Brett Lee calls India his second home. And now, he has found a home within that home in the City of Joy. The fast bowler from New South Wales proudly calls himself a Kolkata Knight Rider. In his second year with the team, Lee has helped KKR win the IPL for the people of Kolkata who have stood by their Knights in glory and defeat.
After KKR’s stunning five-wicket win over the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings, in the final, Lee spoke exclusively to iplt20.com about what this victory means to KKR fans and how every single member of the squad has contributed towards it.
Finally, the trophy is in KKR’s hands.
It has come to Kolkata. What a great team performance throughout the whole season! It’s not [just] the 11 guys who were playing tonight that deserve the credit. It’s all the squad members; the support staff and every single person did their bit. We have a wonderful coach, and what a fantastic win it was! How confident was the team of chasing down the mammoth 191?
We knew if [we] just hold onto our nerve, there would be a chance to chase it down. It was an amazing effort; wonderful partnership from Jacques Kallis and Manvinder Bisla. It just feels very sweet. What was the moment of the tournament?
The flick from Manoj Tiwary to win the game was the moment of the tournament.
A word on Gautam Gambhir’s captaincy.
