mukherjee as he has been the Kolkata Knight Riders captain for past two years.

Kolkata Knight Riders, the IPL champions, became the first side to be knocked out of the Champions League Twenty20 when their third game, against Perth Scorchers, was washed out in Durban with only 14 overs having been bowled in the first innings. Knight Riders, who had lost their first two games in the tournament, needed a win to remain in contention for a place in the knockouts. The skies had gone overcast before the toss happened, and Gautam Gambhir, with one eye on the expected rain, chose to bowl on what his counterpart Marcus North called a "bat-first wicket". Knight Riders' bowlers stuck to their goal of restricting Perth Scorchers to a reasonable total till the rains came down. Brett Lee had Herschelle Gibbs caught at cover-point off the fifth ball of the game. Yusuf Pathan, bowling for the first time in the tournament, used the turn and bounce available on a brown Kingsmead surface to get through three tight overs of offspin. The usually free-flowing Shaun Marsh was more circumspect but built Sco ...

Kolkata Knight Riders: The Gautam Gambhir-led side's performance so far in this tournament has been similar to that of the captain.

Having led Kolkata Knight Riders to the IPL triumph, Gautam Gambhir said that he is ready to captain the Indian Test side.
Test Captaincy - Gambhir not an Option Media seems to be an optimum line of work for most of our former cricketers. That doesn't necessarily mean that they are talking sense, with all due respect. For example, take the case of one of India's greatest captains, Sourav Ganguly. While on tour in Australia, he proposed that Virender Sehwag can replace MS Dhoni as Test captain. A month later, when Sehwag was 'rested' from the Asia Cup squad, he spoke about how Dhoni shouldkeep doing his job, but that Virat Kohli should be groomed quickly enough. When the IPL began and Mumbai Indians beat Pune Warriors, he talked up Harbhajan Singh's chances of becoming India captain. And now that Kolkata Knight Riders have won the IPL trophy, obviously then his choice for Test captaincy is Gautam Gambhir. If you are not a die-hard Ganguly fan - and believe it or not there are quite a few of those around - the ambiguity of his statements becomes crystal clear. He is simply playing to the gallery every time a microphone is shove ...

KOLKATA: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took the centre-stage at the celebrations of Kolkata Knight Riders' maiden Indian Premier League title win at the Eden Gardens stadium Tuesday, relegating cricketers to the background. KKR co-owner Shah Rukh, who is also the state's Brand Ambassador, had initially disappointed thousands of Kolkatans by not turning up for the victory parade which started in the morning from Hazra Crossing in the city's south. The Bollywood Badshah let the players hog all the limelight during the roadshow but once he surfaced outside the state secretariat, it became a SRK-Didi show. Outside the secretariat, Banerjee felicitated the team with bouquets of flowers and scarves, while KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir handed over the IPL trophy to Banerjee who held it aloft for the benefit of shutterbugs. Banerjee also donned a cotton sari with purple border, which gelled with the Knight Riders' jersey colours.It was then that Shah Rukh entered t ...

KKR beat defending champions CSK to win maiden IPL title Riding high on Manvinder Bisla's 89 off 48 balls Kolkata Knight Riders thrashed the defending champions to grab their maiden IPL title in a nail biting finish at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday. The visitors acheived 191 runs target with five wickets and two balls to go. Earlier, while chasing 191 runs total, Kolkata Knight Riders suffered a big blow in the last ball of the first over when they lost their skipper Gautam Gambhir. Gambhir was bowled out by Ben Hilfenhaus at the score of two runs. After Gambhir's early departure, Manvinder Bisla took control of the chase and slammed 'quick' fifty off just 27 balls to resurrect KKR's chase. Bisla slammed three sixes and five boundaries to reach this milestone. Experienced Jacques Kallis and Bisla knitted precious partnership for KKR in sttering the team to a comfortable position in chase. Both of them built huge 136 runs partnership to steer out Kolkata to a commanding position in the game before B ...

CHENNAI: Shahrukh Khan performed cartwheels and went on an embracing rampage. Wasim Akram likened the win to Pakistan’s World Cup triumph. Gautam Gambhir shed his stoicism momentarily and allowed his face to crease into a wide grin – and rightly so! After all, the most maligned of IPL sides had finally lifted the biggest prize. Following season after season of humiliation, Kolkata Knight Riders rode on Manvinder Bisla’s swashbuckling 48-ball 89 and held their nerve to carve out a five-wicket win over defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the final of IPL-V on Sunday night. The result stopped Chennai well short in their tracks as they attempted an unlikely hat-trick of IPL titles. Chasing Chennai’s imposing 190, Kolkata were served well by Bisla, who slammed five sixes to vindicate his replacement of Brendon McCullum in the eleven and partnered Jacques Kallis for 136 runs in just 82 balls to power Kolkata ahead, after the visiting team had lost skipper Gautam Gambhir in the first over of the p ...

Speaking ahead of the IPL 5 final, former India skipper Sourav Ganguly on Saturday put his money on Kolkata Knight Riders to win. The 'Prince of Kolkata' rated Gautam Gambhir ahead of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as far as captaincy is concerned and even though the Indian selectors might have lost faith in Gambhir, who was removed from vice-captaincy ahead of the Asia Cup, but Ganguly named him as the skipper to lead his best XI also featuring Dhoni, according to a report on NDTV.com's website. "Gautam Gambhir is the best captain of the IPL. I really liked the way he supported his players. He persisted with Yusuf Pathan as he delivered his best performance (for KKR) in two years," Ganguly said in Kolkata. The Dhoni-led Super Kings who play their third final in as many years may be the favourites on paper but Ganguly put both the teams at par and hoped the Knight Riders would win their first title in five years. "I want to wish both the teams. But I want to see a new champion. I think KKR would win this time," he ...
"When you go on to the field, you do not go there to make friends but you are there to get results in your team's favour. You have to be aggressive on the field. That is how we have won matches and now we are in the final and not to just compete." Gautam Gambhir, the Kolkata Knight Riders captain. "With his action, it is difficult to catch him as to which side he is bowling, whether it is the one that comes in to a right hander or it goes out. The variation he has got and the consistency that he has got in maintaining line and length has been crucial." MS Dhoni on Sunil Narine.

Kolkata Knight Riders can turn things around: Gautam Gambhir
CSK-THE CHAMPION SIDE:::;With Chennai Super Kings needing five runs to win off the final delivery, Rajat Bhatia, who had bowled MS Dhoni and conceded only four from the previous five balls, bowled a full toss. Dwayne Bravo, who had missed a heave off the fifth ball, heaved again, and this time he hit the ball high into the night sky. Kolkata Knight Riders' captain Gautam Gambhir, fielding in the circle, kept his eyes fixed on the ball as it began its descent, and grimaced as he watched it fall agonisingly out of reach of his fielder at long-on, and just over the boundary. The Super Kings were out of the dug out, craning their necks to see where the ball landed, and once they saw it was a match-winning six, there were several streaks of yellow speeding to embrace Bravo. He was standing there with arms aloft, having taken Super Kings to No. 4 with only one league game remaining.

KKR AT ITS BEST:::Gautam Gambhir made Royal Challengers Bangalore pay for dropping him twice, batting with aggression and precision to lead Kolkata Knight Riders to a match-winning total, which the visitors struggled to chase on a traditionally slow pitch at Eden Gardens.
