KKR - the new Champions of IPL 2012, Season 5

IPL 2012 Final Review

Kolkata Knight Riders are the new IPL Champions. They chased down an imposing Super Kings total inspired by Manvinder Bisla and Jacques Kallis. Both scored half-centuries in different styles in a great game of cricket that went down to the wire. The Knight Riders will have to thank Manvinder Bisla. Displaying no nerves he set about taming the Super King attack with some ease. He was ably assisted by the unflappable Jacques Kallis who was there till almost the end to take the side through to their maiden title.

Chasing a huge total of 190 runs in a final is a tough task and it got harder for the Knight Riders as Hilfenhaus struck in the very first over bowling Captain Gambhir, the team’s most prolific batsmen and Chennai would have thought that was half the job done. But then came Bisla. He kick-started Kolkata’s run-chase by hitting Albie Morkel for four boundaries and kept the pace going through to his highest IPL score of 87. Kallis was restrained during his half-century, brought up off 39 balls, and his 136-run stand with Bisla helped end Chennai’s superb run in the 2012 playoffs in dramatic fashion and denied them a hat-trick of trophies. Chennai didn’t give up and took the match into the final over, but Manoj Tiwary finished the deal with two leg-side hits with two balls remaining. After Morkel, Bisla then took on R Ashwin. He was driven for consecutive sixes, down the ground and over mid-on, and the chase was on. With the 50 of the innings coming up in the sixth over, Bisla stepped up the scoring in the next over by driving Dwayne Bravo for six over mid-off. MS Dhoni tried the left-arm spin of Shadab Jakati after the time-out, but Kallis greeted him with an edged four. Bisla reached his half-century in 27 balls in the same over, and in Bravo’s second he collected his fourth six.

By the halfway mark, KKR were 100 for 1 and motoring on smoothly. At this stage they needed 91 from 60 balls. The way Bisla and Kallis were playing it did not look difficult to achieve at all. It was Bisla all the way. His intensity and strike-rate did not relent. In Jakati’s second over, he hit two more fours, then collected a sixth six by slamming Ashwin over extra cover. At the other end, Kallis was playing a gem of his own. His 69 off 49 balls eased the pressure on Bisla. Jakati was lofted over the in-field for consecutive boundaries as Kallis reached fifty off 39 balls and then perfectly bisected two men in the deep for a boundary after Laxmi Ratan Shukla was out for 3. Kallis had a moment of luck when Michael Hussey held a leaping catch on the boundary but fell across to concede six.

The match again swung tantalizingly as Yusuf Pathan lost his wicket to Ashwin, at which point KKR needed 27 off 17. Kallis then cramped up to adding to the tension as he found it difficult to run the singles and twos. With 20 to defend off 12 balls, Hilfenhaus sent down two full tosses in a row – the first Kallis hit straight to sweeper cover to be out for 69, but the next was deemed to be above Shakib Al Hasan’s waist. The Knight Riders got three priceless runs and an extra ball, which Shakib expertly scooped to fine leg for four. This was a huge setback of the Super Kings. Needing nine from six balls, Shakib and Tiwary exchanged singles before Manoj Tiwary swung Bravo over short fine leg for four and another pull through the same region to hit the winning runs.

IPL has a new champion.

DLF IPL 2012 has a new champion - Kolkata Knight Riders

Earlier in the day, It was the turn of the next big out of form batsman from the Chennai Super Kings to shine on the big stage here today as they chased their hat-trick of titles. Suresh Raina who has had an indifferent championship so far came into form and played a swashbuckling innings of 73 of only 38 deliveries helping his team reach a formidable 190 for 3 in their allotted 20 overs.

MS Dhoni won the toss and chose to bat in the final where they went in with an unchanged side from the playoffs. Knight Riders, though, were forced to make changes because their seamer L Balaji didn’t recover in time from his hamstring problem. They decided to go with the pace of Brett Lee, which meant sidelining their regular wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum, with Manvinder Bisla returning for only his second match in more than a month.

First MS Dhoni, then M Vijay and now S Raina have each played three great innings to get back into form and importantly all have been in very important games for the Super Kings. Today was Raina’s day. To Raina’s advantage he walked in with the Chennai Super Kings opening duo putting up a good stand of 87 in 10.2 overs. Quickly settling down, with Hussey for company, Raina proceeded to flay the Kolkata Knight Riders with a great deal of ease.

After a slow start, the Chennai Super Kings tore in to the Knight Riders attack. After two overs that went for only 12, the Super Kings took 48 off the next four. Brett Lee was taken for two boundaries in the third over, Shakib was hit for six first ball, and Lee’s third over went for 19 as each opener hit boundaries and a six each.

It was an innings of masterly skill. In the process he laid bare the mystery of Spin wizard, Sunil Narine whose bowling he took a special liking to. Raina was in his elements today. None of the Knight Rider bowlers posed any problems for him. His first hit to the boundary was a powerful pull for six of Jacques Kallis. But it was his attack on Sunil Narine that caught the eye. Two massive sixes of the bowler stood out, a slog sweep into the stand and a huge six near the sightscreen. Similar treatment was meted out to Brett Lee as well.

Sunil Narine was belted for 37 runs in his four overs and he didn’t get a wicket! For the first time in the Championship, the mystery of Narine was sorted. Raina in particular was severe on him. Brett Lee went for 42 in his 4 overs.

The Super Kings batted with intent. It was a measured batting effort on display in the finals. M Vijay carried on his good form from the last game with an attractive innings of 42 that included a beautifully timed six over long-on of Brett Lee in the sixth over. Birthday boy Hussey kept him good company. Always alive to the need to keep the scoreboard ticking with quick singles he mixed them with some good hits to the boundary and a couple of sixes. After losing M Vijay, he held the innings together giving Raina company.

Eventually Hussey was bowled by Kallis missing a swipe getting bowled. It was a tired shot with the heat and humidity eventually getting to him. It was a good solid innings of 54 of 43 deliveries that included 4 hits to the fence and 2 sixes.

But the Kolkata Knight Riders did not allow the Chennai Super King batsmen any easy runs towards the end of the innings. The last 3 overs infact yielded only 30 runs and that included a great last over by Shakib Al Hasan who gave away just 8 runs at a time when you would have expected the batsmen to hammer every ball. The Kolkata Knight Riders fielded with intent. The fielding was good and it was a sustained effort throughout the innings. The determination of the Captain as he marshaled his resources was backed by a disciplined effort.

IPL 2012 Final – Post match Interview with Gautam Gambhir

Gautam Gambhir leads KKR to the IPL 2012 Championship Title

When the Kolkata Knight Riders paid a whopping USD 2.4 million in the 2011 IPL Players Auction for Gautam Gambhir, several eyes popped out and eyebrows were raised. Gambhir was neither a ballistic giant like Chris Gayle nor did he have the Midas touch of MS Dhoni. Why would a team spend a fortune on a diminutive opening batsman with more skill than power and without much experience in a leadership role? Two years thence, the answer is here. KKR’s pocket-sized powerhouse has led them to something that they’ve been craving for since the last five years – the IPL crown.

Since his appointment as KKR’s captain, Gambhir has voiced his desire to bring joy to the City of Joy. And he has brought beaming smiles on the faces of the people of Kolkata by leading their team from the front. Despite being KKR’s highest run-getter with 590 runs in the tournament and marshalling his troops wisely, as a team man, Gambhir refuses to bask in self-glory.

After leading KKR to a win over the Chennai Super Kingsin the IPL 2012 final, Gambhir took time out to share his thoughts with iplt20.com. While being modest about his own contributions, Gambhir eulogised his team for showing great heart.

How would you describe this victory?

We wanted to prove this point to everyone that a captain is only as good as his team, and it’s the team that has done the job for us.

You were really pumped up after the win. Was it the ecstasy of the victory?

This is what you play cricket for. The entire odds were against us. We were playing CSK in their own backyard and they were the defending champions. From day one, I have been saying that KKR is not about one or two individuals, it’s about all of us sitting in the dugout and in the dressing room. We proved the point to the country that KKR is not about ‘me’, it’s about ‘we’.

What was the talk in the dressing room after the first innings?

If someone can get 190 against our bowling attack, it obviously is a very good wicket to bat on as we have done a fantastic job throughout the tournament with the ball. We always thought we could chase that target. People were talking a lot about our middle order, saying it hasn’t clicked but they showed it when it mattered the most. After [Manvinder] Bisla, I think Manoj [Tiwary] is the actual hero, because I have always said that it’s not about the start, it’s how you finish; Manoj finished it perfectly for us.

Was there anything that the team did differently this time around after coming close in the last season?

It’s never about coming close – you either win or lose. There are no greys, its either black or white; and that is how I have lived my life. In the last season, we didn’t play as well as we should have, and this year, we were determined to take the side all the way. I have always said that we are the side to look out for, and that is what we have shown today.

Who would you dedicate this victory to?

Today, I was playing for L Balaji. He has been our unsung hero; [he] missed out in this crucial match due to injury, that too in front of his home crowd. I personally wanted to do this for him and he deserves all of this.

Does captaincy bring out the best in you?

I don’t know. I think it’s the successful team that makes a successful captain and not vice a versa.

Kolkata Knight Riders is the IPL 2012 Champions

KKR is the new champion of the IPL 2012, season 5. They beat Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets in a nail biting final with 2 balls to spare. MS Bisla lead the huge run chase with a brilliant 89 of just 48 balls followed by Kallis, who hammered 69 of 49 balls. Bisla & Kallis hundred plus run partnership set the winning platform for KKR, though they have lost few quick wickets in the late overs. Sakib Al Hasan & Tiwary kept their heads cool to guide Kolkata for a historic victory on IPL 2012 Final. Congratulations to KKR.

Earlier, Chennai won the toss and elected to bat. Strong opening stand from Hussey & Vijay put them in a riders position. Later Raina & Dhoni capitalizes and build a formidable total of 190 for 3 wickets. Shakib Al Hasan took a stunning catch of the bowling of Bhatia to got rid of the opening partnership. Later Shakib got the wicket of Raina, caught by Lee.

this is the highest run chase in an IPL final. Only once has the side batting second won the IPL, when Rajasthan Royals chased 163 off the last ball in 2008, against CSK.

IPL 2012 Final – Post Match Interviews

L Balaji: “We are one family and we did what we wanted to do from day one. We stuck to each other, ultimately it paid off, great feeling to lift the trophy.”

Jacques Kallis: “Being an allrounder is hard work. CSK are a champion side, credit to our guys to beat them at their home ground, they don’t get beaten a lot here. Chasing 195 It is a little bit old age I think [jokes about the hamstring]. But it should be alright. We did not panic, that was the key. At times, you can panic chasing 195.”

Lee: “It is not only about those who played tonight. Everyone has done a brilliant job, guys who played through the tournament, coach, support staff. I had my batting gloves on, I was very nervous, but that is T20 cricket. That is why Jacques Kallis is the best in the world.”

Yusuf Pathan: “The way Gautam has captained in the last two years, it is comparable to Shane Warne [at Rajasthan]. He has supported the players a lot. We have played as a team. We enjoyed each others’ success. I got to play the role in the semi-final, today Bisla and Kallis did it. The way Bisla was in and out of the team, he did very well. It was tough to leave out a top player like McCullum.”

Sunil Narine: “Coming in a big tournament and having a big impact is huge. But it is about 11 players.”

Wasim Akram: “I have won World Cup for Pakistan, but this is very different feeling. I am very happy. Knowing our owner SRK, it is going to be a madhouse.”

Shakib Al Hasan: “I dont think we will be able to sleep tonight. I think Shah Rukh has gone mad. I dont know what he is doing.”

 

Manvinder Bisla: “I don’t think I have hit as well, good to play this in the finals to help win it for my team. There was no plan, wanted to go out there to enjoy, after Gambhir got out, I felt a tad tensed but after getting one or two to the fence, I got the confidence. Kallis is a legend, batting along side him was a great opportunity, he asked me to keep it simple and get going. I am happy from inside (when asked to smile by Pommie Mbwanga!)”

 

Brendon McCullum: “Pretty satisfied. We have had four hard years. To come out in tough conditions and chase 195 against CSK is very satisfying. People back in Kolkata and Bengal will be proud of us. We have been relaxed the whole way through. We never lost the belief in our own abilities

Trevor Bayliss, KKR coach: “We played a team game throughout. The partnership between Bisla and Kallis was the winning one. People said we could not do it without Gautam scoring runs, but we proved we could tonight. Wicket tonight was a lot better batting wicket than the one we played on here few weeks ago.”

Shah Rukh Khan: “i want to thank Gautam and my boys.”

IPL 2012 Final Match Review

There were a galaxy of former Indian cricketers in attendance, the brightest lights from Bollywood were in the stands, both teams had some of the biggest stars in the world game but the headlining performance came from little-known Manvinder Bisla as Kolkata Knight Riders prised the IPL trophy out of Chennai Super Kings’ hands. Bisla, who was without a Ranji Trophy side last season, made a mockery of his previous career Twenty20 strike-rate of 106 to play a jack-in-the-box innings that helped overhaul what had seemed a mountainous Super Kings total.

The title seemed headed Super Kings’ way for the third year in a row, when for the third match in a row a seemingly out of form Super Kings batsman played a blinder – this time it was Suresh Raina – and the rock of Knight Riders’ batting Gautam Gambhir was bowled in the first over.

All that changed when Bisla intervened. Virtually every ball he faced, he either jumped beyond leg to make room or danced down the track to get close to the pitch of the ball as he unleashed a series of lofted extra cover drives to dent Super Kings. The first signs of trouble for the defending champions was when Bisla crashed Albie Morkel for four off-side fours in the fourth over to kickstart Knight Riders’s innings.

For Chennai Super Kings’ third straight playoff match, a similar tale played out, putting them in prime position for their third consecutive IPL title. For the third time this week, a magical innings from a previously out-of-form batsman left the opposition clueless and Super Kings with a giant total.

After MS Dhoni and M Vijay, it was Suresh Raina’s turn to play a blinder. He entered with Super Kings already in a position of strength, with Michael Hussey and M Vijay clicking again, and proceeded to pulverise the best of the Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers.

Weak against the short ball? Raina’s first boundary was a powerfully pulled six over midwicket off Jacques Kallis. The mystery of Sunil Narine? Raina slog-swept into the stands and later deposited the ball near the sightscreen as Narine was handed his most expensive figures of the tournament. Brett Lee was swiped over midwicket on his way to figures of 4-0-42-0, nullifying the decision to include him to provide additional firepower to the Knight Riders attack. The shot of the innings, though, wasn’t a muscled one, but a punch over the bowler’s head that was perfectly timed to beat a diving long-on.

Unlike in the knockout game against Delhi Daredevils, Super Kings took a couple of overs to get going. Vijay didn’t show off his off-side drives like he had against Delhi, instead reverting to his flat-bat hoicks and whips to wide long-on. His confidence was highlighted by an on-the-up thump over long-on for six when Lee dropped a bit short in the sixth over.

Keeping Vijay company was Hussey, who initially tackled the spin of Shakib Al Hasan with a series of reverse-sweeps. He countered Lee by bravely shimmying down the track and launching over long-off. As usual, Hussey’s innings had the muscled sweep-pulls to midwicket and featured some precision placement. Midway through the innings, he was gasping for breath but his running did not slacken, even when he the non-striker. The boundaries vanished towards the end of Hussey’s stay, but by then Raina was hammering the attack out of shape.

Knight Riders didn’t fade in the field like Daredevils had. The first wicket came through a superb diving catch from Shakib, and there was no let up in effort as they attempted to keep the torrent in check. It was a flat pitch, and with a long batting line-up, Knight Riders weren’t out of it yet.

The road to the IPL 2012 final is often arduous, and the path towards the IPL title is certainly one that requires a lot of character and temperance. Sport has no definite formula for success; as a result, the IPL 2012 final also presents an opportunity to witness two contrasting captaincy styles of the leaders of the two finalists. MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir might have played and won a lot together, but come Sunday, they’ll be trying to outfox each other with their own brand of leadership.

The Super Kings have been there and done that by peaking at the right time and carrying on that momentum all the way till winning the trophy. Meanwhile, the Knight Riders are making their first appearance in an IPL final thanks to Gambhir’s ability to get his players firing in unison.

“Gautam is an aggressive captain – a bit different from me. I am aggressive as well, but I’m not very expressive on the field and that has been the strength of CSK. Gautam, on the other hand, is very expressive,” Dhoni said as he emphasised how he’s different from the KKR skipper.

“Even if the game is in his pocket, he is still on his toes, demanding that his players keep up the momentum and wrap the game up convincingly. That is his strength as a leader and he’s done really well with KKR,” he added.

The goal of both teams remains the same but the method chosen for achieving victory varies. KKR follow their skipper’s mantra of one for all and all for one, while CSK leave more room for individual brilliance; for example, Murali Vijay’s electrifying knock in Qualifier 2 against the Delhi Daredevils.

“KKR is not about one or two heroes, it’s about the people who have supported us back home,” Gambhir emphasised ahead of Sunday’s final.
Dhoni, on the other hand, put the onus on one of the 22 players to etch his name in their team’s folklore. “It’s another opportunity for someone to be a hero – that’s how I look at it. Tomorrow somebody, either from our side or KKR will be a hero,” he said.

All in all, the final at the MA Chidambaram Stadium promises to be a fascinating encounter with a battle of cricketing philosophies awaiting fans worldwide.

IPL 2012 Final Preview (Chennai v Kolkata)

Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders clash in IPL 2012 Final in Chennai.

Live IPL 2012 Final - Kolkata vs Chennai - May 27

Chennai Super Kings’ campaign, which had stuttered midway, was revived by making a place in the final by trashing Delhi Daredevils. The manner in which they brushed aside Delhi should cause shivers to Knight Riders, though they took their foot on the final dominating the season. Chennai Super Kings depends on a powerful batting order on the IPL 2012 final Chennai pitch that gave the seamers a lot of assistance.

 

Players to watch : Chennai v Kolkata – IPL 2012 Final

In a forgettable game with the ball for Knight Riders against Mumbai Indians, Shakib Al Hasanwas the lone wicket-taker and finished with the best economy rate – 6.75 – off his four overs. Shakib returned after nearly a month on the bench and enhanced his reputation by bowling 12 dot balls.

Ben Hilfenhaus was the standout performer for Super Kings against Daredevils with a match-defining 3 for 27, but Albie Morkel‘s contribution was also significant. He took a wicket but gave away just 15 runs off four overs. Morkel’s overall economy rate for Super Kings over five seasons is a pricey 8.22. His returns on Saturday were a refreshing change.

 

Stats and trivia

  • Ravindra Jadeja is Super Kings’ leading wicket-taker with ten wickets and has bowled 29 overs. Dwayne Bravo is second with nine but has bowled 13 overs more.
  • Sunil Narine has gone wicketless in an innings only twice in his ten games for Knight Riders.
