Qualifier 2, M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru 19 May, 2019

Toss won by Mumbai Indians (decided to bowl)

Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 6 wickets

Man of the Match: Karn Sharma



Rohit Sharma says Karn Sharma set the match up for Mumbai Indians.

"We have been thinking about bowling Bumrah with the new ball for a while and against KKR, who have a top heavy batting line-up we wanted to take a chance"


BOUNDARY: That's it, Pandya gets that away to the boundary, remains unbeaten on 45. Mumbai Indians win by 6 wickets and are through to their fourth IPL final


BOUNDARY: Krunal Pandya drills that past the bowler to the boundary and Mumbai now need just three runs to win


BOUNDARY: Rajpoot bowls that short and Pollard pulls it, Colin de Grandhomme misses an easy stop and that sums up KKR's day in the field. They have been terrible in every field


WICKET: Rohit Sharma departs for 26, holes out in the deep to Rajpoot off the bowling of Coulter-Nile. Mumbai Indians 88/4


BOUNDARY: And now he hits another one, with the spin this time and over the extra cover fielder. Pandya has looked really classy with the bat this season. Definitely a candidate for the Indian team like his brother


BOUNDARY: Krunal Pandya opens the face of the bat to guide that to the third man fence, the fifty partnership is also up and Mumbai inching closer to the final now


SIX: Rohit Sharma hits a huge six to send Piyush Chawla packing. 16 from the over and Mumbai Indians now need less than 30 runs to win the match


Krunal Pandya has really applied himself tonight on a difficult track, taken calculated risks to ensure no more wickets were lost


BOUNDARY:  Krunal Pandya hits back to back boundaries off Piyush Chawla and Mumbai Indians are cruising towards the target now


Narine into the attack again and Krunal Pandya and Rohit Sharma doing it calmly here. Perhaps something that was needed from Gambhir and Uthappa when KKR were batting


BOUNDARY:  Chawla errs in line slightly and Krunal sweeps that, only to get an under edge, which takes it past the fine leg fielder, who is inside the circle. Mumbai Indians now need 50 runs more to go through to the final


BOUNDARY: Chawla into his third over and Rohit Sharma welcomes himby hitting a stylish cover drive to the boundary, Mumbai Indians up to 54/3 now


BOUNDARY: Krunal Pandya gets that away to punish Sunil Narine, Mumbai Indians move up to 44/3 after 7 overs. Mumbai Indians ,maintaining a good run rate despite the fall of wickets


WICKET: Piyush Chawla bowls a peach of a delivery, to castle Ambati Rayudu for 6, Mumbai Indians 34/3 now. The ball pitches and holds its line, Rayudu misses it completely and loses his off stump


Sunil Narine into the attack now and he is keeping it tight. Important for Narine to do it with the ball tonight


Rohit Sharma is the new man and he will have to shepherd the Mumbai innings tonight. Easy target can sometime turn out to be tricky. Can't lose too many wickets


WICKET: Umesh Yadav gets his man, Parthiv looking to drive that on the up and gets a faint edge to the keeper, Mumbai Indians 24/2


BOUNDARY: Terrible blowling by Umesh, five fielders on the off and he bowls at the body, Parthiv gets that away fine on the leg side for cnsecutive boundaries


BOUNDARY:  Parthiv Patel hits another great shot through extra cover for his second boundary of the innings


WICKET: Piyush Chawla traps Lendl Simmons in front for 3, Mumbai Indians 11/1 in the second over


BOUNDARY: Parthi Patel crashes that through the covers. That came at a quick pace from Umesh and Parthic was on to it in a flash. Mumbai Indians 11 for no loss after the first over.


BOUNDARY: Leg-byes, unlucky for KKR again. Mumbai Indians won't mind that


Second ball of the over and Ishank Jaggi mis-fields to allow two easy runs for Mumbai Indians


Mumbai Indians openers are out in the middle and KKR bowlers will have to try and get out early to have any chance of defending this total


Mumbai Indians need 108 runs to make it through to the finals


WICKET: Malinga signals the end for KKR, clean bowls Ankit Rajpoot. KKR all out for 107 in 18.5 overs


BOUNDARY: That's a lucky boundary, Bumrah bowls it full on the off stump and it goes to the fence after getting an inside edge, KKR 106/9 after 18 overs


WICKET: It is one wicket KKR didn't want to lose, Bumrah bowls it short and Suryakumar Yadav gets a top edge which is caught brilliantly by Malinga in the deep, he goes for 31, KKR 101/9
