I have always been convinced with the fact that Sourav Ganguly is a matchwinner. And this belief of mine was re-established today. His dazzling innings of 88 off 54 balls was studded with 9 hits to the fence and 5 massive over boundaries. The ‘Prince of Kolkata’ was back in his elements today and dominated the attack like he used to during his hey days. Bowlers were clobbered all over the park as Ganguly played havoc from the beginning of the innings and the intent was on display for everybody. It was a special innings to regain form, after two disastrous IPL outings and inconsistent performance in this edition so far. And overcoming the defending champions was not an easy task as they are one of the most formidable packages in this format of the game.
KKR still have a long way to go and Ganguly has to sustain his golden touch if his team is nurturing hopes of cracking in to the semis’ line up. But this is an indicator of what this man is capable of and KKR definitely appear to be a better outfit when ‘Dada’ is leading from the front.
I would still have my fingers crossed though..!!
