Bollywood superstar and Kolkata co-owner Shah Rukh Khan apologised to fans after his team suffered a humiliating 102-run defeat at the hands of Mumbai at Eden Gardens, on Wednesday. 

SRK with actress Juhi Chawla had come to Eden Gardens to watch Kolkata's game, yesterday.

Just after their team lost, SRK took to Twitter and wrote an apologetic message to all Kolkata fans. 

"Sports is about the spirit and wins/losses don't reflect that. But tonight as the 'Boss' I need to apologise to the fans for the lack of spirit," he wrote.

The win took Rohit Sharma's team to level on points with Kolkata (10 points from 11 games) and fourth in the points table, courtesy to a better net run rate.

Kolkata lost to the same opponents twice in the space of three days, and were dropped to the fifth spot in the league table.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan scored a whirlwind 21-ball 62 to help Mumbai set a mammoth target of 211 runs.

The Dinesh Karthik-led side will next face Punjab on Saturday.
