Mumbai Indians applied great pressure in the powerplay following Suryakumar Yadav’s half century led them to 161/4.
They lost Ajinkya Rahane and captain Shreyas Iyer in this period. Sam Billings and Venkatesh Iyer were looking to revive the innings and carry with the trail.
Before, Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma changed gears in the last 5 overs following which Kieron Pollard bashed 22 runs off the last five balls to augment Mumbai Indians to 161/4.
KKR were on top for much of the innings, fetching wickets as soon as it seemed like MI were getting a partnership going.
Nevertheless, they could not do the same with Suryakumar and Tilak Varma, who put up 83 runs for the fourth wicket off 49 balls. MI scored as many as 75 runs in the last five overs.
However, the loss for Mumbai is their third in a row this edition.
