Match 41, Kolkata

What a day to be a Mumbai Indians fan! In truth, the second innings was a bit of a damp squib, but at the same time it was one heck of a good performance from team MI! The batting was strong from start to finish, but the man who really turned the game on it's head was Ishan Kishan, a 17-ball fifty is bound to get any team a bit of momentum as his innings did just that, and allowed his teammates to push the team score over the 200 mark. In reply, KKR never got going and early wickets meant they were on a hiding to nothing. Mumbai have made a real statement with the margin of victory this evening, and who would bet against them from winning the tournament from here? I wouldn't!

Make sure you return tomorrow for Delhi Daredevils against the Sunrisers Hyderabad! We'll be here of course! But until then, goodnight!

MOTM: Ishan Kishan 

Sharma: As a team we tend to pick up in the month of May. I can only wish and hope we come together as a team at the start. It's never easy to come out right all the time, we'd like to start on a high. I'm glad we came together as a team and performed well. Without doubt Ishan Kishan's knock, his fearless knock was the turning point. Hitting wasn't easy, the ball was sticking in. He just came in and changed momentum. Credit to him, he was waiting for this knock, wanted to come out. Also for Ben Cutting to come out and finish on a high, he hasn't got a lot of opportunities, but he backed himself to do that.

Karthik: 200-plus is always a big ask. We didn't bat well enough and who knows what would have happened if we had taken those catches. It was a good batting wicket, we lost wickets in the Powerplay and it's always tough to catch up. We took it like normal game even if they have a good record against us. 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.

Review! Reverse sweep, missed, and given! Kuldeep reviews, just in case it's missing. We now look at ball tracking and that confirms it's hitting! It's a WICKET! And with it the game!

18.1 K Pandya to K Yadav, WICKET!!! K Yadav is out lbw Krunal Pandya, 89.67 km/h good length on leg stump.

16.6 K Pandya to K Yadav, no run.

Wicket! The end is nigh! Curran wants to hit this one out of the park, but mis-times it and JP Duminy takes a good catch running in from long on

16.5 K Pandya to T Curran, WICKET!!! T Curran is out c JP Duminy b Krunal Pandya, 93.02 km/h good length on middle stump.

Close! Past the edge again, as Yadav looked to cut

16.1 K Pandya to K Yadav, no run, 85.92 km/h good length outside off stump.

The last timeout for the day is taken, but the strategic bit might not be too crucial during this one. KKR need just the 27 runs per over. MI are looking like a proper side at present. 

End of Over 16 - 8 runs KKR 103/8
Tom Curran17* (15b 3x4)
Kuldeep Yadav*2* (9b)

15.5 M Markande to K Yadav, 1 leg bye.
15.4 M Markande to K Yadav, no run, 89.76 km/h full length going down leg.

Dropped! It's the googly from Markande and the knick from Yadav is dropped by Kishan! I suppose he was due a mistake this evening. He's been marvellous 

15.3 M Markande to K Yadav, two runs, 76.79 km/h good length outside off stump.
15.2 M Markande to K Yadav, no run, 81.26 km/h good length just outside off stump.

It's all about net run rate now. It could yet still be crucial for both of these teams

13.6 B Cutting to T Curran, one run, 118.39 km/h short length just outside off stump.

Wicket! Another one bites the dust. And this time it's Chawla who slogs the Cutting cutter, straight out to Yadav at deep mid-wicket. He almost got enough on that to clear the ropes, but the margins in this game are sometimes fine

13.5 B Cutting to P Chawla, WICKET!!! P Chawla is out c Suryakumar Yadav b Ben Cutting, 118.0 km/h good length just outside off stump.

Four! Chawla is having a net out there! On the hip and flipped beautifully past the keeper
