Watch: Phil Salt Joins KKR’s IPL 2024 Title Celebrations via Video Call

In a heartwarming moment of sportsmanship and camaraderie, Phil Salt ensured he was part of Kolkata Knight Riders’ IPL 2024 title celebrations, despite his absence, by joining in via video call. Salt, who played a crucial role for KKR during the league stage, had to leave just before the Playoffs to join the England squad for a 4-match T20I series against Pakistan, ahead of the T20 WC 2024.

After securing their third IPL title with a resounding victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday, May 26, KKR’s celebrations were in full swing. The joy was palpable as the team reveled in their success, and to make the moment even more special, Phil Salt joined in through a video call to congratulate and send his best wishes to his teammates.

A small snippet of Salt’s call was shown right after the final, but the full video has now been released by KKR on their social media platforms. In the video, Salt can be seen interacting with the backroom staff and his fellow KKR players, expressing his happiness and pride in the team’s achievement.

The England star had a particularly touching interaction with Varun Chakaravarthy and his son, before moving on to a chat with bowling coach Bharat Arun. Salt’s presence, albeit virtual, added an emotional layer to the celebration, showcasing the strong bonds within the team.

Salt’s partnership with IPL 2024 MVP Sunil Narine at the top of the order was instrumental in KKR’s success this season. Both players provided explosive starts in many matches, setting the foundation for the team’s dominant performances throughout the league stage.

Phil Salt’s video call serves as a testament to the unity and spirit of the Kolkata Knight Riders. It highlights how, regardless of physical presence, the connection and commitment to the team’s success remain strong. As KKR fans and players continue to celebrate their third IPL title, moments like these underline the true essence of teamwork and sportsmanship in cricket.
