Upbeat Mumbai Indians take on depleted Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens

Kolkata, on the other hand, folded up for just 108 runs. KKR's strategy of not opening with Narine nearly backfired when Gill got out cheaply but thanks to Uthappa's fifty and Nitish Rana's 31 (27), they got back into the game.

Narine bowled a very good economical spell of 4-0-27-1 in all that carnage from the Mumbai Indians batsmen. KKR has won five matches, which is a win more than Mumbai. The 19-year-old rising star signalled his intent with a six off his second ball, before proceeding to take apart the Kolkata attack as he brought up his fifty off just 17 deliveries.

In the next over, Kishan fell in the most Kishan-like manner. He's fallen to Bumrah three times in five games while Hardik has dismissed him twice in seven balls.

IPL 2018 Points Table It was Ishan Kishan (62, 21 balls, 5x4, 6x6) who took the match away from KKR on Wednesday after Dinesh Karthik won the toss and put MI in.

MI have backed Ishan despite three ducks - two of them being first ball ducks - in the tournament so far.

The 21-ball 56-run blitzkrieg between Krunal Pandya and Rohit Sharma in Indore is history and MI will next need to tame KKR, who have a reputation of being fierce opponents, at the Wankhade Stadium.

Kolkata was never in the chase, losing wickets at regular intervals. But McClenaghan got his revenge immediately, with a short and fast delivery that cramped Narine for room. Lynn and Narine have both just not looked in good touch this season, and it is hurting KKR against big oppositions. Uthappa had sliced the ball to cover point off the front foot, but Lynn thought he wanted the run.

KKR could not afford to slow down and that approach had Uthappa holing out to deep midwicket.

Mumbai's bowling has received a massive boost with Hardik Pandya's performances in recent games. Skipper Dinesh Karthik and Curran spoke to the umpire, only to hear that the decision couldn't be overturned. This time, they turned this problem around on its head and managed to win the game as well. So, why change a winning tactic? Under Pressure to get off to a flier, KKR did spark early on but soon after they went on to lose wickets in bunches, which derailed them totally and took them out of the game. Rinku Singh and Tom Curren in.

Picked up by MI for Rs 6.20 crore after an intense bidding with Royal Challengers Bangalore, the Jharkhand wicketkeeper batsman struggled initially with three ducks, forcing his team management to drop him down in the batting order from no. 3 to 4.
