Furious fans force Shah Rukh U-turn on Sourav Ganguly
It remains unclear what forced the Kolkata Knight Riders' owner to change his stance from 'drop Ganguly' to 'retain Ganguly'.
Ganguly, who led KKR in the last edition, was left red-faced as none of the 10 franchisees showed interest in buying him at the two-day auction in Bangalore.
"I would love it, I would love Sourav to be an integral part. You don't have a team in Kolkata without him. So, I will speak to Dada when I get back," Shah Rukh said.
The fans of Ganguly yesterday burnt Khan's effigies in Kolkata protesting his exclusion from the team.
