Skipper Rohit Sharma & De Kock to open

Can KKR reach to the playoffs? That’s the question here! it’s still possible. Assuming they win this one, KKR have two more games. So the maximum they can reach is 14 points, and then hope to edge ahead on NRR. So two big wins after this, a bit of bad luck for other teams, and you never know.

Counter-attack by MI

A total of 48 runs have been scored between overs 10-12. Hardik Pandya has hit 5 sixes so far! Pollard is merely given the strike – that’s how good he is. 92/4 after 11 overs. Still a mountain to climb.

Pandya-Storm at Eden!

This is the fastest fifty of the IPL season 2019 Off 17 balls! He’s in spectacular form, if the numbers didn’t suggest that to you already. 2 fours and 7 sixes so far. He’s seeing ’em like football. If only they had something around 200 to chase. 230-something feels like a little too much, even with Hardik going bonkers right now.

Equation says 93 runs needed off 30 balls

And catch is dropped!

Krunal Pandya Top-edges a googly, Uthappa calls for it and settles underneath it. And then, outta nowhere Dinesh Karthik comes running across, bumps into Uthappa and … poof, the catch is down. This miscommunication has denied a wicket at such crucial stage. KKR might be ahead of the game but such little mistakes and you never what can happen.

Heartbreaking for MI; Hardik falls for 91

Geez, even KKR fans would have secretly wanted Hardik to get to that hundred. What an amazing innings this has been by this young lad. Brutal display of six-hitting, turning the Eden Gardens from hostile to silent. Andre Russell takes the catch at deep mid-wicket. It’s like the game’s destiny tonight is weaved around him.

A small update-KKR win by 34 runs

On a day where everybody thought, Mumbai could have won if the target was around 200. Those 33 extra runs did actually hurt them. Hardik was superb, but Andre Russell’s all-round effort was too hard to beat. He didn’t just score 80* off 40 balls but also chipped in with bowling figures of 2 for 25. In the context of this high-scoring game, that’s something incredible.

Man of the match: Andre Russell for his all-round performance 80* and 2/25.
