    Mumbai win by 13 runs as they keep their hopes alive for the play offs. Krunal Pandya bowled a tight last over after taking a brilliant catch to dismiss Andre Russell. It was a risk to take but Rohit is good at pressure situations.

  • 7:39 PM IST

    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?

  • 7:16 PM IST

    Two quick wickets and MI are back in the game. However, things are not done yet with Dinesh Karthik and Andre Russell in the middle. The game is never over with these two in the middle.

  • 6:59 PM IST

    That dropped catch is costing MI the game here. Uthappa is smashing every ball to the boundary ropes. Nitish Rana is giving him good company from the non strikers end. MI desperately need a wicket here.

  • 6:47 PM IST

  • 6:30 PM IST

    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.

  • 6:14 PM IST

    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.

  • 6:03 PM IST

    Chris Lynn is out with a new partner in Shubman Gill. Gill impressed everyone with his knock against Chennai Super Kings at Eden Gardens. Mitchell McClenaghan bowls an impressive first over. This will be a interesting chase for Kolkata.

  • 5:46 PM IST

    KKR chase 182.

  • 5:45 PM IST

    That’s the end of MI innings. They had 95 runs on board in the first ten overs. They have added another 86 in the second half of their innings. The heat, and consistent bowling changes from DK restricted MI a bit.

    KKR have a poor record here versus MI. Will their batsmen stand up in a crunch chase? Join us in a bit…
  • 5:30 PM IST

    OUT! Krunal Pandya looking to smash 2 consecutive sixes to Sunial Narine has lost his wicket to him. JP Duminy gets a chance to bat, maybe Ben Cutting would be a better option here.

  • 5:19 PM IST

  • 5:18 PM IST

    OUT! Andre Russell dismisses Suryakumar for 59. He was struggling with the heat. He has done his job for the team. Krunal Pandya has been sent in to accompany his brother. Will MI reach 180?

  • 5:09 PM IST

  • 5:08 PM IST

    Narine makes Rohit his bunny yet again but Suryakumar is in no mood of stopping as he is joined by Hardik Pandya. With the spinners in action Hardik could be good in the middle. Suryakumar is having problems with the heat outside.

  • 4:57 PM IST

    50! Suryakumar Yadav has recorded his fourth half-century in the season. He has turned the opportunity of opening the innings into gold. He is also third in the orange cap list and can well go past Rayudu.

  • 4:48 PM IST

    OUT! KKR were desperately looking for a wicket and Andre Russell has provided it to them. Lewis was living om the edge and surviving but not this time. He finds a fielder in the 30-yard circle. Rohit walks in in the middle.

  • 4:33 PM IST

    The openers have added a good partnership, MI surely do not want to repeat the history of losing the momentum after the dismissal of the top order. KKR on the other hand need wickets.

  • 4:23 PM IST

    MI have covered up well from the Johnson over. MI do have a reputation of covering up and it seems they are doing it well. They have a long way to go though, their batting order would be interesting to see today.

  • 4:04 PM IST

    No Rohit Sharma again for the hosts. Suryakumar and Lewis have opened for Mumbai whereas Nitish Rana has opened the bowling for KKR and has conceded only a run in his first over. This is going to be an interesting contest.

  • 3:35 PM IST

    Mumbai Indians (XI): Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Jean-Paul Duminy, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah

  • 3:34 PM IST

    Kolkata Knight Riders (XI): Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Dinesh Karthik(wk/c), Andre Russell, Piyush Chawla, Mitchell Johnson, Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Yadav

  • 3:34 PM IST

    MI remain unchanged from last game. KKR make two changes, Nitish Rana and Prasidh Krishna come in.

  • 3:28 PM IST

    Pitch: “The wicket has a beautiful even covering of green grass and it’s a hard wicket to bat on – a traditional Mumbai surface. The white ball will shine and skid through. It has the red soil and the cracks might open later in the evening. Overall, a great surface to play on. Might be a high scoring encounter.”

  • 3:15 PM IST

    Did you know MI have not lost a single IPL match against KKR in the last 6 matches?
