Lasith Malinga and Rohit Sharma starred for Mumbai Indians as they registered a dominating nine-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders. With this win, MI top the table and will face Chennai Super Kings

Batting first, Kolkata Knight Riders never got going in their innings. Shubman Gill & Chris Lynn were removed early by Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik was dismissed by Lasith Malinga.

Malinga stunned plenty by removing Andre Russell for a golden duck. Robin Uthappa had a torrid outing with the bat, and KKR eventually managed to post a score of just 133.

Quinton de Kock got Mumbai off to a flier. Post his dismissal, Rohit Sharma took charge of the run-chase and along with Surya Kumar Yadav, eased MI to victory and to the top of the table.
