Highlights:

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽Kolkata Knight Riders faced their demons once again as it was their match against Mumbai Indians; a team that has been winning against KKR since IPL 2015.

路 聽 聽 聽 聽 Although, KKR had the home advantage, however this was not going to stop Mumbai Indians from attacking their favorite team.

路 聽 聽 聽 聽So, KKR won the toss and chose to field first. Mumbai Indians were in a tight spot when and they knew this so they needed their batting unit to fire which they did.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽First and foremost, a nice partnership of 46 was shared between the openers before Evin Lewis got unlucky as the ball bounced off his pads after hitting his pads and Lynn took a comfortable catch to dismiss him.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽SA Yadav also departed not long after that, however then came Mumbai’s tornado. And, no it was not Rohit Sharma rather it was the young wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan, who scored 62 off 21 balls to put Mumbai ahead in the game.

路 聽 聽 聽 聽After he departed, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya also put in their contribution after which a strong finish was made by Ben Cutting to take Mumbai Indians in excess of 200 runs.

路 聽 聽 聽 聽 KKR bowlers were pretty average today, however they needed their batsman to be above average as they needed to score 211 runs to win off 20 overs.

路聽 聽 聽 聽 聽So, the 2nd innings started as KKR openers walked out to bat. Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn needed to give their team a good start. But, Mumbai were not going to let that happen as the Narine fell in the first over to McClenaghan.

路聽 聽 聽 聽 聽Even Nitish Rana who had been brilliant for KKR in the middle overs could not contribute as Mumbai were on a wicket taking spree.

.聽 聽 聽 聽 聽Nevertheless, Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik’s wicket was the end of KKR’s hope as Mumbai tore KKR’s batting line-up and got them all out on 108 runs.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽This was the biggest defeat for KKR this season as they lost by a whopping 102 runs. Credit goes to Mumbai as they scored a big total and then followed it up with the bowl as well.

路聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽Despite, losing their first three matches, the defending champions of IPL, Mumbai Indians have moved to the 4th聽spot in the table. Meanwhile, KKR needs their match-winners to step up if they need to win their place in the play-offs.
