MUMBAI: The differences between Kolkata Knight Riders' owner Shah Rukh Khan and its skipper Sourav Ganguly have come out in the open after the team's poor performance against the Rajasthan Royals cost them their chance to feature in the top four teams.

Sourav Ganguly spoke to Times Now and said, "I have seen the reports and I will clarify his stand in the controversy later." Refusing to comment on the issue and not denying any such reports could hint at a possible rift between the two. However, owner Shah Rukh Khan has not reacted to reports over possible rift between the two.

Has the peace in the Kolkata Knight Riders' camp been shattered? Are 'Dada' Sourav Ganguly and 'Badshah' Shah Rukh Khan not getting along with each other anymore? Yes, say insiders. ( Watch )

The two power centres in the Kolkata team are not seeing eye to eye on many issues. The problem apparently started with the entertainment tax that Shah Rukh Khan is paying for the matches being played at the Eden Gardens.

The Bollywood star wanted Ganguly to speak to West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya and try and get it abolished. The Kolkata captain, who is known to be close to the CM, has refused to oblige, at least till now.

Interestingly, it is learnt that Eden Gardens is the only stadium where an IPL team is paying entertainment tax. That is not all though. The bigger bone of contention is KKR's sudden dip in form and its poor performance in the last few games, harming their semifinal chances. Shah Rukh, sources say, is not too happy with this change of fortunes although he hasn't expressed his feelings openly. Ganguly, on the other hand, has not been too pleased with the team composition right from the beginning. The differences surfaced during the auction itself, with Sourav wanting more batsmen while the team management was more keen on bowlers.

The problems magnified when coach John Buchanan was given more powers than the captain himself. To add fuel to the fire, Shah Rukh announced that the coach will take all the decisions for the team next year onwards, upsetting Ganguly in the bargain.

Ganguly has apparently already begun showing his discontent: he preferred to go back home after the last match rather than stay back for a press conference to annouce Knight Riders' tie-up with a website. Said an insider, who was present at the event, "Shah Rukh did pass some caustic remarks saying, 'I thank all my teammates for being at the press conference but who can forget Dada who is missing from the event'."

The duo also had a spat when Khan was keen that his team fielded first in the last game against Chennai; Ganguly, however, preferred to bat first. Eventually, the Knight Riders lost by 3 runs on Duckworth-Lewis following a rain interruption.

So what can we do about it now?

Shall we try to convince SRK and Dada to kiss kiss hug hug and make friends again?

Are you sure that was for the sake of oil only and that they didnt derive any personal pleasure out of the act?

lol u joker!!

im getting annoyed with SRK, u dont mix sport and bollywood movies, the Kolkata website is more of a SRK fan club, than a Kolkata Knight Riders fan club....

having said that, i dunno why Dada is getting in a huff about team selection, the bastman arent being picked, becoz of international duty or injury (Gayle) can't really blame SRK for that. Though, SRK should realise, depriving a captain like Saurav of responsibilities and giving it to Buchanan instead, can mean the job oesnt get done properly. He should allow Dada and Buchanan equal responsibility and not get involved.

I was about to have my dinner.
This picture now killed my appetite.

I remember watching a Doco on National Geography once where the guy was telling that there are gay monkeys.

I just laughed it off.
Now looks like that guy was onto something.

Ganguly's inning today was as good as the one that he played at the Independence Cup in Dhaka back in '98. The selectors should burn.

Remind me why every discussion on this forum ends with homosexuality.

SRK said in a TV interview earlier, when there were reports of problem in B'lore side, that he would keep SG for 100 years as a captain. What's the prob now? I think that's just out of frustration of not reaching Semis. SRK is cleaver enough to make things up.
