IPL 2018: Suryakumar, Lewis take MI to 181/4

IPL 2018: Suryakumar, Lewis take MI to 181/4

Yadav and Evan Lewis (43) got the hosts off to an impressive start, sharing a 91-run opening partnership but Russell dismissed his fellow countryman as his attempted drive was comfortably caught at short third man. Mumbai Indians got their revenge on the 2 West Indians as Russell went for 9 and Narine went for 5.

When Kolkata required 37 runs to overhaul Mumbai's 181 for four, Dinesh Karthik, the visiting captain, was required to repeat his Nidahas Trophy final heroics.

Chasing the target of 182, both the openers Shubman Gill and Chris Lynn got out.

And, when Krunal took a good catch to get rid of the unsafe Russell to give Jasprit Bumrah his first scalp of the day, the visitors were left needing 43 off their final three overs. However, once Uthappa and Nitish Rana (31) were sent back in quick succession, KKR were back in familiar territory.

Soon after that, Markande faced Uthappa's wrath as the leggie was tonked for two sixes off successive balls in his first over. The legspinner put down the easiest of chances to throw Kolkata a lifeline. Uthappa took the team to the lead and made 50 on the grounds.

With KKR needing 23 runs off the final over, Sunil Narine's stay at the crease was short-lived as Krunal Pandya joined the party to dismiss the West Indian batsman for just five runs.

Kolkata seemed to be cruising to victory after Robin Uthappa (54) capitalized on an early dropped catch to hit his first half-century in this year's IPL.

Under mounting pressure, Andre Russell was the first to blink.

Krunal scored 14 off 11 balls hitting one four an a six.

As hard as Karthik tried, the task proved beyond him with only eight runs coming from the left-arm spinner.

Rohit Sharma came up the batting order amid great expectations from home fans. He ultimately perished trying to slog-sweep Sunil Narine for a fine 59 (39) which had set Mumbai up for a huge total.

Kings XI's opener Lokesh Rahul (84 off 54 balls) continued his supreme run of form and, despite losing Chris Gayle and Agarwal early, he carried the team to its sixth victory in the tournament.

From 28-2 in 3.1 overs, Uthappa and Rana dragged KKR to a respectable position of 112-2 in 12.2 overs.

MI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mayank Markande, Mitchell McLenaghan, Mustafizur Rahaman, Jasprit Bumrah, Akila Dananjaya, Ben Cutting, JP Duminy, Rahul Chahar, Sharad Lumba, Adam Milne, Siddhesh Lad, Md Nidheesh, Mohsin Khan, Anukul Roy, Pradeep Sangwan, Tajinder Singh, Aditya Tare, Saurabh Tiwary.
