New Delhi: Going by past records, the difference between the two sides is quite stark. Yet, when Kolkata Knight Riders attempt to halt Chennai Super Kings' march towards the Indian Premier League crown for the third consecutive year, the contest will surely be riveting and pulsating courtesy the quality of players who will take to the field.
While Chennai Super Kings have not had the best of form in the ongoing season, the team had a bit of fortune going their way to move past the league stages and have since, peaked extremely well. Kolkata on the other end of the field have managed to stay on top or close to it, throughout this season. When the two teams collide against each other at Chepauk, certain battles will surely be a sight to behold.
Dhoni vs Gambhir: The two are well-established maverick players in cricket. Their ability to lead the side too, has not been doubted too often. MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir however have their individual styles and temperaments which are absolutely different. While Dhoni is the calm and composed skipper who backs his instincts even if, at times, many do not understand his decisions, Gambhir has elevated himself to a position from where his passion for the sport and the sheer desire to win, reflects clearly for all else to see.
