Batting first, Mumbai Indians scored 152 runs in the allotted 20 overs. KKR’s innings ended with 142 runs in reply. Mumbai won the match by 10 runs.
KKR batsmen have been batting well from the beginning of this day. At one time Kolkata needed 31 runs from 30 balls. At that time Nitish Rana and Shakib Al Hasan were out in two consecutive overs and then the frustration came down in the KKR batting line up. Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik went down to bat but failed to win the match. Mumbai won the match thanks to Bumrah and Bolt’s great bowling in the death over.
Disappointing performance. to say the leastapologies to all the fans!
– Shah Rukh Khan (amsiamsrk)
On this day, Kolkata came very close to victory and lost which made KKR supporters very disappointed. Because Kolkata could not win against Mumbai Indians for many years, KKR had a chance to break that shameful record by winning this match but KKR failed. Despite coming very close to victory, Kolkata remained elusive. And this deeply disappointed KKR co-owner and Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan. “Disappointing performance, I can only say sorry KKR supporters,” he tweeted after the match.
