Kolkata Knight Riders are still celebrating their capture of the Indian Premier League for the first time.
Knight Riders won the tournament on Sunday after completing an exciting five-wicket win over two-time defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the final.
Part of their success was due to the performances of Trinidadian off-spinner Sunil Narine, who won the MVP award.
Yesterday the team was accorded a reception at the Eden Gardens Stadium that attracted thousands of fans.
