IPL 2012 final: Key moments of 2012 IPL finalVineet Ramakirshnan

Kolkata Knight Riders, led by the ever focused Gautam Gambhir dismantled Chennai Super Kings from its perch after two years winning the IPL 2012 title in a high scoring affair.

Here is a look at the turning points of the game:

• It is said ‘Well begun is half done’ , and the duo of Michael Hussey- Murali Vijay did exactly the same for Chennai Super Kings as they setup a magnificent pace for CSK scoring 87 runs in 10.2 overs. Hussey as usual was accumulating the runs with singles and doubles as Vijay carried on the momentum from the qualifier to punish the KKR bowlers dancing down the track and giving it a big heave. It was Rajat Bhatia who made the breakthrough courtesy a brilliant running catch at deep midwicket by Shakib Al Hasan. Slower one from Bhatia and Vijay heaved big, only to get the edge but the ball travelled and Shakib completed a spectacular catch.


• Last over of the CSK innings was bowled by Shakib Al Hasan and the spinner conceded just 8 runs taking the wicket of big hitting Suresh Raina. With 8 wickets in hand, an extra 10 or 15 runs in the over could have come handy for CSK, but Gambhir’s gamble to throw the ball to the experienced campaigner worked as he did not conceded a single boundary in the last over even when Dhoni and Raina where at the crease.

• Manvinder Singh Bisla’s unexpected counter attack took Chennai Super Kings by surprise. The wicket keeper batsman clobbered Albie Morkel for four boundaries in the 4th over milking 20 runs from it. Bisla continued his charge with two sixes off Ashwin two overs later and in just 27 balls reached his 50. He went on with his counter attack only to be dismissed in the 15th over scoring 89.

• 17.5 over, Kallis went for a hoick over deep midwicket; Michael Hussey got hold off the ball, but lost his balance and he fell over the rope as his bid to throw the ball over the rope failed. Six for Kallis, but a half chance for CSK. The equation at that time read -- 27 runs off 19 balls.
