We all know that Gautam Gambhir the captain of KKR till last year; under his captaincy, KKR had won the title twice.
Sadly, Gambhir is not a part of the Kolkata team this year. He is playing for Delhi Daredevils and is enjoying the same love and fandom even there.
Today’s match between Delhi Daredevils and KKR is being played at Eden Gardens (Kolkata) and Gautam Gambhir has got pretty nostalgic. When he arrived in Kolkata, he could feel the warmth and love of his fans there too.
In Delhi, his fans call him “Gauti Paaji” but in Kolkata, his fans welcomed him by saying “Gauti Da”.
Seeing this response, Gambhir couldn’t stop himself from tweeting about it. Here’s an emotional tweet which came from his side;
The air smells familiar, faces look friendly, from ‘Gauti paaji’ all of a sudden I’ve become ‘Gautam Da’…..am I at my erstwhile home? @DelhiDaredevils @ipl @bcci #DilDilli #Dhadkega pic.twitter.com/WiAvZaYeEe
