KKR won the toss and asked MI to bat first.
Q de Kock failed to create an impact, in the 2nd game as well.
Rohit Sharma (c), played a very impactful role in shaping up the team score, and
the best part about this stay on the pitch was the flair with which he scored those runs.
Surya Kumar helped his captain and added a quick 47 runs off 28 balls, these 2 players had taken the scoreboard to 98 runs and then losing Surya Kumar Yadav.
I believe, MI middle-order batsman could have done a bit better and scored at least 20 to 30 more runs, and that could have been the best scenario and a safe run to defend.
Top 2 Batsman from MI.
1. Rohit Sharma: Scored 80 runs off 54 balls with 6 sixes and 3 fours.
2. Surya Kumar Yadav: Scored 47 runs off 28 balls with 1 six and 6 fours.
Mi Scored 195/5.
In comes KKR, Kolkata Knight Riders.
If you see their scorecard, they never looked in the groove.
Dinesh Karthik needs to take their batsman into account.
Cummins hit 4 sixes and scored a quick 33 runs off 12 balls,
it was just some last moments firecrackers work by the team.
J Bumrah took 2 quick wickets of A Russel and Morgan in 15th over, and this stamped a loss for KKR.
Thanks to Cummins they were at least able to save their face, by decreasing the loss gap.
Nothing much to talk about KKRs.
MI actually overplayed them in all of the departments.
MI has won its first game in the desert since 2014, after losing 6 matches.
MI had lost its first match with CSK (Read the coverage here)
