KKR vs RR, IPL 2024: I always kept believing, says Buttler after heroic hundred

SRK gave a motivational speech to his teammates.

In a video shared by KKR's official handle, Shah Rukh stood in the dressing room and told players, "There are days in our lives, in sports especially when we don't deserve to lose. And there are days also when we don't deserve to win. But days are like that, which turns things around. I think today we didn't deserve to lose. All of us played extremely well. We have to be very, very proud of ourselves. Please don't feel sad or down. Feel as happy as we feel whenever we come to the changing room and we are on a high so maintain the high."

SRK added, "The main thing is the energy in all of us. I think we have great energy on the field, we have lovely energy here and personally, also, everybody is bonding together. So please continue so. All the best. Honestly, it was a very proud day, the way we all played. I think all of us, I won't even take individual names, that's been taken. GG (Gautam Gambhir), don't feel down. We would all be bouncing back. It's God's plan for today,"

SRK ended, "As Rinku says, I think this is what we would like then. We'll be back with more and better god's plans. Thank you everyone, God bless you all."
