While we are all charged up with the emotional win of West Indies at the T 20 World Cup Men, Women and Under 19, the celebrations at the Eden Gardens have just begun. Yes, in case you forgot, IPL is just round the corner and we are set for the party. Though the new team-names may take a little time to get used to, the only name that we Kolkatans need to know is of course, Kolkata Knight Riders.
History is witness to the fact that history is created at Eden Gardens and what better way to remember history than witnessing it getting created from the stands? Here’s all you need to know if you want to watch IPL 2016 from the Eden Gardens
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils
This is going to be the very first IPL match at the Eden gardens and its reason enough for you to be there to cheer for KKR
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians
This match is going to be a tough one. With MI winning most of the matches against KKR, you need to be cheering for KKR right from the stadium if you want them to win
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab
This match has always been Veer vs Zara. When the knights take on the players from Punjab they are going to need all your support from the stands.
Kolkata Knight Riders VS Gujarat Lions
The new kid in the block, Gujarat Lions will be getting their first taste of cricket at the Eden Gardens and you sure as hell need to be there to welcome them, but also make sure that they don’t return victorious
Kolkata Knight Riders VS Rising Pune Supergiants
This match is going to be Gambhir vs Dhoni and although you’d be inclined to support captain cool, do remember that it is Gambhir that you need to be supporting
Kolkata Knight Riders VS Royal Challengers Bangalore
Now their team owner may be out of town but that doesn’t make the team any weaker. KKR is going to need all your support in this match
Rising Pune Supergiants VS Kings XI Punjab
KKR is not going to be playing in this one, but heck, be there just for the fun of it!
Kolkata Knight Riders VS Sunrisers Hyderabad
Well, this will be the last match of IPL 2016 at the Eden Gardens and you don’t really want to miss the opportunity of being at the stadium until next year!
