Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders are running a Twitter campaign that showcases what their players are capable of by presenting them in their possible Bollywood avatars.

The purple and gold squad posted a series of images that celebrated their team's on-field prowess with the hashtag #Bollywoodknights.

Here's Manish Pandey in his 'Dabbang' avatar. Manish takes on the role of 'Rohinhood Pandey, essayed by Salman Khan in the film.

Yusuf Pathan is Bhaijaan... not Bajrangi though. And while he may not get Munni home, KKR is confident he will bring the trophy back home.

Pacer Morne Morkel replaces Shah Rukh Khan in Chennai Express and it's now the 'Morne Express'. And why not after all the Knight Rider's top speed is 151 kmph -- way more than that of Chennai Express, which is 110 kmph.

Brad Hogg is back and like 'Gabbar' is scaring opposition into submission with his 'doosra'.

KKR also has 'Gunday' in their team and they are their openers Gauatam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa.

KKR are currently fourth on the points table with six wins from the ten games they have played.
