The 56th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 took place between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Monday, May 8. The Shreyas Iyer-led side secured a 52-run victory at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai.

After being put in to bat by Rohit Sharma, KKR put on a fifty-run opening stand for the first time this tournament. However, a stellar five-wicket haul by Jasprit Bumrah led to a rather poor outing in the final ten overs of the first innings.

With barely any contribution with the bat after the top three, KKR stumbled to 165-8 after 20 overs.

MI's chase started off on a poor note following Rohit Sharma's controversial dismissal. Ishan Kishan scored a gritty half-century but was short of partners. Kieron Pollard's finishing woes persisted as MI finished well below the target with a score of 113 and failed to register their third win in succession.
