After demolishing Mumbai Indians in Kolkata, DK and his Knights' next mission was to conquer Mohali and keep their playoff hopes alive till they meet MI in Mumbai.
KKR registered a rather easy win over the home side. It was a special win for KKR and more so for the local boy and our hero, Shubman Gill.
Here's how the Twitter world reacted:
From Delhi Capitals’ Camp
Loved the innings from @RealShubmanGill and the most important thing apart from the elegance and maturity that he displayed was that he was there till the end, wonderful signs for future of Indian Cricket #KXIPvKKR— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) May 3, 2019

He’ll go far
Emphatic, easy win for #KKR. And many positives too, none more than the composure of Shubman Gill. He is talented, true, but it is his composure that will take him far— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) May 3, 2019
Haha! You both did.
Thank you @iamsrk sir! 🙏🏻 Papa definitely stole the show 😁 #blessed https://t.co/CkRoNyKzK7— Shubman Gill (@RealShubmanGill) May 4, 2019
We are all so proud and happy for him
So happy that @KKRiders are allowing Shubman Gill to play his role at the top of the innings. 3 fifties in 4 innings opening the batting. Even more moving is that his mom has travelled to watch her son. She must be proud of the man he is growing into👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 to the Gill family.— ian bishop (@irbishi) May 3, 2019
