Gambhir and Knights hope for final push

It’s difficult to step into Gautam Gambhir’s shoes and know what exactly is going through his mind. He keeps a straight face all the time, backs his players all the time and rarely smiles even after a win.

For a man who has stubbornly refused to throw in the towel, Gambhir’s luck has also been blighted by a few of his own decisions.

He has been vindicated in backing Manvinder Bisla and the way he has handled Sunil Narine and Eoin Morgan.

But blooding Ryan McLaren on a lively pitch against RCB instead of Brett Lee was a debatable call. Or asking McLaren to bowl the last over against Mumbai where he conceded 25 runs.

A loss on Sunday will end KKR’s chances of qualifying for the playoffs. But Gambhir remains a positive captain.
