IPL 2018: Ishan Kishan credits Rohit Sharma after ballistic show against KKR

After that, it was as if he chose to play his natural game.

Uthappa was the third batsman to go as he hit straight to Suryakumar Yadav at deep midwicket off a Mayank Markande delivery in the seventh over and Andrew Russell followed suit the next over, after being deceived by a Hardik Pandya slow delivery. KKR, on the other hand, slid to fifth after spending considerable time in the top half of the league.

KKR though, can afford to have some breathing room, but they would not like to lose a game here and make life extremely hard for themselves for the rest of the tournament.

As far as the bowling is concerned, it could be a battle between the spin trio of KKR and the pace attack of MI. MI quickly got rid of Robin Uthappa and Nitish Rana and got the grip on the game after Dinesh Karthik got run out by JP Duminy.

Catches win matches: The batting was outstanding and the bowling was tight, but Mumbai once again proved cricket's favourite adage after seven of their ten dismissals came from catches in the field, and two more from run-outs. With Kishan racing to 21 off 9 balls, Mumbai were suddenly not dependent on Rohit Sharma for acceleration. Kuldeep went for four sixes in an over as Kishan gave Mumbai the momentum they desperately needed. Suryakumar Yadav has been in the form of his life, and is the fourth highest run-getter overall this year. Under the present circumstances, apart from Mumbai and Kolkata, Rajasthan Royals are still in contention for that one spot.

Bumrah- Whenever MI need a wicket or two, this champion T20 bowler often delivers.

Despite the batting-friendly conditions at the Eden Gardens, a chase of 211 is always a stiff task in the T20 format. Over 1000 runs from 52 games at a strike rate of over 130 reveal he's got the calibre to make it big.

When Knight Riders required 37 runs to overhaul Mumbai Indians' 181 for four, visiting captain Dinesh Karthik had to repeat his heroics in the Nidahas Trophy final in March.

The brothers Pandya are reliable middle-overs operators. From 72/2 after 10 overs, MI moved to 144 in the 15th over.

Shubman Gill opened the batting along with Chris Lynn last time around, and he just scored seven runs. At the Eden, he's made 264 against Sri Lanka in an ODI, 177 on Test debut, a Ranji Trophy double-hundred, 109* in the 2012 IPL, 98* in the 2015 IPL and 84* in the 2016 IPL.

If you're a KKR fan, stick with the spinners. No cohesion and frayed nerves worked against them as they lost wicket after wicket.
