Each and everyone involved with KKR since the beginning has had a journey worth a mention. I am thrilled to share this journey of tears, sorrow, strength and victory with everyone. On behalf of Juhi, Jay and myself, I would like to thank the different players from all seasons of IPL, the coaches, physicians, the management and everyone else who has been a part of this wonderful team for doing what they have done over the years. I also thank the very loyal fans who have supported us and loved us no matter what. And special thanks to Discovery for getting our story across to the people around the world."
