    SRK finally fires John Buchanan..!!

    After two dismal seasons and a number of controversies, the Shah Rukh-

    owned cricket franchise Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), on Wednesday,
    fired its head coach, John Buchanan.

    It took KKR’s owners a little more than three weeks after the end of the second edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) to make the decision. The

    instructions to let go off Mr Buchanan came from Mr Khan through an email

    communiqué. The actor is in the US where he is shooting for his next film. Wednesday was the Australian’s last day with the team.

    A spokesperson for KKR confirmed the development when contacted by ET. The team is said to be looking for a new head coach apart from making other

    changes. It is gathered that Andrew Leipus, the team’s physiotherapist,

    Matthew Mott, the assistant head coach and Adrian Le Roux who is the team’s trainer could also be eased out.

    Mr Buchanan’s stint with KKR was controversial, especially in the second

    season of the IPL. His idea of having multiple captains came in for criticism from experts. KKR’s captain Sourav Ganguly was replaced by Brendon

    McCullum, which did not go down well with the former Indian captain’s fans in

    Kolkata. In the first IPL, KKR finished sixth (eight teams participated) while in

    the second edition, it was the worst- performing team with three wins out of 14 matches.

    Interestingly, with all the controversies and an indifferent performance, KKR

    has been the most-valued team of the IPL with a brand value of $42.1 million, according to UK-based consultancy Brand Finance.

    The KKR franchise was bought for $75 million by SRK, Jai Mehta and Juhi

    Chawla. It was one of the only two teams that turned in a profit in the first

    season of the IPL. The team has well-known names like Ricky Ponting,

    Brendon McCullum, Sourav Ganguly and Ishant Sharma apart from a top

    notch support staff making it the one of the most expensive franchises to run

    with a cash outgo of anywhere between Rs 60-75 crore each season.
