Some excerpts from their conversations:

When Gautam was asked about Sunil Narine’s brilliant performance, he vividly recalled, “I faced Sunil Narine in his International Debut at Indore, and within 7-8 balls, I knew he was going to become a legend of the game, especially in T20 Cricket." Gambhir further shared his belief on teams winning the IPL, stating, "It's not the most talented team that goes on to win the IPL. It's the most courageous team that's willing to fight till the last drop of blood that will go on to win the IPL.”

Gambhir also fondly shared his thoughts on Shah Rukh Khan as KKR's co-owner, "I've said numerous times that he (Shah Rukh Khan) is the best owner I've ever worked with. In the seven years of my captaincy, we didn't even have a seven-minute conversation on cricket. During the bad patch, I was on the verge of dropping myself, so I went and spoke to him, and the only thing he told me was that, till you are here, you are not going to drop yourself."

Manish Pandey, sharing his thoughts on Gautam, said, "The kind of enthusiasm he brings in all of the players is very inspiring, and one can understand the intensity just by looking in his eyes. He backs every player right till the end and supports everyone in a way that you will eventually go out there and give your best for the team" He further spoke about the IPL 2014 final, "It was a very memorable day for me. We were chasing a big score that day and I was in good form so I wanted to go out there and get the win for KKR, glad that  happened."

The episode promises to be an exciting and revealing session as both the Knights also react to their own memes and discuss their enduring love and passion for KKR. Fans won’t want to miss these captivating stories and personal revelations.
