Kolkata Knight Riders were 61 for 5 in 10.4 overs. KKR’s middle order is a big concern. Because Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell are not in a good form. They were in trouble but the partnership between Pat Cummins and Eoin Morgan takes the team to a respectable total of 148 for 5 in 20 overs. But, it was not enough as they are competing against Mumbai Indians because they have a strong batting line up.
Pat Cummins scored 53* in 36 balls and Eoin Morgan scored 39* runs in 29 deliveries. Coulter Nile’s last over was quite expensive because he gave 21 runs. He came in place of James Pattinson. He was rested because Mumbai Indians wanted to manage the workload of their players. It gives the opportunity to the other guys.
Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 8 wickets. They won the match with 3.1 overs remaining. Quinton de Kock receives the Man of the Match award for his brilliant knock.
