Rahul Chahar bowls out the final over, giving away four off it as Mumbai Indians record a sizeable 49-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders to bring their losing run in the UAE to an end as well as collect their first points of IPL 2020.
A good day all-round for the title holders with the captain bouncing back to form and their champion bowler getting his rhythm back, virtually bringing the contest to an end by getting rid of Russell and Morgan in one over.
KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik says, “It was a pretty rusty day to be honest. Don’t want to get too analytical about it. Boys could’ve done better. Couple of the guys just finished their quarantine today, so it’s hard. (On tweaking the KKR top order) Haven’t had the conversation with Baz yet, so will let you know before the next game.”
Earlier, Mumbai Indians made 195 in 20 overs. Skipper Rohit Sharma hit six sixes to make 80 of 54 balls while chasing and Surya Kumar Yadav made 29 of 13 balls.
