Rajasthan Royals skipper Shane Warne had some words of consolation for Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan after his Indian Premier League (IPL)team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) failed to make it to the semi-finals for the third year in a row.
Warne wrote on social networking site Twitter: "Hey buddy you're a champion and your charisma is something (that) I'm sure inspires a lot of people. Hang in there, sport is cruel sometimes."
"Congrats the way you conduct yourself, I know it's tough re (regarding) KKR... I am feeling for you, but it's a pleasure to live the journey of life," Warne tweeted.
Shah Rukh, on the same forum, had apologised for KKR's failure.
"Also cos (because) lots of ppl (people) think I am sad etc. I am not...just disappointed. That too has waned already. New day...new way. v get wot v work for (We get what we work for). Being successful does not mean that one doesn't react to bad days. Being successful means reacting and then acting upon changing bad days," he wrote.
"Those who don't have a reaction to losses get used to it. I always...say...if you hate losing enuff (enough)...you will surely win. End of sermon ha ha," he added.
On a more serious note he wrote: "Someone just sent a mathematical (ill-informed) profit made by KKR. To correct u...Not invested million dollars, just some priceless emotions in KKR."
