IPL 2018: Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Mumbai Indians Match Highlights, Review


10th over started with two new batsmen at the crease, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma. On the other hand, KKR is falling apart piece by piece.

The side winning the toss has opted to bowl in all 12 matches at Eden Gardens since IPL 2017, and have won 66.67% of those games.

Take a look at how all the players fared in this match. MI got off to a fine start with Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav smashing the balls to all parts of the ground. The last over from Piyush Chawla went for 22. All bowlers were in the mix with Pandya brothers grabbing two each. In the end, it was Krunal Pandya's six that sealed a huge total for MI. Piyush was the most successful bowler for KKR with his match figures of 4-0-48-3. His only victim turned out to be Chawla as well. At the end, Kolkata Knight Riders fell way behind the target as they could only manage 168 runs in their full 20.

It's that time of the year again for the Mumbai Indians. There was not even a flicker of hope for the home side as wickets kept tumbling one after the other. Rohit Sharma (36, 31b) came out to bat one down in this match. Kolkata Knight Riders lost to Mumbai Indians in their previous game and now face a big task of keeping themselves in the top four in the points table.

Rohit and Kishan stepped up on the run rate, especially the left-handed Kishan who hit the ball around the park. He bowled his usual tight line and lengths, mixed with the occasional yorkers and slower deliveries. Also, it helps if you are batting up the order.

Sunil Narine was out just after 2 balls to McClenaghan and KKR were 4-1.

The Aussie pack: Facing an improbable run chase and armed with a license to go for broke, it was another frustrating innings for Chris Lynn in a scenario that appeared tailor-made for the six-hitting superstar. "We need to raise our skill levels and belief a bit, as a leader I need to stand up and say I believe in the boys".

The hefty defeat also meant that the net-run rate of the team has been severely jolted, which won't work in their favour if the teams are locked on equal points.

Suryakumar Yadav (59 runs) was the star of the show last time at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, and he is all but set to retain his place in the playing XI. However, his innings was halted by Chawla on an individual score of 18 runs off 13 deliveries in the sixth over of the innings.
