Indian Premier League IPL 5 2012 T20 KKR CSK Final Match Watch Online, IPL 2012 Award Winner Names, KKR wins IPL 5 T20 2012 Cricket Tournament, Indian Premier League 5 2012 Winner KKR, Who wins purple / orange cap in ipl 5 2012, who win emerging rising star award in ipl t20 2012.
It was not at easy to beat defending champions at their home ground. But, this year Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Team played extremely well throughout the season and most importantly played as a Team. Probably, this makes KKR the Champions of IPL T20 2012 Season beating defending champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who had won IPL T20 Companionship twice [in 2010 & 2011].

Today on 27th May 2012 (Sunday), the Team of Bollywood King Shahrukh Khan (SRK) snatched the IPL T20 2012 Cup from Chennai to Kolkata under the Captaincy of Gautam Gambhir. Right from 2008, when IPL T20 Tournament started, SRK’s KKR Team never performed well enough but from 2011 KKR started playing well under Gautam Gambhir. It is a great decision to appoint Trevor Bayliss as KKR Coach & also to bid for Suniel Narine during 2012 IPL Auction because, Suneil Narine became the mystery bowler & never conceded more than 5 runs per over in every match he played. 

But, it has to be said, KKR won 2012 IPL T20 Championship not for Individual performance but for the Team effort where all players stayed like a family and played their part. Whether it is Narine, Kallis, Mc.Cullum, Lee, Shakib or Indian Players Gautam, Laxmi, Bhatia, Manoj, Debabrato, Yusuf, Balaji all played as a team and performed when team required.

In the final when CSK posted 190 Runs batting first at their home ground in Chennai, it wasn't easy to chase 191 for KKR. And the things became worst when KKR lost Gautam Gambhir [Leading Run Scorer for KKR in IPL 5 2012] in the 1st over. But, Manavindar Bisla, Indian Wicket-Keeper Batsman plays for Haryana, came to the rescue along with World’s no.1 all-rounder Kallis. Both of them scoring half-centuries and maintained healthy run rate to ensure KKR win. In the last over, Bengal Cricketer Manoj Tiwary hit the winning run. What a moment it was for SRK & KKR – SRK is rocking Bollywood over the years and now his team KKR is rocking IPL T20 Cricket Tournament. SRK’s KKR made Kolkata proud as well.
