IPL-2022, Match 14, MI vs KKR Highlights: Kolkata Knight Riders defeated Mumbai Indians by 5 wickets with 4 overs to spare in the 14th match of the TATA IPL 2022.
After deciding to bowl after winning the toss, the struggling MI batting innings recovered from 55/3 in the 11th over to 161/4 by the end of the 20th over, thanks to Kieron Pollard’s sixes in the last over, Suryakumar’s half-century, and Tilak Verma’s beautiful innings of 38 runs in 27 balls.
In response, KKR chased down the target of 162 easily with 24 balls to spare and the credit for the wonderful show from the KKR side goes to Pat Cummins who was playing his first match in the TATA IPL 2022 season and blasted 56 off just 15 balls, while Venkatesh Iyer remained at the crease on a score of 50* since the start of KKR’s batting innings.
Before the arrival of Pat Cummins, Mumbai had a real chance to seal the deal after getting the big man Andre Russell early on but the Australian all-rounder Pat Cummins came out of the syllabus for the Mumbai Indians and lost the first 3 consecutive matches of the TATA IPL 2022 season.
Brief Scores: Mumbai Indians: 161/4 (Suryakumar Yadav 52; Pat Cummins 2/49) lost to Kolkata Knight Riders: 162/5 (Pat Cummins 56*; Murugan Ashwin 2/25) by 5 wickets.
