IPL: Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 102 runs

Rohit Sharma

Hosts Kolkata Knight Riders run the risk of slipping away when they face resurgent defending champions and "nemesis" Mumbai Indians in an IPL clash at Eden Gardens on Wednesday. Ishan and Rohit Sharma added 82 runs off 34 balls for the third wicket to set the platform for Ben Cutting to finish things off with a flourish.

Mumbai have leaped over KKR to 4th spot on the points table. Captain Rohit Sharma though is of the opinion that the team should change that habit.

Ishan said his familiarity with Kuldeep Yadav allowed him to pick the chinaman bowler and hit him for four consecutive sixes.

Mumbai, who remain in the reckoning for the playoffs, have now won 18 times, and eighth on the row, in 23 meetings with Kolkata.

The Australian all-rounder played a terrific cameo of 24 runs off just nine deliveries with the bat, smashing Piyush Chawla over the boundary easily in the last over, and then returned to claim figures of 1/12 with the ball in two overs. He ended up with figures of 14.33 in 3 overs. Kuldeep Yadav was his main victim, who was smashed for three sixes in an over. The target was so massive that they had no option but to hit the ball, which resulted in continuous fall of wickets.

Captain Dinesh Karthik (5) could not extricate his side and he was run out in the 10th over.

However, Ishan Kishan was the hero for Mumbai as his 21-ball 62 powered the visitors past 100.

As has been their ploy, Narine came inside the powerplay and cleverly deceived the batsmen with his guile to restrict the run flow with nine runs from his first two overs. KKR's Piyush Chawla took 3 wickets by giving just 43 runs in 4 over.

Meanwhile, MI have gone with the same eleven that beat KKR in Mumbai a few days back. I knew he would look to get me stumped by bowling outside off. In fact in that kind of situation Krunal or Cutting can also be promoted in the batting order. The bulk of Mumbais runs - 148 - came from boundaries. Rana made 31 runs and they took the team pass the 100-run score. KKR bled profusely in the last seven overs, conceding 98 runs. While Narine departed early for four runs, Lynn fought hard to play a cameo of 21 from 15 balls.

KKR slipped to 108 all out and suffering their second successive defeat which also sees them drop out of the playoff positions with the 102 run win powering the Mumbai Indians into fourth place on the log.
