I felt I let down the KKR: SRK

Kolkata: KKR team co-owner Shah Rukh Khan on Monday lamented that his 'lack of knowledge' had led to few wrong decisions as the side failed to perform as a unit in the IPL.

However, the Bollywood superstar, hoped that the Knights will "do better" in the third edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

"We did not go about it the right way. I think I let down the side in the sense that I could not make it a cohesive team. I would like to take the responsibility" said the Bollywood super star after attending the KKR's preparatory camp at Kolkata.

KKR has been in controversy much before the IPL season 2 kicked off. It all began with Buchanan"s theory of clipping Ganguly"s wings by projecting his theory of multiple captains, which raised a storm in West Bengal.

"Somewhere down the line, I think a lot of decisions were taken by me or I was atleast part of some of it... Maybe a lot of things with lack of knowledge about how things should be done in a new format like Twenty20," Shah Rukh told reporters. "This season the attempt has been there. Let's forget everything. I want to win IPL to prove to myself that I can win. If I take on something, I will deliver," Shah Rukh asserted.

The Shah Rukh Khan-owned side finished at the bottom of IPL table last year while in the inaugural edition the team had finished second last.

Superstar said he was feeling bad to come to Kolkata as his side had finished second last and last in IPL first and second editions respectively. "I regret losing. With all honesty, I'm saying that I regret for having let down the people of Kolkata. I don't owe them anything and they don't expect anything from me. But for the love they have showered on us, we should have done better. We are a better team from the way we have done so far.

"Hope is always to make Kolkata proud. People here are very warm. I feel little bad as I have a team here, we all belong to the city and we have not been able to do well," he added.
