Shubman Gill Jokes with Ed Sheeran About KKR’s Retention Decision, Wants SRK to Explain

In an unexpected blend of cricket, music, and entertainment, Shubman Gill, the rising star of Indian cricket and the current captain of the Gujarat Titans, brought up his past association with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a fun interaction with global music icon Ed Sheeran. The moment became even more memorable with the presence of popular YouTuber Tanmay Bhat, adding a touch of humor to the conversation.

Gill, who was a key player for KKR, especially highlighted during the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) where KKR reached the finals, experienced a surprising turn in his career when he was released by the franchise ahead of the mega auction the following year. This move left fans and followers of the sport in a state of bewilderment, questioning the strategy behind letting go of such a promising talent.

“I am going to Shahrukh’s house tonight,” said Sheeran, unaware of the cricketing connection. “I used to play for his team,” Gill quickly responded, prompting a surprised reaction from Sheeran. “Did you? He has a team!” exclaimed the singer. Tanmay Bhat, known for his quick wit, added, “Yes, Kolkata Knight Riders,” ensuring Sheeran was up to speed. Gill’s playful request, “Ask him why they did not retain me,” led to a burst of laughter among the trio, highlighting the camaraderie and light-heartedness of the conversation.

This unusual yet amusing exchange not only showcased the crossover appeal of cricket among international celebrities but also highlighted the global reach of the IPL and its stars. Gill’s cheeky comment to Sheeran about SRK and KKR has added a delightful twist to the narrative of cricketing transfers, showcasing the lighter side of the sport’s behind-the-scenes dynamics.
