Mumbai Indians (MI) marched to the No.4 spot in the VIVO IPL 2018 Points Table with another win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Mumbai crashed Kolkata by 102 runs at the latter’s den, at Eden Gardens. The Mumbai victory was set up by a hurricane knock from teenaged Ishan Kishan, who belted 62 off just 21 balls. In process, he became the joint fastest half centurion for MI.

KKR were dismal on field, dropping as many as three catches. Responding to MI’s 210, KKR were shot out for 108. Let us glance at the marks out of 10 for the players.
