MI vs KKR Stat Highlights, IPL 2022: Clinical Knights Keep Slender Playoff Hopes Alive With Thumping Win Over Mumbai Indians

Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers came good and the team too played as a unit to Mumbai Indians by 52 runs in IPL 2022 on Monday, May 9. The Knight Riders, batted first and after a fiery start, they collapsed largely due to Jasprit Bumrah’s sensational fifer to settle for a below-par total. With the ball in hand, they capitalised on Mumbai’s batting woes to throttle their run chase, eventually carving out a memorable victory. It was also their first league double over the five-time champs since 2014. This result also enables KKR stay alive in the IPL 2022 playoff race. Rohit Sharma Dismissal: Ultra-Edge Shows Spike Even Before Ball Touches Bat, Netizens React

KKR made five changes tonight, bringing in some faces who were responsible for their good start to the season. Venkatesh Iyer, who came in to the team, returned to form with a form that fans saw him have in the second half of last season. He smashed 43 runs off 24 deliveries, helping KKR achieve their highest opening stand and best powerplay score this season. Rahane played second fiddle but looked good for his 25 as well. Nitish Rana’s 43 and Rinku Singh’s 23* were Kolkata’s only saving grace in the middle-order as the rest were blown apart by Bumrah, who scalped five wickets for just 10 runs in his four overs. After 100 runs of the first 10 overs, KKR managed just 65 of the next 10 to end up with 165/9.

KKR bowlers surprised Mumbai’s batting in the latter’s run chase. The Knight Riders had their bit of luck up front when Rohit Sharma was given out under controversial circumstances, with the ball not even the bat and the Ultra-Edge showing a spike. Barring that, it was KKR all the way. Pat Cummins made a strong statement on his return to the playing XI with figures of 3/22 an so did Varun Chakaravarthy, who snared the big wicket of Tim David and gave 22 runs in four overs. Andre Russell also took two wickets and Sunil Narine and Tim Southee had one apiece. Suryakumar Yadav, Mumbai Indians Star, Ruled Out of Remainder of IPL 2022 With Muscle Injury
