IPL Highlights, MI vs KKR: All-Round Mumbai Outclass Kolkata By 13 Runs
IPL Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders highlights: The Rohit Sharma-led team produced an all-round performance to outclass the Dinesh Karthik-led team by 13 runs.
Defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will look to make the most of their morale-boosting victory over Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) and continue their resurgence when they face Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 clash at the Wankhede Stadium today. MI recorded a thrilling win over KXIP on Friday night in a tie they had to win in order to keep their hopes alive of making it to the play-offs. The victory lifted Mumbai to fifth in the points table but thanks to a spate of reverses over the past few weeks, the Rohit Sharma-led side still have a stiff mountain to climb.
The hosts have to win all their remaining five games to make it to the playoffs. In KKR, they will find a rival who have more often than not got the better of them. Suryakumar Yadav (340 runs) has been in great form for MI and has scored consistently. But his opening partner, West Indian Evin Lewis has disappointed and will need to step up against KKR whose spin trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla and Sunil Narine can be very dangerous.
