Bumrah’s 5-wkt haul fails to get victory for MI, lose to KKR by 52 runs

MI’s Jasprit Bumrah appeared to be under a magic spell. In one of the biggest wicket haul of 5 wickets, Jasprit Bumrah also gave just 10 runs away and almost bowled two back to back maidens in the later overs. KKR won the match by 52 runs.

Chasing a target of 166 runs, MI were bowled out for 113 in 17.3 overs with Pat Cummins taking three wickets for KKR. Earlier, KKR posted 165 for nine in 20 overs with Venkatesh Iyer top-scoring with a knock of 43 runs off 24 balls.

Bumrah bowled a triple wicket maiden to put the breaks on the KKR innings that looked destined to reach 200 before that, whereas KKR’s Cummins put the struggling MI innings in trouble.

While captain Rohit Sharma fell early, Ishan Kishan scored his first half century in eight innings.

Barring a 43-ball 51 from Ishan Kishan, Mumbai batters struggled to get going in the chase as their innings ended at 113 all out in 17.3 overs.

What worked for KKR was the return to form of Venkatesh Iyer, who had to be dropped earlier in the competition due to his lean run after a sensational debut season in 2021.

KKR finally played Tim Southee (1/10) and Pat Cummins (3/22) together and the move worked with the seasoned pacers sharing four wickets. Andre Russell too chipped in with couple of wickets.

Venkatesh smashed three boundaries and four sixes, but perished in the sixth over, giving a sitter to Daniel Sams at point, with spinner Kumar Kartikeya Singh (2/32) getting his first wicket.

While MI were already out of the play-off race, KKR, who have five wins from 12 games, can still sneak into the top four with two games remaining.

In the run chase, Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma (2) fell to a controversial DRS call in the first over after the on-field adjudged him not out for a caught behind appeal.

Going by TV replays, the UltraEdge spike came just before the ball went past the bat but the on field call was overturned, leaving Rohit shake his head in frustration.

Mumbai bowlers conceded only 23 runs from overs 7-10.
