In the 40th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, the Kolkata Knight Riders were in total control thanks to Robin Uthappa’s superb knock of 80, putting the Mumbai Indians bowling to the sword and the home team are now in sight of victory. The 16th over of the match saw Lendl Simmons’s medium pacers being easily negotiated by Uthappa and also hammer the bowler for a couple of sixes. Simmons, though had the last laugh when the ball breached Uthappa’s defence and gave Mumbai a ray of hope.

 

Lasith Malinga was brought in a desperate attempt to produce something out of the ordinary but things went horribly wrong for the Sri Lankas with two bad deliveries that were dispatched easily for runs.Harbhajan Singh gave a glimmer of hope with a wicket — that of Manish Pandey butKolkata Knight Riders were blunting the Mumbai Indians bowling attack and were looking well poised through Robin Uthappa to chase down the defending champions’ modest score. The sixteenth over by Lendl Simmons saw Uthappa go berserk on the off-side with two towering sixes, well over the long-on boundaery.

 

Earlier, Mumbai Indians scored 141 for five against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 game at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. Rohit Sharma was the top scorer for Mumbai as they were up against an inspired Kolkata bowling attack that did not give much away.
