Gautam Gambhir: ‘Our next mission is…’: ‘Happy’ Gautam Gambhir sets ambitious goals for Kolkata Knight Riders | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Kolkata Knight Riders mentor Gautam Gambhir has revealed that the franchise’s next mission is to become the most successful team in the Indian Premier League.
Speaking on Sportskeeda, Gambhir expressed satisfaction with KKR’s recent win but emphasized that the journey toward greater success has just begun.
“We are still two trophies away from MI and CSK. I am content today, but we are still not the most successful IPL franchise.To do that, we need to win the tournament three more times, and that will require a lot of effort. Our next mission is to make KKR the most successful team in the IPL. There will be no better feeling than that. But, the journey towards that has only begun,” Gambhir stated.Reflecting on the emotions of winning the IPL for the third time, the former KKR skipper described the experience as indescribable.
“When you head into the IPL, your first thought is to reach the playoffs. When you are close to the playoffs, you think about the top two. When you reach the top two, you want to get to the final, and then you want to win it. At every step, there has been excitement, challenges, and nervousness,” he said.
“Today, sitting at home, I am a very happy man. IPL is such a league where you cannot take any team lightly. It’s such a high-intensity tournament that when you win it, you start feeling really good about yourself,” he added.

Having guided KKR to their third IPL title, Gambhir is now looking forward to spending quality time with his family, describing it as the best way to rejuvenate and relax.
“For me, what’s next is the vacation with my girls and my wife. I am looking forward to it. You get rejuvenated with such breaks, as you don’t have to think about cricket at all. There is nothing better than spending time with family. After playing such a high-intensity tournament and winning it, there can be no better feeling,” Gambhir concluded.
