  • The visiting side will be quite happy with its comeback but Kolkata will have to bat well to overhaul this score and the opening stand will be very important. Do stay tuned for the run chase which will begin shortly.
  • Just as it looked like Suryakumar was looking to launch he was dismissed by Andre Russell in the 15th over. Mumbai needed a big finish and the Pandya brothers tried really hard but they failed to launch an onslaught as Kolkata's death bowling was pretty pinpoint. Even Duminy failed to get going. Mumbai wickets were shared by the West Indian duo of Andre Russell and Sunil Narine while rest of the bowlers were economical.
  • Mumbai have posted a decent score on the board but they could have easily scored more had they not lost the plot in the middle phase. Once again, Suryakumar Yadav led Mumbai's charge. He scored his fourth fifty of this season and laid the platform for his team. He got good support from Lewis who scored a 28-ball 43 and shared a 91-run opening stand. Kolkata made a mini-comeback with back-to-back wickets, but Yadav continued on his merry way.
  • 19.6 Brilliant end to the final over. Krishna has impressed one and all by keeping his calm. Bowls another pacy delivery closer to the off stump, Hardik goes hard at it but only manages an inside edge on the leg side. They take a run. MUMBAI FINISH ON 181/4.

  • Hardik Pandya grabs the Man of the Match award for his all-round performance. That's all from this contest. But don't go anywhere as the second match of the evening is just around the corner. See you there!
  • Mumbai will be delighted with today's win. Their bowlers set the tone nicely in the Powerplay by picking two wickets and then in spite of the big partnership, they didn't lose hope. Hardik Pandya was the most impressive bowler while others also stepped up when it mattered the most. Altogether, a good performance by the defending champions.

Kolkata were looking in a fairly good position in the chase courtesy their partnership but the wicket of Uthappa turned things around in Mumbai's favour.
