7.58pm The broadcasters have skipped the post-match presentation given the short turnaround time between the first and second game. Guess it's time to say goodbye. Switch tabs to the other game that's starting in Indore. Kings XI Punjab v Rajasthan Royals. First ball starting in a minute. We'll see you there. Bye for now!

7.45pm That's seven consecutive games, and 1125 days since Knight Riders last beat Mumbai, all the way back in April 2015. Handshakes all around as the Wankhede goes crazy. They're still alive.

Vishal Pawar: "Told ya yesterday, they're our bunnies! One more to go and we are even at the third spot!"

Pranay Bhanot: "Hardik Pandya for MoM ? Crucial runs with the bat and an outstanding spell with the ball..."

Krunal to Karthik, 1 run

good length outside off, and bunted to long on for a single. Cheers all around! Mumbai Indians win by 13 runs!

the crowd comes aliiiive!

19.5
Krunal to Karthik, no run

back of a length on middle, and DK pulls to deep midwicket. Refuses the single

19.4
4
Krunal to Karthik, FOUR runs

low full toss, very wide outside off. DK gets down on one knee, and carves it over point. KKR need a six, but all they get is a four

Chirag: "Its good learning by KKR that Narain can't take calculated risks for death overs, and better to open with him to have wild scoring."

19.3
Krunal to Karthik, no run

good length on leg stump, and DK tries to pull it. Tries to play it on one knee, but can't connect. Krunal appeals for lbw, and then asks for a review. Nah, it's going down leg

SD: "@Sameer: It's unfair to blame Uthappa alone. No one else contributed much in a chase where more than 9 is required every over. You can't expect one batsman to do it all by himself. It's a team game after all.

Long on, long off, deep midwicket, deep backward square and deep cover in place for DK as well

Adi: "Mi Gave 24 and 21 runs in their final over in their last two matches and today kkr need 23 runs,cant say anything "

Stof: "From a Protea supporter, i'll take Uthappa any day of the week"

19.2
W
Krunal to Narine, OUT

full outside off, and angling away from Narine. Tries to lift it over cover, but slices it to the man on the circle. DK has crossed to the other side though!

KKR need 19 off 5 balls.

19.1

Krunal to Narine, FOUR runs

full toss outside off, and that's in Narine's arc! Thumped past the non-striker to the straight boundary. Long-on just a spectator

Krunal to bowl the final over. Risky, given Narine's on strike. Mhhm. Long on, long off, deep midwicket and deep cover in place

Bumrah to Karthik, FOUR runs

dropped at deep backward square! And goes for four. Another low full toss on middle, and that's been whipped off his pads. Duminy got under it, but messes it all up. The ball pops out, takes a bounce, and then goes for four. Kolkata need 23 off the final over

18.5
4
Bumrah to Karthik, FOUR runs

overpitched on middle and leg, and DK gets his front leg out of the way to smash it straight! Long on had no chance. Good use of the crease's depth

Sameer: "A lot of people feel sorry that Uthappa is not in the Indian team. But this game explains why. He just is not capable of finishing them off. He had that opportunity today; and he fizzled off despite a great start."

18.4
Bumrah to Karthik, no run

short! On off stump, and soaring over his shoulders. DK tries to pull behind square, but can't connect at all

Football fans in the Indian subcontinent can head to ESPN.in to stream the La Liga match between Atletico Madrid and Espanyol.

18.3
Bumrah to Karthik, no run

low full toss on middle, and DK swings wildly. Hits his bat's inside half and goes to fine leg. Says no to the single

18.2
6
Bumrah to Karthik, SIX runs

waist-high full toss, and that's been drilled over deep midwicket! The umpire at square leg says it's a legal delivery. Was close. McClenaghan tried to get his fingertips to it in the deep, but the ball sails just over

18.1
Bumrah to Karthik, no run

low full toss on leg stump, but Karthik can't put it away. Tried to slog it towards the leg side, but the ball hits his front leg

Where did Knight Riders lose the plot? They need 37 off the final two.

Srinath Sripath [7:34 PM]

KKR's run rate has dropped to 6 an over since Uthappa fell. They were cruising at 8.96 till then.

Vignesh Kamath: "Narine at TOP and Gill as finisher was ideal for KKR. Sometimes too much planning kills yourself :D"

end of over 186 runs

Hardik to Karthik, 1 run

short and wide outside off, but takes the pace off it again. DK crunches another cut, but the fielder at deep point came in there after the last ball

17.5
Hardik to Karthik, no run

slower ball, wide outside off. DK winds up to hit it straight, but the pace (or lack of it) does him in. Under edges it to Kishan. Hardik asks him to hold on to the ball

38 off 14

17.4
4
Hardik to Karthik, FOUR runs

good length outside off, and cut hard! Just past point, and beats the sweeper cover fielder as well!

17.3
Hardik to Karthik, no run

good length on off, and all DK can do is defend it towards the non-striker. Tight line, and the batsman gives it the respect it deserves

Narine can still strike it at the death. He goes at 143 since 2015

17.2
1
Hardik to Narine, 1 run

full on off, and Narine backs away to muscle it towards deep midwicket. Gets off the mark

17.1
Hardik to Narine, no run

slower ball full outside off, and Narine's big wind up doesn't connect. Inside edges it to the keeper

Bumrah to Karthik, 4 leg byes

what did that come off?! Yorker outside leg, and it's a really quick delivery. DK can't connect, and the ball comes off his boot. Kishan dives to his left but can't get his hands to it either. Important runs for KKR to end the 17th

16.5

Bumrah to Karthik, FOUR runs

full outside off, and DK carves it over point. Bends his knee to get under the ball, and then drives over the infield
