Gambhir And KKR End Their Tough Period


KKR had lost four games on the trot and most of the times it was poor form of Gautam Gambhir was the reason. In their last game against RR Gambhir did find the form but his team failed against some precise bowling of RR. But this time around KKR and Gambhir did not take any chance and made sure that this time they do not falter and won the game. On the other hand DD is having handful of problems. This is their 3rd loss at home in a row. Their captain is not firing at all nor is he inspirational. DD may repeat their sorry tale of last season again.
