Not a ‘lifting’ experience

CENTURION: As skipper Brendon McCullum put it once, something or the other keeps going haywire for Kolkata Knight Riders.

Savouring its first win in nine IPL matches, some of the team members, including former skipper Sourav Ganguly, were stuck in a lift for more than 15 minutes. A technical snag left a few members of the side inside the hotel lift even as coach John Buchanan captured the anxious moments on a handy cam. The team, owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, has nothing but pride to play for in the remainder of the Twenty20 event.
