Mumbai Indians continue roaring as they defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by 8 wickets. Winning the toss, KKR had opted for the option of batting first. Despite batting second, another clinical outing from Mumbai Indians. Rohit Sharma’s boys were outstanding on the fields with both bat and ball. MI’s commendable bowlers limited Kolkata and the latter’s bowling was just relentless. Today’s match was clearly a one-sided match as Kolkata did not really turn up.
Lagging from the beginning Kolkata managed only 148 scores in the board. During the break, things seemed to turn difficult as the pitch appeared two-paced but the partnership between Sharma and Q. de Kock put the chase to bed too early in just 16.1 overs. Things did not go the way it should have been for the Riders during the power play. It was only Varun Chakravarthy who shone in the fields tonight from team KKR.
It was definitely a resounding winning for Mumbai. Rohit Sharma, Captain of team Mumbai said he is proud of his boys and this win surely boosted their confidence further as trends have been changing as teams batting second is winning. Today’s win pushes Mumbai to the top of the table. Tonight, Man of the Match Award went to Q. de Kock. That’s all for the day, done and dusted.
