De Kock, Chahar lead Mumbai show of strength
Eoin Morgan's stint as Kolkata Knight Riders captain began with an eight wicket defeat
That brings tonight's festivities to an end. See you tomorrow with two games
Quinton de Kock, Man of the Match: "Those leg-side shots are just one of the shots I have in my armoury. I don't plan to do that, it is just natural. It is just about keeping my balance and playing them as I see them. Last game I was disappointed I didn't finish the game. Mahela had a couple of words with us. So I had to rectify that. Mahela can come hard at you if you do something ordinary. Ja to be honest I have played this game enough to know you can't do anything about it if you drop one. You have to carry on and do the best for your team. I am a better keeper than that, and don't drop catches on purpose so that is nothing to worry about."
Rohit Sharma: "It is special to win as comprehensively as this when chasing. It gives us confidence. I guess now teams batting second will win most of the games. That's what I feel. The trend is changing. It is always a challenge when you have won four in four. How you turn up is what matters. We turned up really well, and right from ball one we were in their faces. I am a big fan of match-ups. read them well, and decide whom to exploit when. Having said that, you have to read the pitch and be instinctive too. I still bowled Rahul and Krunal to Russell because the pitch was holding up a little bit. Then I brought on Bumrah. I enjoy batting with Quinton. He is straightforward. Most of the times I take the back seat. I have a role to play in the squad. I need to let Quinny bat free and not worry about what the team needs from him."
Eoin Morgan: "We weren't even at the races today. We got a score to bowl at in the end, but the way Mumbai got off, it is tough to stop them. Nos 4, 5 and 6 is a lot of our experience [when asked the thought process around sending Karthik ahead of himself]. Given the match-ups, we are trying to play our best hand there. Today it didn't make that much of a difference; we were all in early."
The most facile win of this IPL. The most comprehensive too. The only period that KKR won might be the last two overs of the first innings, and the man responsible for that - Quinton de Kock, who dropped Pat Cummins - came out and absolutely demolished this middling chase. Mumbai go back to the top of the table, and ask the injury-hit Delhi to do all the running tomorrow. Mumbai looking scary good and strong
Don't pitch it up, Chris. Just don't
Continues round the wicket
This could be the last over of the match
Mohak: "This is how a chase should play out when the team is dominant . A lot of the matches have gone on to the last over that have no business of going there because people believe that strike rates are overrated"
Slip in place
Cummins comes back
Varun is done for the night
