Will ask our CM Mamata Banerjee to talk to Shah Rukh Khan: Manoj Tiwari

Kolkata Knight Riders had a short IPL season in 2022, where they failed to break into the top four after claiming the runners-up spot in the 2021 edition. KKR retained most of their key players but things did not go according to plan. After making an impressive start to the season, KKR failed in consecutive matches and eventually finished sixth in the points table. The team management was criticized for various reasons. The biggest criticism was made by the former KKR player and the current Sports Minister of West Bengal. Manoj Tiwari, The Bengal cricketer feels that KKR need to pick local players in their team and is ready to talk to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee about the same.

In a recent conversation with Sports Tak, Manoj said, “Definitely I would like to see a change. I always say that there should be a lot of players (from Bengal in KKR). So my only question is whether Bengal’s Players can play. For those other teams which are in regular playing XI, why can’t they play here. So this question mark always remains on the management. They never talk openly. They keep quiet. , and that question mark is always on them.”

Tiwary criticized the KKR team management for not giving enough opportunities to the local players. There was not a single player in the Kolkata team who played for West Bengal at the domestic level. There are very few players from Bengal who have played for the Kolkata franchise. The list includes Sourav Ganguly, Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Mohammed Shami, Wriddhiman Saha and Tiwari himself.

“Local players inspire kids in the stadium. Fans will want to support their local players. They will always support their team, but when they see that there is a local player on the team, they will take that feeling with them. I will ask our honorable Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to speak with Shah Rukh Khan. He is the brand ambassador of West Bengal. We will see what happens after that,” Manoj Tiwari said.
