Gautam Gambhir has reached a captaincy milestone for Kolkata Knight Riders during the Champions League Twenty20 currently in its final week. The former Indian opener has become the second captain to have led in 100 matches in Twenty20, winning 60 and losing 38 (tied one and no-result one).

Gambhir reached the landmark on a day when Kolkata Knight Riders won 13 games in succession, setting an Indian record for most consecutive wins in Twenty20. Bengal had won 12 in-a-row between October 24, 2009 and October 24, 2011. Bengal's 12 wins came in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.(Scorecard|Highlights)

Kolkata Knight Riders produced some special show on Gambhir's 100th match as skipper. Kolkata's 187 for two is their second highest in Champions League Twenty20, next only to the 188 for five versus Titans at Cape Town on October 21, 2012.
