MATCH PREVIEW OF THE 32ND MATCH OF IPL 2012: KOLKATA KNIGHT RIDERS V DECCAN CHARGERSApril 24, 2012
This is the second match of April 24, 2012 where, Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers will play against each other at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The match will commence at 8.00 PM IST. This is the second match between these two teams, the first being played at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack on April 22. After getting two successive victories in the last two matches, Kolkata will been keen to grab another victory in today’s match whereas Deccan will be struggling to get their first win in this IPL.
After getting a disappointing start in this IPL, Kolkata is now in full swing to get one victory after another and among the 7 matches played so far, it has bagged four victories. Having an NRR of +0.432, the team is in the second position in the DLF IPL Standings 2012. In their last match against Deccan, Kolkata team got a victory by defeating Deccan by 5 wickets. Although, the team is in a good position at present, but the overall performance picture of this team is not satisfactory. That night against Deccan, the team really struggled to chase a low score of 126. There is still a lack of consistency among the top order batting squad of this team. So, in today’s match as well, the team needs to get a victory to be in a safe position in this league.
Deccan Chargers, on the other hand, is the disappointing part of this IPL still with no victories. The team players have failed repeatedly to prove themselves in the field and the inefficiency of the fielders is mostly responsible for their defeats. Along with the fielding, the batting and bowling strike of this team have also been very poor in this season. To see a victory in this challenging tournament, the team needs to improve their performance, especially the fielders. The team has to get a win at this moment to boost up their team spirit and for that, they need to get a win today after five defeats in a row.
So, let us see whether “Korbo, lorbo, jitbo re…”theme again fills the Eden gallery with a triumphant atmosphere or Deccan gets their first taste of a winning match from this Kolkata ground. Here are the probable team players of both the teams.
