Lucknow's mentor, former India cricketer, Gautam Gambhir was silent and not showing any emotions as such through Lucknow' epic run chase against the defending champions.

But when his team tied the scores and it was clear they were going to win, Gambhir was all pumped up and euphoric.

Gambhir's interaction with CSK captain and Gambhir's former India teammate, MS Dhoni, after the match was also talked about quite a bit and discussed by the fans.
