Highlights IPL 2017 MI vs KKR, cricket scores and results: Kolkata snatch defeat from the jaws of victory
  • 01:18 (IST)

    Thanks for being with for the match between KKR and Mumbai Indians and what a match it turned out to be. The best match of the IPL this season so far hands down. Mumbai stayed calm in crunch situations while KKR seemed like having a nervous breakdown to lose the match. But the crowd went home thoroughly entertained. Do join us tomorrow for another match in IPL 2017. It's Kings XI Punjab vs Royal Challengers Bangalore from Indore's Holkar stadium tomorrow and we would be back as usual with all live scores and updates. Looking forward to your company for that match. Till then, it's goodbye.

    Nitesh Rana adjudged tha Man of the Match for his 29-ball 50 that totally changed the complexion of the game. What a prospect he seems to be.

  • Did you know?

    Since 2016, five matches have been played at Wankhede in IPL and teams who have chased won all the matches.

  • MI win!!! What a turnaround! Pandya and Rana do it for the home side. The roof goes of Wankhede. But one big question comes to my mind. What were KKR doing in the field? A misfield costing three runs and then a dropped catch. Big opportunities to pass in the last over. But credit to Mumbai Indians for never giving up! What a game and as Ravi Shastri would have presumably said cricket is the real winner!

  • 23:53 (IST)

  • 23:52 (IST)

    Mumbai Indians 180/6 in 19.5 overs. Pandya 29 off 11 and Harbhajan 1 off 1  

    Boult has the ball for the last over. The atmosphere is electric. This calls for nerves of steel and rest assured Pandya has them. Pandya goes hard down the ground. Oh dear! Suryakumar lets that slip between his legs for a boundary. The worst thing to have happened to KKR now. Boult bowls a short one. it goes past Pandya. No run. Pandya skies one. Chance for Rishi Dhawan. But he slips and drops a sitter. What drama. The next ball is turned around by Pandya for four and that's the game for MI. 

    KKR hands the match to Mumbai on a platter. A bundle of nerves they were in the last few overs. They have nobody to blame but themselves. Perhaps deserved to lose. Chris Lynn's injury would keep them anxious.    

  • 23:52 (IST)

  • A unique celebration by Hardik Pandya. The roar is defeaning inside the stadium as Hardik takes Mumbai home. What a thriller to start off for Wankhede. The Pandya brothers with crucial contributions. It's 11.49 here and people are rushing to catch the trains. 

  • Hardik Pandya:

    In IPL-2016: Innings-9, Runs-44, 4s-4, 6s-0
    In IPL-2017: Innings-2, Runs-64, 4s-4, 6s-6

  • Its all happening. A misfield at long on and the crowd is elated. 5 needed Off 4. Boult bowls a bouncer which is left alone. Booos ring inside the stadium. Then Hardik gets a top edge, every one is at the edge of the seats but it is dropped. A huge roar. 

  • Defeaning roar as Hardik scampers through for 2. It felt as if it was a six.

  • Fans on their feet as Hardik smashes a six of Ankit. Nobody is sitting now. People here have had their money worth. Now they need an MI win to have a sound sleep

  • 23:45 (IST)

  • 23:43 (IST)

    After 19 overs,Mumbai Indians 168/6 ( Hardik Pandya 19 , Harbhajan Singh 1)

    Rajpoot comes for the penultimate over. An audacious Dilscoop by Rana which would have made even Tillakaratne Dilshan proud. The next ball is a full toss. Rana miscues but the ball lands in no man's land and has enough legs on it to roll to the boundary. The Wankhede is going ballistic. But what an anti-climax. Rana hits a full one straight to Narine at backward point. But a tremendous innings by Rana nonetheless. Harbhajan is the next man in. Rajpoot bowls another loose delivery. A low full toss hammered by Pandya for six over midwicket. 19 runs in this over too. 11 runs needed off the last over. 

  • The crowd goes wild as Hardik smashes a full toss into stands. This is thrilling stuff.

  • Nitish Rana departs! Big wicket for KKR at just the right moment. Harbhajan walks out. That always means some action. Squeeqy bum time!!

  • 23:40 (IST)

    OUT! Rana goes, caught at backward point. MI 160/6 in the 19th over. 

    Nitish Rana c Narine b Rajpoot 50(29)

  • 50 up with a 4. Rana gets a rousing applause. 20 needed Off 10. Then there is a wide. The people are loving it here inside Wankhede.

  • Rana hits a 6. The crowd goes berserk. Brilliant paddle.

  • A six and a four from Rana has breathed life into the MI fans. 30 off 12 still looks a daunting task. Mumbai .... Mumbai chants echo inside. Some were taking their position to take off from the stadium but halted after those 10 off 2 balls from Rana and 6 from Hardik. ". Abhi possible hai," says an anxious MI fan.

  • Woakes all over the place with his length and MI have an opening in the game. Still a tall order, but the crowd believe now. They are making a lot of noise and that could just propel Mumbai home

  • 23:36 (IST)

    After 18 overs,Mumbai Indians 149/5 ( Nitish Rana 40 , Hardik Pandya 12)

    Boult comes back for the 18th over. The  first ball is a full toss. Rana misses out. Rana gets stuck into Boult. A low fuill toss goes for four and then there is a six over backward square leg. Change of pace in the next ball on the next ball and Rana doesn't time it at all. Crafty from Boult. The last ball is deposited in the stands by Pandya with utter disdain. Remember his last over blitz against Pune in the last match? 19 runs in that over. A huge one for Mumbai. They still have hope. Mumbai need 30 runs from the last two overs.

  • 23:30 (IST)

    After 17 overs,Mumbai Indians 130/5 ( Nitish Rana 29 , Hardik Pandya 5)

    Woakes to bowl the 17th over. A short one from him, Pollard swings at that rising delivery, gets a top edge and substitute Rishi Dhawan takes an easy catch at third man. That is a body blow for Mumbai. Hardik Pandya the new man in to join Ran ain the middle. Rana plays an attacking shot and gets a four through extra cover. He had got handt runs in the last match too and looks a good prospect. Meanwhile there is a run out chance, but Woakes doesn't collect that throw cleanly and breaks the stumps with his hand. Respite for Mumbai. Pandya cracks the last ball to the point boundary. A fierce cut that.   

  • Pollard departs!!! Massive wicket for KKR. Woakes has been very good today. Bowled with a lot of discipline. Has been rewarded with the wicket of Pollard. The crowd is quite deflated by the wicket as it seems MI have left themselves too much to do. Hardik Pandya is out in the middle. He is certainly capable, but will he deliver?

  • 23:29 (IST)

  • Huge moment in the match as Woakes removes the dangerous Pollard. Chants of KKR.....KKR echo inside the stadium. MI need Hardik Pandya to repeat last match's heroics

  • 23:24 (IST)

    OUT! Pollard goes, caught at third man. MI 119/5 in the 17th over. 

    Pollard c (sub)Rishi Dhawan b Woakes 17(17) 

  • Did you know?

    Kieron Pollard becomes the fourth player to score 2000 runs for Mumbai Indians in IPL. The other three are Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and Sachin Tendulkar. 

  • 23:22 (IST)

    After 16 overs,Mumbai Indians 119/4 ( Nitish Rana 23 , Kieron Pollard 17)

    Narine in for his last over. Two runs off the first two balls. An uppish sweep off the third ball. A valiant effort by the fielder at deep mid wicket. Pollard gets an inside edge off the last ball. There a near fumble, but the fielder at fine leg recovers. No run. Only four runs from that over. Kolkata have the edge now. They would be pretty happy if they can restrict the fours and sixes. 60 runs needed off the last 4 overs. And that's a strategic timeout.  

  • We are down to the final five overs and the crowd are now getting edgy. Expect the decibel levels to fluctuate now. KKR have done well to keep MI tied down but with Pollard at the crease they are always under the threat of an onslaught. Exciting times!

  • 23:17 (IST)

    After 15 overs,Mumbai Indians 115/4 ( Nitish Rana 21 , Kieron Pollard 15)

    Woakes into the attack. Pollard swivels and gets a four at fine leg. He has got 2000 IPL runs now. Rana tries a slog sweep and the ball spoons to Narine at backward square leg. It looked out for a moment, but there was no bat involved.  A wild swing by Pollard off the last ball, but he doesn't connect. Only seven runs from that over. Aod one in the context of the match.

  • 23:13 (IST)

    After 14 overs,Mumbai Indians 108/4 ( Nitish Rana 19 , Kieron Pollard 10)

    Kuldeep in for his last over. There is a slip in place. There is some miscommunication between the MI batsmen in the middle. Pollard advances down the pitch and is sent back by the non striker. He takes ages to turn, but Yusuf Pathan's throw is weak and off target. Gautam Gamhir is furious. Another misfield at deep mid wicket allows the batsmen to take two. Only three runs from that over. Kuldeep completes his quota. One wicket for 35 off four overs.

  • There is good sales and marketing going around inside the stadium. The ice cream sellers shouting , " Choco chip ice cream, Mumbai Indians jeetne wala hai, ice cream le lo." A fan asks "Nahi jeeta to?" The ice cream seller replies, "paisa wapas."

  • Mind games going around. Seemed like Pollard was taking too much time to face the next delivery, he then points something to umpire, Yusuf, at point, rushes all the way to Kuldeep, has a couple of words and then scampers back.

  • 23:07 (IST)

  • 23:06 (IST)

    After 13 overs,Mumbai Indians 105/4 ( Nitish Rana 18 , Kieron Pollard 8)

    Rajpoot bowls the 13th over and gives KKR another breakthrough as he gets Krunal caught by the keeper off the pads. Pollard is the new man in and is immsdiately rapped on the pads. A shout for LBW, but the ball was going down. The fourth ball of the over disappears over midwicket for a flat six. That's the first shot in anger by the big Pollard. A play and a miss off the last ball.

  • Ankit Rajpoot is rewarded for some excellent bowling as he takes a timely wicket for KKR. Krunal Pandya who was a potential dangerman is back in the hut, but Pollard arrives on the scene and the Wankhede crowd go from shock to excitement in minutes. Can Pollard be the hero for MI again?

  • Sachin....Sachin rings inside the stadium as the Master is shown on the screen. That's the loudest chant we have heard today.

  • 23:03 (IST)

    OUT! Krunal is caught by the keeper on the leg side off Rajpoot. MI 97/4 in the 13th over. 

    Krunal Pandya c Uthappa b Rajpoot 11(6)

  • 23:02 (IST)

    After 12 overs,Mumbai Indians 97/3 ( Nitish Rana 18 , Krunal Pandya 11)

    Kuldeep continues. Krunal dabs one down to third man for a three. Rana really gets stuck into the Chinaman and gets a four and a six in the final two balls.   

  • 22:59 (IST)

    After 11 overs,Mumbai Indians 83/3 ( Nitish Rana 7 , Krunal Pandya 8)

    Rajpoot bowls the 11th over and Pandya gets two consecutive fours on the last two balls, both pulled to midwicket. The second one is a bit uppish, but goes over the man at midwicket. Something to cheer about for MI after the Rohit Sharma dismisal.

  • 22:58 (IST)

  • Another howler!! Rohit Sharma is adjudged out and replays show there was a clear inside edge. Some people in the crowd behind me didn't need the replays as one of them claimed that he heard two noises. That's either a blatant lie or extra terrestrial hearing sense. I am in the third tier and I couldn't even hear the bowler appeal. However it was a shocking decision and the MI supporters have gone quite. But evidences of KKR support in the stadium can now be heard with KKR! KKR! chants doing rounds.

  • 22:55 (IST)

    After 10 overs,Mumbai Indians 74/3 ( Nitish Rana 6 , Krunal Pandya 0)

    Narine continues. Misfield by Kuldeep at backward point, there is no run. Rohit is given out LBW off the fifth ball. It is a horrendous decision by the umpire. Rohit Sharma got a big inside edge on that one. He is furious after being given out. The crowd is agitated. But Rohit has to depart. There is no DRS, you know. But a potentially game-changing dismissal that. Krunal Pandya the new man in.

  • 22:55 (IST)

    OUT! Rohit Sharma given out LBW to Narine. A howler from the umpire though as the batsman had got a big inside edge. MI 74/3 in the 10th over.

Preview: Mumbai Indians would not want to read too much into their good track record against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) after the latter's dominating display in their opening game when the two sides lock horns in a Indian Premier League (IPL) game at the Wankhede Stadium here on Sunday.

KKR cantered to a 10-wicket win against Gujarat Lions on Friday night with Gautam Gambhir (76 not out) and Chris Lynn (93 not out) taking their rivals bowlers to the cleaners.

Chasing 184 to win, KKR reached the target with 31 balls to spare, underlining their title credentials from the word go.

Mumbai, on the other hand, failed to overcome the challenge from Rising Pune Supergiant in their opening game, losing by seven wickets as Pune skipper Steve Smith stamped his class with a brilliant unbeaten 84 to guide his team to victory.

In the head to head count, Mumbai clearly have the upper hand with 13 wins in 18 ties to KKR's five.

At the Wankhede, KKR have won just once, when they prevailed by 32 runs in 2012.

Mumbai would be desperate to get back the services of Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Malinga who took a hattrick in the second T20 against Bangladesh recently, his first in the shortest format of the game.

Malinga, who is the all time highest wicket taker in the IPL with 143 scalps to his name, has three hattricks in One Day Internationals.

With Tim Southee, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah trying hard in the last game to get more wickets -- Mumbai could just send three of the Pune batsmen in the dressing room -- Malinga's addition would surely add teeth to their bowling line-up.

KKR meanwhile, according to skipper Gambhir, fared well in their bowling department by restricting a top-heavy batting of Gujarat to 183 on a wicket that offered little assistance.

Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers, taking two wickets and conceding just 25 runs in his four overs.

But it was KKR's batting that left everyone talking. Not losing a wicket and clobbering the Gujarat bowlers with disdain, Lynn and Gambhir showed imperial form, one that will give them a lot of confidence going into the next game.

The pair broke IPL's record of highest first wicket partnership previously held by Chris Gayle and Tillakaratne Dilshan (167) for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Pune Warriors.

Batting first in their opening game, Mumbai did not have any batsman getting past 40 runs with England opener Jos Buttler the highest scorer for the team at 38. Skipper Rohit Sharma would look to get back in form after an injury layoff, managing just three in the last game.

It remains to be seen whether KKR take off from where they left in the last game or Mumbai put a spanner in their works.
