Shah Rukh Khan hits back at Gavaskar for criticizing Buchanan

Bollywood actor and Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan on Sunday slammed former Indian cricket captain Sunil Gavaskar for criticizing John Buchanan.

Mumbai, Apr 5 : Bollywood actor and Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan on Sunday slammed former Indian cricket captain Sunil Gavaskar for criticizing John Buchanan.

Buchanan, who is the manager of Kolkata Knight Riders, had suggested the four captain theory for the second season of the Indian Premier League (IPL)."I have great respect for Gavaskar. I have grown up enjoying his performance. I respect him too much. I would like to say that please give the multiple-captain theory a breathing space to try now. If we fail we can always go back to the traditional way," Khan said at a media conference here.

Gavaskar had recently criticised Buchanan's theory saying too much importance is being accorded to the Australian, who is a failed first-class cricketer and is only trying to get lucrative jobs for his Queensland pals.

Shah Rukh also expressed hope that his team would perform much better than last year.

"All our players like Chris Gayle, Brendon McCullum, Sourav Ganguly, Brad Hodge, Ajantha Mendis, Ishant Sharma, Mashrafe Mortaza are available," he added.
