South Africa all-rounder JP Duminy has lavished praise on India all-rounder Hardik Pandya for his stellar performances in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL). Krunal Pandya was the next man in.

Half of the Kolkata batsmen fail to reach double-figure as their batting collapsed like a stack of playing cards under pressure. With the partnership broken, Chawla got his second wicket in the very next over as Yadav (36 off 32) was caught by Rinku Singh at deep mid-wicket to slow down the Mumbai charge. Robin Uthappa replaced him and both were sent packing for 21 and 14 respectively.

In reply, KKR lost the edge after Chris Lynn got run out in the fourth over. His third over, which saw the back of Dinesh Karthik and Nitish Rana, denied the host any chance of comeback and worsened its poor track record against MI. Piyush was the most successful bowler for KKR with his match figures of 4-0-48-3. The only survivor of the onslaught was Prasidh Krishna who only had one run to his name. Uthappa and Rana were to follow with KKR bowled out for 108. The assault gave a much-needed fillip to the MI run rate. Mumbai Indians played with an unchanged team. But that didn't matter one bit as the KKR batting crumbled in a big way.
