IPL 2020 Highlights, MI vs KKR Match, Full Cricket Score: Rohit, de Kock seal Mumbai's easy win

23:17 (IST)

Right then, the night belongs to Mumbai Indians. They delivered with the ball and then ensured they chase down the target with ease. Quinton de Kock played another good knock while Mumbai bowlers also put up impressive performance. 

That's all we have for you tonight. Tomorrow is a double header – RR vs RCB followed by DC vs CSK. We will bring you all the updates from both the matches so do join us. Goodbye!   

23:13 (IST)

Quinton de Kock: "Those leg-side shots are just one of the shots I have in my armoury. I don't plan to do that, it is just natural. It is just about keeping my balance and playing them as I see them. Last game I was disappointed I didn't finish the game. To be honest I have played this game enough to know you can't do anything about it if you drop one. You have to carry on and do the best for your team. I am a better keeper than that, and don't drop catches on purpose so that is nothing to worry about."

23:12 (IST)

Rohit Sharma: "It is special, gives us confidence. In the second-half of the tournament, I think teams batting second will most of the matches. I believe a lot in match-ups. It has gives us success. I enjoy batting with Quinton. He is straightforward. Most of the times I take the back seat. I have a role to play in the squad. I need to let Quinny bat free and not worry about what the team needs from him."

23:11 (IST)

Quinton de Kock is the Man of the Match

22:55 (IST)

Eoin Morgan:

"We weren’t in the race at all really, being four or five down. Managed to get a score on the board but when Mumbai are like that, they are hard to stop. Full credit to Mumbai, they played well. We have lessons to learn."  

22:50 (IST)

Done and dusted! Mumbai chase down 149 with eight wickets in hand and 19 balls to spare. KKR have been outplayed by the best team of this season. This is Mumbai's 21st win over Kolkata in IPL.

Scores are now level. Hardik cuts hard and gets the boundary

22:45 (IST)

After 16 overs,Mumbai Indians 141/2 ( Quinton de Kock (W) 76 , Hardik Pandya 15)

Cummins is back and the first ball is a slower one down the leg. Just one for de Kock. Hardik now takes charge and takes Cummins to cleaners. Some timing on those boundary hits. Eight needed now. Next could be the last over.

22:44 (IST)

Sensational! This time, Hardik flicks it but does it so well that the ball crosses the square boundary! 

22:43 (IST)

Stand and deliver again! Hardik hits this one over Cummins' head for another boundary.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Mumbai Indians vs Kolkata Knight Riders latest updates: Done and dusted! Mumbai chase down 149 with eight wickets in hand and 19 balls to spare. KKR have been outplayed by the best team of this season. This is Mumbai's 21st win over Kolkata in IPL.

 Preview: Mumbai Indians take on Kolkata Knight Riders in the 32nd match of the Indian Premier League in Abu Dhabi.

Mumbai Indians love playing against KKR. Before the start of the season, they had their best win percentage (for teams against whom they have played 10 or more matches) against Kolkata – 76 percent, with 19 wins from 25 matches. They continued that dominance with a comprehensive 49-run win over them earlier in this edition at Abu Dhabi and would be looking to get a double on them this season again at the same venue.

And with the way they are playing, there is every chance they can achieve that double. They are on a winning spree and will go into the match on the back of four consecutive wins. In the last match, they beat the formidable DC and it's the all-round contribution that was again the key.

Quinton de Kock has found form, Suryakumar Yadav has looked impressive with two fifties in a row. Ishan Kishan has also timed the ball well. Rohit has been a bit inconsistent but the last time he played against KKR, he made 80 off 54 balls and was named Man of the Match. The middle and lower order can tear attacks apart. So KKR have a lot to ponder about. They need their bowlers to step up after the thumping loss against RCB.

On a slowish Sharjah surface, they conceded an above-par 194 against RCB in their last match and then crumbled to 112/9 in the chase. Their batsmen need to fire after the abject performance. With Tom Banton coming in, Rahul Tripathi was again pushed down the order against RCB but they would look to bring him back to open the innings considering the fact that he had hit 81 against CSK when promoted up the order. Nitish Rana, Eoin Morgan, Andre Russell all need to raise their game. Maybe KKR should look to push Russell up the order in order to get the best out of him. With the pitches getting slower, KKR might look to bring back Kuldeep Yadav again.

With the form and confidence that MI are in and considering their record over KKR, they start off as favourites.
