April 30 11:14 2015

kkr5New Delhi, Thursday, April 30 – Playing at home conditions is adequate to boost morale of teams. In the ongoing Indian Premier League season 8, cricket lovers leave no stone unturned to catch the action live. When this ‘India ka Tyohaar’ started early this month, people were ready to support their favorite squads.

Kolkata Knight Riders certainly got maximum applauds for being the defending champions. But it has rightly been said that great power comes with great responsibilities. If a comparison is done between KKR’s performance this year and a year ago then it will be found that they had a wobbly start in 2014 but came on track to lift the winner’s title later on. Vice-versa happened in 2015. They began their journey with a win but could not carry the same momentum further. With 3 triumphs and 3 defeats in hand, along with one abandoned match, they hold no. 4 spot in the IPL points table.

Interesting clashes with bat and ball add to the excitement and similar is going to be witnessed in Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings game as these two potential teams are all set to do better than each other in all departments of cricket, be it fielding, batting or bowling. KKR would like to take revenge as CSK inflicted 2-run win on IPL 7 winners a couple of days ago.  Led by Gautam Gambhir, Kolkata Knight Riders would wish that may hard work of teammates pay off today and in further contests as well. On the other hand, CSK are looking forward to keep up the same momentum where team efforts made them taste victory another time.

The kind of patience kept by Mahendra Singh Dhoni is unmatched. His captaincy is the biggest advantage a team could have. If previous records are to be kept in mind then Dhoni’s winning graph is impressive as compared to Gambhir in the face to face encounters between the two captains. The men in yellow shirts are on a strong side for ranking at the top.  Chennai Super Kings have just lost a match. If things move smoothly in their way then they might be the first team to enter in the playoffs.

The defending champions have now come down to no. 4. A victory here let them surpass Royal Challengers Bangalore. Today’s competition is certainly gonna grab eyeballs. Both KKR and CSK are the two-time IPL winners. At the present, inputs will be given to log triumph and build pressure on the contender. If weather conditions remain okay then people will get to see an attention-grabbing contest between these two teams at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Thursday. Let us wait and watch which group proves itself better than the other. One thing is for sure and that is the ‘soon to start’ game will be a mega face-off.
