"We are ardent fans of KKR and we will cheer for them along with the audience," he said.

Known for their 'urban folk' beats, Bangla band Bhoomi's bass guitarist Abhijit Ghosh wishes his favourite knights pull off manage another win.

"No doubt KKR is my favourite. They won last year and I wish them all the best. The opening match is very significant."

I will try to make it for some of the matches and cheer for them. It is 'Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo Re' (KKR's theme song, which translated into English, reads "We will do it, we will fight it out, we will win it") for us," Ghosh told IANS.
