MI vs KKR Highlights
It was a top effort by the Kolkata Knight Riders and especially their bowlers as they bowled out Mumbai Indians for only 113 and defended 165 to win the match by 52 runs and stay in the hunt for a Playoffs spot in the Indian Premier League 2022.
Though the chase didn't really start well for the Mumbai Indians as they lost Rohit Sharma early and Tailak Varma departed soon too. But Ishan Kishan at one end was keeping the hopes alive and even though Ramandeep Singh and Tim David departed in quick succession, the internet with which Pollard walked in, seemed like it was going to be a victory for the Mumbai side.
However, Pat Cummins broke the back of the chase by picking up three wickets in one over including that of Ishan Kishan and Daniel Sams and Pollard was left to do everything with the tailenders. He couldn't do it as he was run out of a ball on which his catch was dropped by Wicket-keeper sheldon jackson. in the end, another direct hit on the very next ball that over meant that Mumbai were all out for 113 in the 18th over.
Earlier in the evening after being asked to bat first., KKR had the best ever opening stand for them this season as Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer added 60 for the first wicket. Even Nitish Rana played well and Kolkata were cruising at 123-2 in the 14th over, all set to get to a 180-190 total.
However, Jasprit Buymrah bowled the best spell of his entire T20 career as he picked five wickets for 10 runs in his four overs and the men in purple could only manage to get 165-9 on board.
MI vs KKR Player of the Match: Jasprit Bumrah
Although he finished on the losing side, but Jasprit Bumrah's performance was one for the ages as he bowled one of the best spells in IPL history to concede only 10 runs even after picking five quality wickets and he picked three of them in one over without conceding even a run. For this rare spell of his, he was rightly chosen as the Player of the Match.
