Chennai Super Kings Vs Kolkata Knight Riders IPL 2012 Final Live Streaming

Fifth IPL final and they are fourth time there into it! Yes we are talking about the mighty Chennai Super Kings. They have won two and lost one finals and this is the fourth time they have clinched a position into the finals. They are very well known to bounce back in the last stages of IPL and they did that again. Probably for the third time. They are team that knows how to handle pressure at crunch times and hence they come out with flying colours. On the other hand we have Kolkata Knight Riders who have played exceptionally well throughout the IPL 2012 and they have entered the finals for the first time ever. 

Chennai will again enjoy the home advantage as the match is played in Chennai. Murali Vijay scored the fastest century of IPL 2012 here against Delhi Daredevils couple of days ago. So CSK would expect a similar knock from him again. MS Dhoni has contributed well in bits and parts. Thanks to his quick 50 that CSK managed to beat Mumbai and proceed ahead in the play-off stages. Bravo and Morkel are two big hitters in the side and CSK also enjoys the services of good batsmen like Raina, Badrinath and Hussey.

CSK could make a hattrick of IPL titles if they receive an equally good support from the bowling unit. The bowlers did a very good job against Delhi Daredevils and fielding was exceptionally good. Hilfenhaus starts the proceedings with tight line and length and he is well supported by Bravo, Morkel, Ashwin, Jakati and Jadeja.

While Dhoni has clicked when the team badly needed him, Gambhir has led the team from the front. Gayle is the highest run scorer this year but Gambhir has been the highest run scorer from India. So certainly he plays the most important role in the IPL 2012 finals. He would expect a good batting support from Kallis, Yusuf Pathan, McCullum and others. Bowling wise Kolkata has been brilliant. Sunil Narine is a difficult bowler to bat and he succeeds in getting good number of wickets by giving away very less runs. Kallis, Lee and other bowlers provide a good support to Narine's wicket taking spells.

Chennai and Kolkata are two very strong units and match would be more interesting consider the dashing form of these two teams. We couldn't have asked for a better composition in the finals!
