Shah Rukh Khan recently at the Nokia - Kolkata Knight Riders tie up press conference held in Mumbai took on Sunil Gavaskar straight on. Apparently the cricket legend Gavaskar had criticized KKR coach John Buchanan over their team strategies including the possibility of multiple captains for the team.
When asked about his reaction over Gavaskar's comments in his column in one of the leading publication about KKR, King Khan in his typical sarcastic style replied, ''I have tremendous respect for Mr. Sunil Gavaskar. He was a great player of his times. But T20 is a new type of game. Since he hasn't ever played this game he has no right to comment on it. If he is still so interested then he should buy an IPL team for himself and implement his game tactics. We know what is good for us and good for cricket.''
This comment by SRK reminds us of his comments on Bollywood's living legend Amitabh Bachchan that he had made when he had taken up as host for the popular show Kaun Banega Crorepati's 3rd season which Big B had hosted earlier.
Well now it would be really interesting to see how the original Little Master Sunil Gavaskar hits back the bouncer thrown by SRK.
