“Of course we are favourites in the Champions League after having won the IPL. Everyone will expect us to win the tournament,” said Tiwary.
The right-hander, who fashioned KKR’s win in the final against Chennai Super Kings Sunday with a boundary, praised the team’s new player recruits and collective spirit for the success.
“Players like Sunil Narine, Jacques Kallis and Yusuf Pathan were taken in as they had done well for other franchises. We had a very good team combination and that was crucial,” he said.
