Gautam Gambhir takes a dig at Sanjeev Goenka and Parth Jindal amid Controversy around KL Rahul

Gautam Gambhir is inarguably one of the biggest legends in the history of IPL. During his playing days, Gambhir represented Delhi Daredevils, and Kolkata Knight Riders and then returned to Delhi Capitals in his last year. After ending his playing career he took up mentoring and ended his last season with the Delhi Capitals in the same role before moving to Lucknow Super Giants in 2022 as the mentor of the team.

After spending two years with the Lucknow-based franchise and taking the team to the playoffs on both occasions he moved back to Kolkata Knight Riders for the 2024 season. Now suddenly the former KKR captain has come up with a statement which might seem like an indirect dig at the owner of LSG, Sanjeev Goenka.

Sanjeev Goenka was recently surrounded by controversies after the embarrassing loss of LSG against SRH. The LSG owner was caught in cameras in what seemed like ugly altercations with the captain of LSG, KL Rahul.

What did Gautam Gambhir Say? 

Though, Gautam Gambhir did not comment directly on the situation he made an indirect comment. On being asked in a Sportskeeda interview who his favourite owner is, he mentioned Shah Rukh Khan. He said, “Shah Rukh Khan is the best owner I’ve ever worked with. He never interferes in cricketing matters in the KKR team. He trusts me and backs my decisions”.

It is a well-known fact that Gautam Gambhir was a very important part of Lucknow Super Giants and played a pivotal role for the team in the first two seasons taking the team to playoffs on both occasions. However, after the team’s defeat in Eliminator of IPL 2023, there was allegedly some sort of rift between the owner and Gambhir. He soon after stepped off from his position citing the reason for the Lok Sabha elections in 2024. Things took an interesting turn when he soon after joined Kolkata Knight Riders surprising everyone with his decisions.
