Kolkata Knight Riders owner and Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan apologized to fans of his franchise after the team faced an embarrassing defeat on Tuesday against defending champions Mumbai Indians in Chennai's MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Despite having the upper hand in the game throughout the initial overs, KKR lost the match after subsequent wickets in the middle order. The result came as a shock to several cricket viewers, who claimed to have witnessed one of the most bizarre games of IPL. Shah Rukh Khan took to his official social media handle to apologize to fans of KKR for the team's underwhelming performance. "Disappointing performance. to say the least @KKRiders apologies to all the fans!" SRK had tweeted. Responding to the post, KKR all-rounder Andre Russell said during the post-match press conference, "Yeah, I support that tweet but at the end of the day the game of cricket… you are not sure until it's over. I think we are still confident, we still played some good cricket and I am proud of the boys. You know, we are definitely disappointed but it's not the end of the world, it's only the second game and we are going to learn from it."

"I just think it's a game of cricket. I have played hundreds of T20 games and I have seen games where teams cruise in on the driver's seat and then suddenly lose a few wickets, and that's what happened tonight. So, we definitely have to learn from this. We will look to make sure that who's in, stays in and once we learn from all these mistakes we will definitely do better. I have trust and confidence in the boys," he added.
