Indian Premier League - 58th match

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians won by 27 runs

3.58 pmSachin Tendulkar will open the innings with Herschelle Gibbs today for the Mumbai Indians. Gibbs making his debut for Mumbai, finally fit after missing all the previous games because of an injury. It is Shakib al Hasan who has come in for Brendon McCullum and will take the new ball.

Shouts of KKR in the stadium

3.45 pm Pitch, as expected at the Eden Gardens, has no grass on it and spinners are expected to come good here. The last game played here saw Gautam Gambhir slam a 36-ball 56 before Kolkata collapsed by adding only 37 in the last eight overs. They went on beat Pune by seven runs.

3.30 pm, Toss: Harbhajan Singh has won the toss and decided that Mumbai Indians will bat first.

Gambhir: Continue playing the way we have been going, winning is a habit. Not about individuals, it is about KKR taking on Mumbai Indians. Would have batted first too. Try to bowl well, Brendon McCullum misses because of an injury, Manvinder Bisla is in, as is Shakib al Hasan.

Harbhajan Singh: Sachin Tendulkar's been a great inspiration for all of us, whether he is playing or not playing. Looks to be a decent pitch, score runs in the first 15 overs, later it becomes more difficult to score. Afternoon game, always good to bat first. I believe it is good toss to win. Herschelle Gibbs plays today, as does Munaf Patel.

This has been a stunning effort from the Mumbai Indians, 182/1 in 20 overs is much more than what one would have anticipated. They had 76/1 after 10 overs and at that time the score looked good, then they smashed more than 100 in the next 10 overs, thanks to Rohit Sharma's century, the eighth Indian to score an IPL hundred. Special mention about Herschelle Gibbs' half-century, who was making his debut this season for Mumbai, coming in from an injury. He batted maturely and supported Rohit throughout.

Shakib can hold his head high, ending with figures of 1/27 while Narine had 0/28 in his four. All the rest went for at least 10 an over.
