A win away from qualifying for the Indian Premier League 2014 play-offs, Kolkata Knight Riders seem to striking a purple patch. On Tuesday at Eden Gardens, in a clash between former champions, KKR thrashed Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets, their biggest against the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team.
KKR, under a hot and cold Gautam Gambhir, are also a win away from matching their best winning streak. This season, KKR have won five consecutive games, one each against Delhi, Punjab, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Chennai. They had won six in succession between April 18, 2012 and May 7, 2012, their best winning streak in IPL. KKR were champions in 2012.
