Not only KKR emerged as one of the strongest sides since then but also won two Indian Premier League titles in 2012 and 2014. And after such a glorious journey throughout, Gautam is all set to play his hundredth match for KKR as a skipper against the Rising Pune Supergiant in Pune on April 26.

The video was shared with a caption which said,”O Captain, My Captain! Watch what Gautam Gambhir‘s teammates had to say on their skipper’s 100th appearance for KKR in IPL. Watch the full video here.”

They also have the best run rate than all other teams which is +1.177. The KKR kickstarted their tournament with a blast against the Gujrat Lions where they won the game without losing a single wicket.

However, this side exhibited their best performance in their last gainst the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Eden Gardens when despite getting all-out for 131 runs in the first innings, the Kolkata bowling attack bundled the Bangalore side within 49 runs and 57 balls and forced them to set a weird record of putting lowest team total ever in IPLs.

However, the skipper was not much satisfied with that performance but they are determined enough to continue the carnage of victory in the forthcoming games and reach the ultimate destination, i.e the finale.
