As the Shreyas Iyer-led team lifted their third IPL trophy, fans hailed coach Gautam Gambhir, whose strategic brilliance shone through in just one year as the team's mentor.

The victory echoes KKR's maiden victory in 2012 at the same venue, where Gambhir had initially established his reputation as a shrewd leader. Now, twelve years later, Gambhir's behind-the-scenes acumen has guided KKR to another championship. Fans couldn't help but cheer for the fierce leader, known for his aggressive playing style and mentoring prowess.

Naturally, social media was full of memes celebrating Gambhir, with one fan dubbing him 'GOATam Gambhir' and many others joining in the fun.
