Mumbai Indians register comprehensive win against Kolkata Knight Rider's with 19 balls to spare

Mumbai Indians (MI) beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 8 wickets, with 19 balls of the chase remaining. KKR, batting first, scored 148/5 in 20 overs. They suffered a top order collapse, with no one except Shubman Gill (21) troubling the scorers much. Rahul Chahar picked 2 wickets in a over to reduce KKR to 42/4. Pat Cummins (53*) and Eoin Morgan (39*) built a much-needed partnership in the second half of the innings to bring some respectability to the score.
 

Rohit Sharma (35) got the chase off with some boundaries, before his partner Quinton de Kock (78*) took over the bulk of the scoring responsibility. Hardik Pandya (21*) put on an exhibition of attacking shots towards the end as MI won with 19 balls to spare.Earlier, in the day, Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik handed over the Kolkata Knight Riders captaincy position to England’s World Cup winning skipper Eoin Morgan. The franchise released a statement regarding it, in which it was mentioned that the Indian would look to focus more on his batting. The veteran Indian wicketkeeper-batsman’s captaincy had come under intense criticism due to the team’s erratic campaign so far.
