113/10 (17.3)
KKR won by 52 runs.
Player of the match: Jasprit Bumrah
 
Right then, KKR live to see another day in this tournament - with still a mathematical chance of qualification. They will, of course, hope that RCB and RR lose all their remaining matches. Seems like a tough ask but hope is all they have. As for MI, they are back to losing ways audit has just been a season to forget for them, hasn't it? Well, that is all that we have for you from this IPL game. Join us back tomorrow as the action moves to the MCA Stadium in Pune where the Lucknow Super Giants take on the Gujarat Titans in a top-of-the-table clash. Until next time then, this is me, Maanas Upadhyay, and Shashwat Kumar, bidding you adieu. Good night!
Jasprit Bumrah (Man of the Match): When you contribute, it is always a good feeling but the important thing is for the team to win. We were in a good position but we couldn't get it done. That is the way it is. I don't keep track of figures or goals, my aim is to follow the process and have a good mindset. Sometimes you don't get wickets but you can't get desperate - you just need to stick to the process. Just want to contribute to the team in whatever way I can - sometimes it is bowling economically, sometimes it is taking wickets. We came close in lot of games but couldn't close the game. Last two games were pretty good. You take the learning from this season and try to rectify it next season. Just try to go hard in whatever games are left. 
Shreyas Iyer (winning captain): If you see the matches that we lost previously, we had lost with a huge margin so coming back and winning by a big margin, it is really satisfying. We got a great start in the powerplay, even Nitish came in and took on the bowlers. It was difficult for the new batters to come in. Even when we went in to bowl, we were going to cramp MI by picking early wickets. We discuss with the coaches and the CEO is also involved in the team selections. The players are very supportive in the decision making. I'm really happy with this. As you see the win, it was comprehensive. When I spoke to the players, they were really charged up to win the game. When you are on the losing side, it plays on your mind. I want to keep up with the same momentum. 
Rohit Sharma: I think we would take that total any day on that kind of pitch. To see how things unfolded in the second half, it was a great effort in the field by the boys. Disappointed with the way we batted chasing a par score on that pitch and on that ground. We are playing our fourth game here so we know what to expect. It is a good pitch and we know the seam bowlers will get some help. I thought we did not bat well, and we did not get enough partnerships. (On whether they could have restricted KKR to a lower total) I don't think so. They were hundred runs in the first 10-11 overs. It was a great effort from the entire bowling unit; the batters let us down today. We have lacked the consistency throughout the season
Mumbai Indians 113/10 (17.3) lose to Kolkata Knight Riders by 52 runs

Ishan Kishan 51(43) | Pat Cummins 3-22(4) | Andre Russell 2-22(2.3)
Tim Southee 1-10(3) | Varun Chakravarthy 1-22(3)

A horrid batting performance by the Mumbai Indians comes to an end as they crash to their ninth loss of the tournament. These are the most defeats MI has ever faced in a season and they have messed up a straightforward run chase after being exceptional with the ball in the first half of the match. 

Lack of partnerships proved to be MI's downfall as they kept losing wickets in clumps and at regular intervals. Skipper Rohit Sharma departed in the very first over. Tilak Varma, playing at three tonight, could not make much of a contribution. Suryakumar was missed dearly and his replacement, Ramandeep Singh, trudged along to a 16-ball 12 before his misery was ended by Russell. 

Tim David played a few impressive shots but his struggles against quality spin are well-documented, leading to his downfall. Kieron Pollard tried to play his part but lack of support from the other end prevented him from doing so. A freakish show at the end, with the batters going three absolute suicidal runs went against MI as the Knight Riders were absolutely brilliant in the field. 

MI will surely be disappointed with this and Jasprit Bumrah, after that special performance, will end up on the losing side. Back to the drawing board for them and they will need to figure out how to control the middle overs in the absence of Suryakumar. Meanwhile, KKR live to see another day in the tournament and this massive win has significantly boosted their net run-rate as well, allowing them to leap over CSK and PBKS to be placed seventh on the table. 
17.3 Andre Russell to Riley Meredith, OUT! THAT WILL BE THAT! THIS IS SIMPLY STUNNING! Back of a length delivery on leg stump. Meredith fends it into the leg side and then calls Bumrah for the single. Rinku picks it up sharply and then throws down the stumps at the batter's end! MI's season summed up in a matter of minutes! Absolute pandemonium here at the DY Patil Stadium!

17.2 Andre Russell to Kieron Pollard, DROPPED! OH MY WORD! HARA KIRI! SOMEONE MIGHT BE OUT HERE! POLLARD WALKS BACK! Back of a length delivery on middle and leg stump. Pollard swings like a rusty gate and sends the ball into space. When it comes down, Jackson makes a meal of it. But guess what, MI make a bigger hash of it. The cameras aren't even looking and somehow Pollard manages to run himself out at what might be the batter's end!

16.6 Pat Cummins to Kumar Kartikeya, OUT! OH MY GOODNESS! Length delivery outside off stump. Kartikeya walks across his stumps and chalks it towards deep backward square leg. Pollard calls him through for a suicidal second run and Kartikeya is at least a mile short of his crease on the second run.

Cummins to continue

Timeout! Four overs to go in the contest and boy, MI have dearly missed Suryakumar Yadav tonight. A complete collapse and Pollard will have to take it upon his shoulders to carry MI across the line tonight, if they are to win this. Expect all remaining overs to be bowled by pacers here and MI will need to find a way of negotiating them while also keeping up with the required run-rate. Can Pollard do the unthinkable again?
