Captains View

Eoin Morgan

We are going to bowl first. It worked in the first game and we are going for the same formula. Not getting complacent and sport has the knack to bite you in the back side. We have kept the same side.

Rohit Sharma

Feeling good. Looking forward to the game. Just one change; Anmol who played so well unfortunately misses out. Not a lot to be honest (on what he spoke about the last game). Certain basics of cricket that was missed, we need to do right. We have spoken about it and hopefully we can execute today. It is a good positive to have but I personally understand that every day is a new day. T20 is a format that you have to be good on that particular day.

Suryakumar Yadav then joins hands with de Kock but the duo fails to withstand the KKR’s bowling attack. SKY walks to the pavilion after scoring just 5 runs soon the long stand batsman de Kock too walks to the pavilion after scoring 55 runs.

MI then struggled to face the KKR’s bowling attack and wind up the innings after scoring 155 runs for 6 wickets loss.

Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer get in to lead KKR to chase down the target of 155 runs while Boult opens the bowling attack.

KKR poses an aggressive opening as they hit 15 runs in the very first over. KKR batsmen show no fear to the MI bowlers. Though Bumrah dismissed Gill for 13 runs, R Tripathi joins hands with V Iyer and drags KKR to a comfortable zone in chasing.

Soon, V Iyer registers his maiden IPL Half-century and leads KKR to a better position in chasing. After massive destruction created Bumrah dismissed V Iyer for 53 runs.

Skipper Morgan walks to the pavilion to make the match-winning partnership. But soon dismissed after striking an impressive six in Bumrah’s delivery. As expected the long stand R Tripathi drags KKR to an impressive victory by defeating MI by 7 wickets.

Player of the Match

Sunil Narine 

I’m coming off a good amount of cricket in the CPL and The Hundred. It’s getting better and better. It has takem me a while with this new action and I have put in a lot of work into it. Getting Rohit out in any form of cricket is good; he is a key wicket for Mumbai. Varun is someone who likes to know about the game and he likes to know what will happen. He is a quick learner and he has far to go. I wouldn’t say this pitch was sticky. It was flat but not as flat as last year. My batting depends on what my team requires, if they want to go at the top or at the end, I’ll do it.
