Kolkata Knight Riders Finished IPL 2009 Campaign on Winning Note

Kolkata Knight Riders won their last match in IPL 2009 against defending champion Rajasthan Royals yesterday (Wednesday). With this victory, Kolkata finished their IPL 2009 mission on a winning note, even though their overall performance is totally disappointing. In fact, the Shah Rukh Khan franchise finished 8th in the 8-team tournament with only 7 points from 14 matches.

Rajasthan went into the game knowing that a victory would take them to the semi final, but Shane Warne boys failed to deliver their best and eventually lost by 4 wickets. Batting first, Rajasthan could put on a slim total of 102, losing 9 wickets. For Kolkata, Charl Langeveldt picked up 3 wickets, while Ajit Agarkar got 2 wickets.

In reply, Kolkata batsmen also struggled to reach the target as they lost 6 wickets only for 45. In fact, none of their top five batsmen could reach the double figure. However, Kolkata reached the winning total thanks to Laxmi Shukla’s 46-ball 48 and Agarkar’s 17-ball 13.
