A good day all-round for Mumbai Indians as they jump several places on the points table after their 49-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders, dislodging Rajasthan Royals from the top spot. And that brings us to the end of our coverage of Match 5 of Indian Premier League 2020. We shift our attention now to the Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore clash that takes place at Dubai tomorrow. We hope you enjoyed our coverage of today’s match. On behalf of my colleague Shubham, I bid you all good night!

Rohit Sharma is Man of the Match for scoring 80 off 54 balls. 

Rohit: It was all about coming out and executing our plans. It was about getting ruthless out there. We knew wicket was good to bat on so it was important to be on the money. I back myself to play that shot (pull). Practiced quite a bit as well. I am glad it came out pretty well today. We have not played much crucket and six months is a long time and luckily we got some practice games. We wanted pace attack to be as strong as possible as we did not know it will happen in UAE. My job becomes easy when you have bowlers like these. It is pretty tough to be playing in humid conditions. In the end of the innings, I was a bit tired. It is a lesson that once you are in, you should continue to bat till the end. 

23:44 (IST)

Dinesh Karthik, KKR captain: It was a pretty rusty day to be honest. Don’t want to get too analytical about it. Boys could’ve done better. Couple of the guys just finished their quarantine today, so it’s hard. (On tweaking the KKR top order) Haven’t had the conversation with Baz yet, so will let you know before the next game.

23:40 (IST)

After 20 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 146/9 ( Kuldeep Yadav 1 , )

Rahul Chahar bowls out the final over, giving away four off it as Mumbai Indians record a sizeable 49-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders to bring their losing run in the UAE to an end as well as collect their first points of IPL 2020.

A good day all-round for the title holders with the captain bouncing back to form and their champion bowler getting his rhythm back, virtually bringing the contest to an end by getting rid of Russell and Morgan in one over.

OUT! Mavi's stumped off the last ball of the innings while looking to go downtown over long on. And with that, Mumbai Indians complete a fine 49-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders! KKR 146/9

After 19 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 142/8 ( Shivam Mavi 6 , Kuldeep Yadav 0)

Excellent over from Pattinson to make up for the run-fest in Bumrah’s fourth as he gives away just three runs off it while bringing Cummins’ little cameo to an end off the second ball, finishing the pick of the Mumbai bowlers with 2/25. KKR need 54 to win off six balls.

OUT! And so ends Cummins' entertaining cameo as he ends up paying the price while going for a shot too many. Doesn't get the distance on the slog and ends up getting caught by Hardik at deep midwicket off his compatriot's bowling. KKR 141/8

After 18 overs,Kolkata Knight Riders 139/7 ( Pat Cummins 33 , Shivam Mavi 4)

Bumrah’s excellent figures get completely ruined in his final over as he gets smashed for four sixes by Cummins, conceding 27 off it to finish with figures of 2/32. Cummins, who was taken apart by the Mumbai Indians batsmen earlier today, is certainly making up for it with the bat, giving KKR an idea of what he can offer down the order. KKR need 57 off 12 balls.

SIX! Bumrah gets smashed for four sixes in his final over! Cummins smashes this straight over the bowler's head! KKR 139/7

SIX! Real poor stuff from Bumrah in his final over as he fires a full toss at Cummins, who smacks it over wide long on for a third maximum in this over. KKR 132/7

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians latest updates: Rahul Chahar bowls out the final over, giving away four off it as Mumbai Indians record a sizeable 49-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders to bring their losing run in the UAE to an end as well as collect their first points of IPL 2020. A good day all-round for the title holders with the captain bouncing back to form and their champion bowler getting his rhythm back, virtually bringing the contest to an end by getting rid of Russell and Morgan in one over.

Preview: Mumbai Indians would be looking to bounce back after a defeat in their IPL opener when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the fifth match of the tournament.

It was the same old story in their IPL opener as they lost to Chennai Super Kings by five wickets at Abu Dhabi. The loss meant that it was eighth season in a row MI had failed to win their opening match.

It was a match where CSK batsmen Ambati Rayudu and Faf du Plessis gave a lesson to the MI batsmen on how to bat on slow surfaces. They mixed caution with aggression perfectly and applied themselves really well.

MI got off to a good start but then faltered. Lack of application and poor shot selection meant that they were about 15-20 runs short after posting 162/9.

Defending that total, the bowlers lacked incision. Bumrah was taken apart and their potential banana skin - the spin department - didn't click and went for 73 from four overs taking just two wickets.

It's just one match though and MI won't be looking to make drastic changes to the team, don't be surprised if they go in with the same eleven.

KKR, led by Dinesh Karthik, on the other hand, will be looking to get off to a positive start.

They have an exciting batting line-up which is their strength as well. That top and middle order looks ominous with the likes of Shubman Gill, Sunil Narine, Eoin Morgan, Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell.

The bowling department will be spearheaded by Pat Cummins. Kuldeep Yadav brings experience in the spin department and he will be looking to bounce back after a tough last season. Apart from these two, the bowling department seems short of experience with the likes of Sandeep Warrier, Kamlesh Nagarkotti, Shivam Mavi, Prasidh Krishna, Varun Chakravarthy, M Siddharth. But it's a massive opportunity for them to get noticed on the big stage. The four foreign players KKR might go with are Narine, Morgan, Russell and Cummins.

MI might have a fair bit of idea about the pitch and conditions having played earlier at the venue against CSK.

It's a clash of two batting heavy sides and it will come down to which bowling side is smart enough to handle the pressure. All the ingredients point towards a fascinating contest.
