Mumbai, Aug 30(ANI): Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders' hunt for a new coach continues as former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram met team co-owner Shahrukh Khan at his residence in Mumbai on Sunday.

Akram is one of the leading contenders for the job, while earlier in the day, former India coach Sandip Patil had met Shahrukh.

It is also believed that former India coach John Wright will also take part in franchise's final round of interviews, and will make a presentation to Shahrukh.

Lalchand Rajput, Ashok Malhotra, Richard Pybus and Michael Bevan have already met the owner.

Akram is known to be close to prospect Knight Riders captain Sourav Ganguly and it is said that a good rapport between the two may seal the deal for Akram. (ANI)
