Yesterday IPL match: Highlights of MI vs KKR clash

In a match shortened by rain, Mumbai Indians’ Hardik Pandya chose to field first after winning the toss at KKR’s home ground.

The KKR innings started with Phil Salt and Sunil Narine opening the batting. Despite early setbacks with the loss of openers and skipper Shreyas Iyer in the powerplay, Venkatesh Iyer (42 off 21 balls) and Nitish Rana (33 off 23 balls) steadied the ship for the purple team.”

In the 9th over, Iyer fell while attempting to go after Piyush Chawla’s bowling, only to find Suryakumar Yadav at the boundary. Despite the setback, Andre Russel (24 off 14 balls), Rinku Singh (20 off 12 balls), and Ramandeep Singh (17 off 8 balls) contributed crucial runs, allowing KKR to post a total of 157/7 in their 20 overs.

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan got Mumbai Indians off to a flying start, scoring at a brisk pace of over 10 runs per over in the first 6 overs without losing any wickets. However, their momentum slowed down after the powerplay as Kishan (40 off 22 balls) fell while attempting a big shot off Sunil Narine’s bowling, followed by former skipper Rohit Sharma in the next over.

MI’s big hitters Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Tim David couldn’t shine on Saturday, managing only 11, 2, and 0 runs respectively. Unfortunately, Nehal Wadhera (3 off 3 balls) fell victim to a run-out by Mitchell Starc in the 14th over. While Tilak Varma (32 off 17 balls) and Naman Dhir (17 off 6 balls) put up a fight, the pressure of 22 runs required in the last over proved too daunting for the MI batsmen.
