However, after videos going around on social media, netizens not only slammed Goneka but advised him to learn from the leadership skills of Shah Rukh Khan, the co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders.

Here are few reactions:

A netizens commented, “Shame on Goenka.. He has to learn from SRK and other team owners..”

Another posted a comparative video, saying, “SRK has gone through many ups and downs in his life and knows how to handle losses and hence mature enough…more than Goenka!”

Some wrote, “Match lost even after score 261 . Still our #SRK sir encouraging our players . That's why we call him King by hearts 💖. No one even close to him. The way he behave ❣️”

"KKR had worse humiliation season. SRK and Ganguly were enemies at one point. But still Neither SRK or another KKR owner publicly did this with Ganguly. That's why we have won 3 trophies and Goenka struggles to win 1 with 2 different teams now in ipl," a social media user wrote.

Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Varun Chakravarthy on Friday said Shah Rukh Khan has made a ‘huge impact’ with his motivational speeches when the chips were down in the ongoing IPL, reported news agency PTI. 

"SRK has been present in almost all matches in Kolkata. Even in the match where we didn't do well, he came to the dressing room and spoke to every player for an hour and hugged everyone," Chakravarthy said referring to the PBKS match.

“He said 'it's just a match, cricket is changing, just try to be better in the next match'. This time, I see a massive difference because the way he has been very understanding, he's been very approachable, it has made a huge impact. I also got to meet him for the first time.”
