Though a native of Delhi, Gautam Gambhir has a long history of Bengali culture. Everyone knows how. Gambhir played 7 seasons in West Bengal team Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. It was under his leadership that Kolkata won the IPL twice (2012 and 2014).

After 7 years, Gambhir returned to Kolkata again. This time he is in charge of the team's consultant. Today, on the first day of the Bengali New Year (Paila Baishakh), Kolkata will play at their home ground, Eden Gardens. Gambhir represented Kolkata in this pre-match press conference against Lucknow Super Giants. After answering all the complicated questions of the journalists there, he also gave them a 'surprise'. He fed sweets to the journalists present on the occasion of Bengali New Year.

After the press conference last night, when the journalists were about to leave, Gambhir said to them, 'Tomorrow (today) is New Year. So we bring you sweets. Feel free to eat sweets and add some calories.' Kolkata Knight Riders posted the video of Gambhir's moment on social media. Wrote, 'Sweet face with Gautam Gambhir.' Gambhir's hospitality with journalists has won the hearts of many.

Even though the match will be played at Kolkata's Eden Gardens, Lucknow will also get the feel of playing at home. Because Lucknow owner Sanjeev Goenka is a Bengali billionaire. Apart from Lucknow, he also owns the famous football club Mohan Bagan in Kolkata.

Today, Lucknow teamed up with Mohan Bagan in the green and maroon jersey to get the support of the Kolkata crowd at the Eden Gardens. Lucknow's success so far against Kolkata at Eden is also 100%. Lucknow have won 3 of the previous 3 matches. Gambhir was Lucknow's mentor in those matches. Now we have to wait for at least two and a half hours to know if Kolkata can beat Lucknow in Eden by getting Gambhir back.

Batting after losing the toss, Lucknow scored 60 runs in 8 overs, losing 2 wickets till writing this report.
