The former KKR captain had motivated everyone to play for May 26, the day of the IPL finals. "One thing I absolutely believe in is giving all the freedom to the players. That is something very important. So people who have played with me, know one thing, that everyone in this group will be treated equally," he had said.

"There's no senior/junior. No domestic/international because we have got one mission and that is to win the IPL. So, everyone needs to follow that one simple path. On 26th May, we should be there, giving everything possible. And it starts from today," the former KKR skipper had said.
