Shahrukh Khan, the owner of IPL team KKR, was optimistic just like a lot of Indian fans and wanted a medal to come back home. After the men’s team lost 5-2 against Belgium in the semis and can still win a Bronze, the hopes are now on the Indian women.
Hopefully, they can deliver in their upcoming match against Argentina and have the chance of winning GOLD. That is the ambition of the nation right now and everyone will be glued to their screens. Hopefully, they can find it in themselves to do what they did in the last match, produce another miracle.
The enthusiasm and hard work of the players has been already visible on the pitch. The Indian fans are really proud and so is Shahrukh Khan, as showcased by his recent Tweet. Let’s wait and watch if they can make it count!!
