MUMBAI – Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has refuted the news regarding any suggested match between Peshawar Zalmi and its team here on Thursday.
The clarification of Shah Rukh Khan’s co-owned team came after media reports in Pakistan implied that Shah Rukh made a telephone call to Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi and floated the idea of a match between the two teams at a neutral venue.
KKR through its verified Twitter account has claimed that no communication in this regard ever happened and KKR would not be playing any unauthorized match.
KKR won't be playing any unauthorized games/leagues as some false reports are claiming.
No such communication happened from our end.
