New Delhi, May 21: Soccer great Harry Kane taking interest in an Indian cricket league, may seem strange to many.

But it is indeed a fact that English soccer icon and Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane has sent Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) his best wishes for the playoffs against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Ahmedabad on Tuesday evening.

"Hey Kolkata Knight Riders, great start to the season. Wishing all the Knights the very best for the remainder of the season. Sending our support from FC Bayern Munich," said the English forward in a video posted by KKR on X.

Kane is coming off a disappointing first season with Bayern Munich even though he had a stellar record throughout. The former Spurs man played 45 games and scored 44 goals alongside 12 assists but in a club like Bayern, trophies are a must and the team endured their first trophy-less season since 2001/02.

The English captain will now look to join up with his national teammates for two friendlies against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Iceland before the 2024 Euros taking place in Germany, a country which has seen his talent on the pitch first hand.

The Knight Riders on the other hand have had a great league stage during the course of the 2024 IPL losing only 3 of 14 games this season which saw them finish first in the league and set up their clash with SRH.

The winner of the first qualifier will get a direct ticket to the finals of the tournament which is scheduled to be played on Sunday, whereas the loser will get one more chance to qualify through the second qualifiers where they will face the winner of the Eliminator between RR and RCB.

Well, considering the popularity, fan following, number of courtiers playing the game or even from the total revenue involved with the sport, cricket is no comparison to soccer.

Soccer definitely has more takers and is a much popular sports. But a soccer legend like Harry Kane sending his best wishes to an Indian franchise before the cash-rich Indian league, indicates IPL and T20 cricket are creating more fan-base and becoming popular fast across the globe.
