Kolkata Knight Riders' tryst with Deccan Chargers seems to be riddled with 'chance and co-incidence' as in Charles Dickens' novels.

Kolkata Knight Riders' tryst with Deccan Chargers seems to be riddled with 'chance and co-incidence' as in Charles Dickens' novels. The incidents surrounding Sunday's IPL II clash between the two sides bore so much resemblance to last year's that it beggars belief.

Mid-way between a match at the Eden Gardens, the floodlights went out holding up play for nearly 30 minutes. The game was tantalisingly placed, as the hosts were 89 for 5 in 16.4 overs, chasing Chargers' 111. The match resumed, however, and the KKR came out with flying colours. The match in Newlands on Sunday, too, got delayed due to floodlight problems. But this time, the Deccan Chargers won in retribution. They scaled KKR's 101-run target in just 13.1 overs. Poetic justice, is it?
