IPL 2020: Quinton de Kock, Rahul Chahar Help Mumbai Indians Outclass Kolkata Knight Riders

Mumbai Indians Go To The Top Of The Points Table With 8 Wicket Victory Over KKR:

On Friday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, Mumbai Indians defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by eight wickets. The win brought the franchise based in Mumbai to the top of the table for points.

With an economic spell of two for 18 from his four overs, Rahul Chahar set up the win and then Quinton de Kock beat KKR out of the game with his half-century 13th Indian Premier League as he stayed unbeaten on 78. KKR, who took the field under their new captain Eoin Morgan, after winning the toss, never got away with the bat. KKR, who took the field under their new captain Eoin Morgan, after winning the toss, never got away with the bat.

Trent Boult, Jasprit Burmrah and Rahul Chahar ensured frequent intervals for Mumbai to get wickets. Boult, Bumrah, and Nathan Coulter-Nile took one wicket each. Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins took Coulter-Nile to the cleaners in the 20th over as he gave away 21 runs. Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock got Mumbai off to a flying start in response. In the powerplay, the openers scored 51 runs and managed to bring in 94 runs for the first wicket.

In an innings consisting of five boundaries and a six, Rohit Sharma scored 35 off 36 deliveries. As the MI skipper edged one straight to Dinesh Karthik behind the stumps, Shivam Mavi sent him back with an out-swinger. As he chopped a sweep shot on his stumps, Varun Chakravarthy had one past Suryakumar Yadav. As Mumbai registered a comfortable victory, Hardik Pandya then swung his bat around and remained unbeaten on 21 off just 11 balls.

Mumbai now has 12 points from eight games, the same as Delhi Capitals, but they remain at the top of the points table with a better net run rate. KKR remain in fourth position, but their net run-rate has had a toll on this heavy loss and they are now in danger of slipping down the points table.
