The world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, welcomed Shahrukh Khan’s IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders with a breathtaking LED display, and wished them good luck for this year's IPL.
Kolkata Knight Riders said on Twitter, “Before the fireworks tomorrow, here's the curtain-raiser! We won't stop, on our way to the Top with upwards arrow above…
Thank you @BurjKhalifa for lighting up in #KKR colours. What a welcome to the UAE tonight!”
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Dinesh Karthik said Mumbai Indians (MI) consist of world-class players and "that is why it is good for us to play the four-time champions early on in the IPL."
KKR will open their IPL 13 campaign against the Mumbai Indians at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Wednesday.
The two teams have faced each other 25 times and the Kolkata-based franchise has won only six matches.
"They have a team of world-class players; they are a strong lineup and the number of IPL titles they have won shows that. It's good that we are playing Mumbai early on in the tournament. Every year is a different year. I am sure it will be a great game tomorrow," said Karthik during a virtual press conference on Tuesday.
Karthik also hinted that Shubman Gill and Sunil Narine will be opening the batting for KKR. "Shubman is a quality player. I am sure he will exceed all expectations and it's good to have him. Gill and Narine make a good opening combination," he said.
