Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most enthusiastic IPL franchise owners. He lives the dream with his team and follows their game passionately. Their win and lose affects Shah Rukh like his players and we have felt it on social media through his posts.

The King of Bollywood was overjoyed after Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) qualified for the playoffs with a 5-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

Opting to bat, hosts SRH were restricted to 172 for nine after a fiery start at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. In reply, KKR openers Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine's smashed 52 runs in 3.4 overs.

Once again Lynn showed the responsibility and scored 55 off 43 balls with three sixes and four boundaries, Narine smashed 29 in just 10 balls to give his team a push in the chase. Robin Uthappa, who got a life early in his innings, contributed 45 off 34 balls, as KKR secured the third position in the points table. 

For Sunrisers, Shikhar Dhawan was the top scorer with 50 off 39 balls, while skipper Kane Williamson added 36 in just 17, hitting three sixes.

Shah Rukh couldn't control his excitement and took Twitter to express his emotions. "Been awake 24hrs to see these smiles. Thx @DineshKarthik @prasidh43 (well done young man) @robbieuthappa ( v have to exercise 2gether) @lynny50 (wow mate) & @SunilPNarine74 is...Sunil. Very happy cant sleep now!!", he wrote.
