Right, not quite the thriller we'd hoped for but the tournament has come alive and how! Mumbai are back in contention, KKR fighting for survival and needing to arrest this slide. The next week or so should be fascinating as we build towards the play-offs. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. This is the duo of Shashank Kishore and Vishal Dikshit saying goodnight. Cheers!
Ishan Kishan is the Player of the Match for his 21-ball 62. His Smart Strike Rate was 340, worth 36 more by our calculation. "I had a chat with my skipper. He just asked me to back myself and play the way I have when I've scored runs. I just wanted to look at the ball and keep smacking it. You have to believe in yourself, back your strengths. I'm okay batting anywhere."
Winning captain Rohit Sharma is all smiles, as you'd expect him to be. "As a team we tend to pick up in the month of May. I can only wish and hope we come together as a team at the start. It's never easy to come out right all the time, we'd like to start on a high. I'm glad we came together as a team and performed well. Without doubt Ishan Kishan's knock, his fearless knock was the turning point. Hitting wasn't easy, the ball was sticking in. He just came in and changed momentum. Credit to him, he was waiting for this knock, wanted to come out. Also for Ben Cutting to come out and finish on a high, he hasn't got a lot of opportunities, but he backed himself to do that."
Mumbai Indians' win% in last five IPL seasons (2014 to 2018)
In April - 41.66% (Won 15, Lost 21)
In May - 70.27% (Won 26, Lost 11)
Karthik: 200-plus is always a big ask. We didn't bat well enough and who knows what would have happened if we had taken those catches. It was a good batting wicket, we lost wickets in the Powerplay and it's always tough to catch up. We took it like normal game even if they have a good record against us. We need to raise our skill levels and belief a bit, as a leader I need to stand up and say I believe in the boys.
Cutting: Was a bit tight the other night, but nice to get out there with the bat. Nature of the IPL is that you've got to wait your time and when the time comes, you do your thing. We have momentum going but we still have three matches to go and let's see how it goes.
11.30pm Yet another win from Mumbai, handshakes all around as the team walks off with a massive margin of 102 runs and Mumbai go fourth on the points table. That's a huge loss for KKR, they'll have to fix many things to bounce back from here. Two straight losses against Mumbai after winning the toss, they didn't do too badly in Mumbai but today they were very poor with the bat and running between the wickets.
Two overs to go, one wicket left
Time for Krunal
Raj Krishnan: "It's a mystery why great spinners cannot read/bat the mystery spin"
