Mumbai Indians’ (MI) fate writes them blockbuster scripts. They once again smashed their favourite opponents, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), to plump to register their 18th victory against them. It does not stop there. The crushing 102-run win now has enabled Mumbai to replace Kolkata for the 4th spot in the points table. If the win on Sunday was a lucky sneak, this one at Eden Gardens was as comprehensive as it gets.

If Suryakumar Yadav laid the platform for Mumbai, it was Ishan Kishan’s belligerence that helped Mumbai scale and Ben Cutting, later, gave the innings the apt finish.
