Kolkata face nemesis in Mumbai Indians

Live Cricket Updates: Live Scorecard For IPL T20 KKR VS MI Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders: IPL T20 squads, preview, predictions, and fantasy picks

It now gives Mumbai a very realistic chance of reaching the playoffs. Rohit Sharma (36, 31b) came out to bat one down in this match.

Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders Match 41 live streaming will be telecasted on Star Sports network channels like Star Sports First, Star Sports Tamil and Star Sports Hindi.

Their reply could hardly have been more different to the Indians' innings, Mumbai's top order all delivering around a superb 62 off just 21 balls from Ishan Kishan.

After today's match, their third on the trot, MI jumped to fourth spot with 10 points from 11 matches. He's a legendary player and keeps telling me that I can take time.

Suryakumar Yadav (36) had provided a steady if unspectacular start alongside Evin Lewis (18) but Piyush Chawla (3/48) sent both packing and he troubled the Mumbai Indians until a Kishan spanking tarnished his figures. He started hitting from the word go and smashed the bowlers all around the park.

He singled out Kuldeep Yadav for four consecutive sixes in the 14th over.

The 19-year-old from Patna, was on a roll as his innings was studded with five fours and six sixes. All bowlers were in the mix with Pandya brothers grabbing two each. His only victim turned out to be Chawla as well. Both Rohit and Hardik haven't been in the best of forms throughout this VIVO IPL 2018. His contribution, at a strike rate of more than 295, in a blazing 34-ball 88-run stand for the third wicket with Rohit set a flawless stage for the following batsmen.

A brief recovery followed, with Chris Lynn and Uthappa making use of Powerplay restrictions, but KKR were derailed in the fourth over when Lynn attempted a suicidal run. We batted well against them in Bombay. There was not even a flicker of hope for the home side as wickets kept tumbling one after the other. Rohit bhai also said, 'You can hit well, just look at the ball and get with the flow'. Huge runs, huge wickets and huge difference. He bowled his usual tight line and lengths, mixed with the occasional yorkers and slower deliveries. KKR had scored 108 runs, way short on their intended target. "I am happy that everything is coming out good for him".

Man Utd defender Young 'deeply affected' by Sir Alex illness
The former United manager is now undergoing treatment after having an emergency surgery for brain haemorrhage in the weekend. Ferguson , 76, won 13 Premier League titles at United and is regarded as one of the greatest managers in football history.


Chawla had done every thing right until he was asked to bowl the last over. Skipper Dinesh Karthik and Curran spoke to the umpire, only to hear that the decision couldn't be overturned.

Lewis looked good till the time he was at the crease.

The bulk of Mumbai's runs - 148 - came from boundaries.

Pandya has played an instrumental part in the Indians' recovery as he is the joint-higher wicket-taker in the tournament with 16 victims in 10 matches at an average of 15.68.

Kolkata lost Lynn and Karthik (above) to run-outs. It's not hard to see why MI have stuck to their young ward despite three ducks - two of them being first ball ducks - in the tournament so far. His wicket pushed Kolkata into a deeper hole with the scoreboard reading 49/3 in the seventh over.

The match started after Kolkata won the toss and opted to field first. Batting issues are not the only ones KKR need to deal with though, with some patchy bowling also standing in the way of consistent success.
