The openers, Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis played responsible knocks for the team as Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai set a 182-run target against Kolkata at Wankhede Stadium.

Though skipper Rohit Sharma again misfired and scored just 11 runs off 11 balls.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya, whose performance has been a bit on and off throughout the tournament scored unbeaten 35 runs off 20 balls. He played at a strike rate of 175.00 and his inning included four 4s and one 6.

Krunal Pandya lost his wicket to Sunil Narine after scoring 14 runs and JP Duminy scored 13 runs for the team.

Surprisingly, Dinesh Karthik used seven players to bowl in the match but only Sunil Narine and Andre Russell were able to take wickets.

Sunil Narine dismissed Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya and on the hand, Andre Russell out bowled the openers Surya Kumar Yadav and Evin Lewis.

Considering the high-scoring Wankhede pitch, the total is 20 runs short of the expected score.

Now, the responsibility falls on the bowling department of Mumbai to defend the total as the batting strength of Kolkata is good.
