Chennai: Jubilant Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir on Sunday, said that it was about completing a mission they had embarked upon when the tournament started 54 days back.
"There is only one word that comes to my mind. Mission accomplished. We had strong belief in our team. We knew when the big day will come the guys would deliver. I want to thank our fans back in Kolkata, who had stood by the team during tough situations. We have done it for them," Gambhir said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Asked about Manvinder Bisla's blinder of an innings, the skipper said, "Bisla today showed that what character is all about. I have always maintained that a captain is as good as his team. It's a successful team that makes a successful captain. When I selected Bisla, I knew that we had quality in our dressing room."
