Mumbai Indians defeat KKR by 102 runs, climbs to top-four

Kolkata won the toss and chose to bowl first against Mumbai Indian. Mumbai Indians scored an intimidating 210 for 6 but 19-year-old Jharkhand batsman Ishan Kishan blitzkrieg stole the show today. KKR, on the other hand, slid to fifth after spending considerable time in the top half of the league. KKR will play their next match against the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Holkar Stadium in Indore.

Piyush Chawla had a lucky start as he picked up both MI openers with rank long hops. Lewis was dropped by Kuldeep Yadav (3/43) running backwards from square leg off Prasidh Krishna (1/41) when he was batting on 16. By the time Kishan fell for a 21-ball 62, Mumbai's score had swollen by 82 runs in just 5.4 overs.

He singled out Kuldeep Yadav for four consecutive sixes in the 14th over.

It was a poor day in the office for every Kolkata bowler apart from Sunil Narine, who finished with respectable figures of 1-27. His victims included the likes of Nitish Rana and Andre Russell and their wickets ended any hope that Kolkata had for a victory. All bowlers were in the mix with Pandya brothers grabbing two each. But a brutal innings by Ben Cutting (24 off 9) saw the Mumbai Indians post the highest ever total at the Eden Gardens. His only victim turned out to be Chawla as well. He contributed 36 runs.

In reply, the Knight Riders did not put up any fight as they rolled over for 108 in 18.1 overs to fall to one of the heaviest defeats in IPL. He hasn't been able to churn out wickets and most importantly, he has been taken for plenty of runs, which hasn't helped the Knights' cause of putting a lid on the belligerent Mumbai batsmen.

Chawla had done every thing right until he was asked to bowl the last over.

Kolkata was never in the chase, losing wickets at regular intervals. "The wicket was good, 190 would have been par". He was also given a lifeline by Kishan early on in his innings. He was finally dismissed on 62 by Narine in the 15 over but by then the damage was done. He played some nice strokes and fetched three boundaries as well in his 46-run opening stand with Suryakumar. The teenager looked settled for a massive score, before the experienced Narine brought a halt to his innings.

"After this game, our run-rate has taken a hit". When I smacked the first six, he said when you get the ball, go for a big six.
