Kolkata: With a packed Eden Gardens cheering their favourite son Sourav Ganguly, Kolkata Knight Riders' skipper Gautam Gambhir Saturday said it was like playing an away match.
"He is a legend of the game. The contribution he has made to the sport both internationally and domestically is immense and it is natural for him to command the respect he gets. It was like playing an away game for us," Gambhir said at the post-match press conference.
Gambhir later said the crowd was behind KKR as well. "It was a 50:50 crowd and I thank them for being with us."
