IPL 2012 final: Kolkata Knight Riders or Chennai Super Kings, who do you think will win IPL 5?Zeenews Sports Bureau

Chennai Super Kings peaked at the right time and pushed their case for a third IPL title further. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders reached the final of the T20 extravaganza for the first time in the league’s five-year history. Here’s a chance for our readers to predict the winner of the grand finale to be held on Sunday.

Chennai Super Kings

Under a captain with the Midas touch, CSK are a settled team, boasting destructive all-rounders and potent Indian contingent. They have retained their core team from the IPL 2008 auction. They are the team with the least number of players in their rooster, 17 and still they have been right there at the top, on their own.

Captain MS Dhoni is the golden boy of cricket in the present generation and he has taken Chennai Super Kings to heights known only to him. His calm and composed captaincy which seems invincible coupled with the cream of cricketing talent at his disposal makes Chennai Super Kings a force to reckon with. The prowesses of all-rounders have always helped CSK in the shortest format of the game. In the initial years they had the services of big hitting Justin Kemp and now the trio of Albie Morkel, Dwayne Bravo and Ravinder Jadeja have won the team matches on their own.


Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata were the most balanced team in the tournament and that balance was evident as they finished second in the points tally. But a closer look, hints at Gambhir’s supreme form with the bat and Sunil Narine’s supreme deception with the ball.

Though, Yusuf Pathan striking form on Tuesday would have bolstered KKR’s batting but it is their horses for courses selection policy that have done wonders for the Knights. Shakib Al Hasan and Laxmipathy Balaji have had a good season even though they have been used sparingly. Their spin attack led by Sunil Narine is their biggest strength. The West Indian recruit has trapped many a batsmen in his web of spin bowling. Rajat Bhatia too has bowled well and provided wickets at crucial times.
