After fuming over protests over ill-treatment to Sourav Ganguly, Kolkata Knight Riders’ co-owner Shah Rukh Khan breaks his silence. He said Ganguly is the main man of his team.

In an interview to The Telegraph, King Khan said, "Sourav is our main man. No idea or decision will be taken without Dada's consent and agreement. And the whole KKR respects and loves him no end. So, there is no reason to overreact by any of us right now," said Shah Rukh.

Making clarifications, Shah Rukh said they were contemplating multiple captaincy theory last year also.

"Last year, we had contemplated having matches with multiple captains and inputs from them. Twenty20 is a new format and new ideas should be tried," clarified King Khan.

Jumping to Buchanan’s defence, the actor said John Buchanan is not Greg Chappell... the comparison is not fair. Both John and Sourav are our mainstays and all decisions will be taken in tandem with them.
