IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians Inflict Heaviest Defeat on Kolkata Knight Riders

Rohit Sharma

Dinesh Karthik's run-out nearly killed the chase off for KKR. He later returned with the ball to claim figures of 2/12 in 3.2 overs.

Always the go-to man whenever there's need for a breakthrough, Sunil Narine came to bowl the fourth over.

The visitors lost Evin Lewis (18) early.

They used more short stuff at Eden Gardens and earned four wickets to those lengths.

The Jharkhand left-hander's pyrotechnics between the 10th and 15th over propelled MI from 62/2 in nine overs to 145/3 after 15 overs.

While Piyush Chawla got the wickets of openers Lewis and Suryakumar, Sunil Narine scalped the wicket of Ishan Kishan.

According to Us Weekly , the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made quite a fuss when their daughter turned three on May 2. Their photo also resembles that of Prince George and Princess Charlotte's first portrait together.

Ishan tore apart KKR bowling, especially Kuldeep Yadav who was clobbered for four consecutive sixes, en route to his 21-ball 62 (5x4, 6x6) as MI scripted a turnaround in the middle overs. Kuldeep Yadav was his main victim, who was smashed for three sixes in an over. MI was cruising and Ishan after facing a dot delivered yet another six. Cutting showed some great anticipation as he covered a lot of ground coming in from the boundary line before sliding in at just the right moment to take the catch. While the Kunal Pandya and Hardik contributed 19 and 8 respectively.

KKR had the opportunity to make a comeback. However, a run-a-ball knock of 14 runs was all he could manage which consisted of two sixes as well. However, Krunal Pandya ended Mumbai's inning with a six at long-on.

McClenaghan then held on to a brilliant running catch to dismiss Rana the next ball and the match was as good as over for KKR by then.

"The plan was to back myself and go for my shots if there was an opportunity".

KKR next takes on Punjab on May 12, which has 10 points from 11 games.

KKR slipped to 108 all out and suffering their second successive defeat which also sees them drop out of the playoff positions with the 102 run win powering the Mumbai Indians into fourth place on the log. He hasn't been able to churn out wickets and most importantly, he has been taken for plenty of runs, which hasn't helped the Knights' cause of putting a lid on the belligerent Mumbai batsmen. With the race for the playoff spots becoming intense, the time is now for KKR to string together a series of wins, according to an official press release.
