Shah Rukh asks Ganguly to sign up Gilchrist for Kolkata outfit

Cricket Australia is yet to give its green signal to Adam Gilchrist but the retiring Australian stumper-bat already looks a hot property with Bollywood czar Shah Rukh Khan, proud owner of the Kolkata franchise of the Indian Premier League, chasing his signature.

According to reports, Shah Rukh has asked Sourav Ganguly, the Prince of Kolkata, to rope in Gilchrist for the Twenty20 extravaganza starting on April 18.

IPL Governing Council chairman Lalit Modi, meanwhile, has claimed that CA has cleared Gilly for the event.

Modi said
Gilchrist will play. He has already got a no objection certificate from the Australian board.
