IPL 2012 lived up to its reputation as KKR beat defending champions CSK in a hard fought final.


Chennai. The misery of Kolkata Knight Riders and the winning ways of Chennai Super Kings came to an end at the Chepauk today.

KKR looked a more confident and consistent side in this IPL and they carried the same form to the finals. Made to chase a formidable 190 in 20 overs against a strongs opposition, KKR scored the winning runs with two balls to spare and five wickets in hand.

CSK won the toss and decided to bat first. The CSK openers set the pace of today's match with a partnership of 87 runs in no time. Michael Hussey scored 54 of 43 balls and Murali Vijay 42 of 32 balls. Suresh Raina then followed with a brilliant 73 of just 38 balls. Raina's innings was made of three fours and five huge sixes. CSK scored 190 for the loss of three wickets in the allotted 20 overs.

KKR got a big blow early on when the in form Gautam Gambhir was bowled by Ben Hilfenhaus for just two. The little known Manvinder Bisla then produced an innings under pressure that he'll remember the rest of his life. Bisla scored an incredible 89 of just 48 balls with eight fours and five sixes. As Bisla was going all guns blazing an equally important innings was being played at the other end by Jacques Kallis. The duo added 136 runs for the second-wicket. Kallis scored 69 (of 49 balls) and got out only in the 19th over. He made sure that the target was never out of reach for KKR.

Shakib al Hasan and Manoj Tiwari held their nerves to seal the match for KKR.
