“Gautam Gambhir Thank u for the love & leadership my Captain.U r a special man and may Allah always keep & happy…& u should smile a bit more”, SRK tweeted.

He ended as the tournament's highest run-scorer in a total of three seasons before joining his home side Delhi Daredevils in 2018. He spent the majority of his IPL career with the Knight Riders, Gambhir currently is 4th in the list of top-scoring batsmen in the well liked tournament with 4217 runs in 152 matches.
