Kolkata, April 3: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vice-captain Suryakumar Yadav on Monday said the two-time champions will go all out this time to add a third star on the jersey by bringing the Indian Premier League (IPL) trophy home.
Usually, teams have stars on top of their badge or crest to depict the number of titles they have won.
The winners of the IPL in 2012 and 2014, KKR lost to eventual champions Sunrisers Hyderabad in the elimitor last year by 22 runs. Yadav maged just eight in that game as the Knights failed to chase down 162 posted by David Warner and co.
“There is not point thinking about last year. We have moved on and are thinking about this season,” Yadav, who played a match-winning knock of 60 against Rising Pune Supergiant in the last edition, told reporters on the sidelines of a city jewellery company’s tie-up with the purple brigade. “We have two stars on our shirt and hopefully will add a third giving you all reason to celebrate,” the 26-year-old Mumbai lad added.
