What a great last match in which KKR faced the Lions. That was the heart broken match for the KKR fans because lost that match in their home ground Eden Garden. Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bowlers as they take on a menacing Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batting line-up in the Indian Premier League (IPL), in Kolkata on Sunday.
On a batting beauty at the Eden Gardens, KKR will face the difficult task of stopping a back-in-form Chris Gayle and the ever deadly player Virat Kohli. Having started off with four wins out of the five matches, Kolkata wilted against Suresh Raina’s assault to lose their 1st match at home ground on Friday as they brace for a bigger challenger when they face the resurgent RCB, in a second match in three days.
For a team that has shown great consistency in both batting and bowling section, the timing of the loss will be irritating for Gautam Gambhir’s players and KKR fans. It has come at a time when most of the IPL teams, including the low team Gujarat Lions at IPL points table, have started to look up while for KKR the slide has started, down to 2nd place in the crucial mid of IPL.
Struggling to find their beat, the Kohli brigade has finally found their expression right with the familiar destruction of Gayle. Started with Kohli at the opening spot, Gayle made 77 off 38 balls and managed for his first half century in 17 matches and went on to become the only batsman to reach at10,000 runs in the T20 format. Gayle and Kohli put together 122 runs in 76 balls in that match off against KKR. The Shakib-Al-Hasan appearance in that match against the Gujarat Lions didn’t work as he conceded 10.33 runs per over.
Gujarat Lions chased down the big total of 188 runs with 10 balls remaining in a four-wicket win but in hindsight, KKR’s bigger problem lies with wicket-keeping. In order to play an extra batsman, they have resorted to part-time wicket-keeper Robin Uthappa who has been not good behind the stumps as he dropped the catch of Raina at the start of the innings and he scored match-winning 84 runs.
In such a scenario, it would not be a bad play to relieve Uthappa of wicketkeeping and play Saurashtra lad Sheldon Jackson instead of Suryakumar Yadav who has failed to make a good impact because of his average is very bad of 7.25 average in 4 innings.
