Shah Rukh Khan is leaving no stone unturned to better the luck of his IPL team, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani claims that SRK has made major changes as per the former’s predictions to bring in good luck.

Jumaani says, “Why else would he remove ‘Kolkata’ from the logo? And why would he discard Sourav Ganguly as the permanent captain?” According to his calculations, “KKR didn’t add up well, but sans ‘Kolkata’, just ‘Knight Riders’ added up perfectly. It totals up to 1, [the number] of the powerful Sun.” Explaining further, Jumaani maintains that Sourav, a number 8, was far from lucky for SRK, because even in the past, the number 8 has been harmful for the him.

“Also, right in the beginning, we had warned that the colour black used for their team jersey wasn’t auspicious. My recommendation is for them to change the black color. Also, Dada should wear a jersey numbered 24,” he says. Joy Bhattacharya of KKR gives a different reason, though.

“The company is called Knight Riders Sports Private Limited, so dropping Kolkata from the logo is for better marketing and communication purposes,” he says.
