    DInesh Karthik is turning things on in Wankhade but the only things of worry is that he is fighting a lone battle and he is doing it quite well. KKR need 23 off the last over. Can he become the hero again?

    DROPPEED! Mayank MArkande drops an easy catch of Robin Uthappa to Hardik Pandya’s bowling. MI needed this wicket, it would have created immense pressure on KKR.

    OUT! Just when things were looking on the rise for Chris Lynn, he falls for 17. This season has seen a lot of players falling prey to the pull shot, and Lynn was no different. He went for his third four and handed Jasprit Bumrah an easy catch. Robin Uthappa is out in the middle.
