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.

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.

In 1998, with Akram as captain, Lancashire won the ECB Trophy and Axa League and finished second in the championship tournament despite losing only five matches in all competitions throughout the season.

Wasim Akram made his Test cricket debut for Pakistan against New Zealand in 1985 and in only his second Test match, Wasim Akram achieved 10 wickets in the match. A few weeks prior to his selection into the Pakistan team, Wasim Akram was an unknown club cricketer who had failed to even make it to his college team. Wasim Akram came to the trials at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore in Pakistan, but for the first two days Wasim Akram did not get a chance to bowl. On the third day Wasim Akram got a chance; his performance convincing Javed Miandad to insist upon his inclusion in the national team.

The high points of his captaincy was the 1996-1997 victory in the World Series Cricket in Australia, two Test match wins in India in 1998-1999 and in 1999, when Pakistan reached the 1999 Cricket World Cup final. The low point was the 1996 Cricket World Cup in Pakistan and India, when Wasim Akram had to pull out of the quarterfinal match against India, citing injury. After Pakistan's defeat, there were angry protests outside his home and riots across the country from angry fans that accused the team of throwing the match and a government inquiry was launched into the failure.

• Pakistan Bowler Wasim Akrarm Retirement from Cricket: On 18th May 2003, at the age of 36, Wasim Akram abruptly announced his retirement from international cricket, ending a career which spanned 19 years. Wasim Akram had suggested that Wasim Akram was ready to quit several times towards the end of his career, but Pakistan's sub-par performance in the World Cup proved to be the deciding factor.

While working for the Kolkata Knight Riders, Wasim Akram was also responsible for the signing of Pakistani domestic left-arm fast-bowler Mohammad Irfan.[15] Akram has also been coaching in Pakistan fast bowling camps; his most notable discovery being the teenage Pakistani international, Mohammad Aamer.
