Commentary

Mumbai won by 5 wkts | Kolkata Knight Riders Vs Mumbai Indians Live Score, 33rd Match

Mumbai now have a 9-2 W/L advantage over Kolkata. The defending champs will wonder what has gone wrong this season as they slip towards exit. The cricket continues with Chennai taking on Hyderabad in a topper's clash tomorrow. Do join us for all the action. For now, cheers and bye..
Smith: 'I am very happy. I just wanted to get myself in and pick up the pace after juding the nature of the track. Narine is their most important bowler and we wanted to just play him out. Looking forward to the next few matches as well.'
Dwayne Smith is the MoM for his 62
Rohit Sharma: 'Very happy with the way we fought today. We did not get a good start, but coming back from that poistion was very great. We knew that we had the quality in the team to deliver the goods, we pulled things back in the last 5-6 overs of their batting. We wanted to get off to a good start, the pitch tended to get slow and low as the match progressed. Happy to get my captaincy off to a good start, was a bit nervous towards the end but I knew he had the match under our grasp.'
Gambhir: 'It was a very good track to bat on. I thought 160 was a very good score. Credit to them, they planned the chase very well. We have not been able to cross the finishing line. This is always a good batting track, today's match proved it.'
Pollard: 'It was good that Narine did not bowl the final over. I would have just gone swinging hard if he had bowled it. They were one bowler short, the injury to Kallis hampered them. My plan was just to play Narine out, he always bowls well on this track.'
Relief in the Mumbai camp. Kolkata look disconsolate; they have slipped to their 5th loss in the tournament. A mixed day for Harbhajan, he was clobbered for 26 runs in the 1st over of the match and then came back to hit the match winning blow for his team. Credit as well to Dwayne Smith, he set up the launching pad before Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard set them up for the win. Kolkata fought back through Narine, who has regained the purple cap with an excellent spell of 3/17, but the visitors just about held their nerve to seal victory.
19.5 Rajat Bhatia to Ambati Rayudu 4
FOUR, Mumbai win, Bhatia misses his length, offers a juicy full toss, Rayudu makes room and slaps it over extra cover, no chance for the man at long off
19.4 Rajat Bhatia to Harbhajan Singh 1
1 run, full and outside off, Singh gets forward and drives it to long off for a single. 2 needed of 2 now
19.4 Rajat Bhatia to Harbhajan Singh 1
3 needed from 3
19.3 Rajat Bhatia to Harbhajan Singh 6
SIX, Is this one the game breaker? Length ball from Bhatia, Singh clears his left leg and clouts it way over wide long on for a maximum
19.2 Rajat Bhatia to Ambati Rayudu 1
1 run, Tiwary almost plucked a stunner! This was flat and outside off, Rayudu shimmied down the track and flat bats it towards long off, Tiwary rushed in from long off, dives forward but the ball just drops in front of him. He does well to save some runs for his team, he looks to have picked up an injury though
Harbhajan Singh, right handed bat, comes to the crease
19.1 Rajat Bhatia to Kieron Pollard W
out Caught by Manoj Tiwary!! Is there another twist in the tale? Pollard is a goner, it was a slower ball from Bhatia, drifts it onto Pollard's pads, Pollard was very early on his flick, gets a leading edge that goes high and towards long off. Tiwary was the man out there, he keeps his eyes on the ball and pouches a safe catch. Pollard c Manoj Tiwary b Bhatia 33(24) [4s-2 6s-1]
5 wickets down for MUM. Out batsman is Kieron Pollard
Rajat Bhatia [3.0-0-20-0] is back into the attack
