Earlier on in the innings, after being put to bat. Mumbai got off to a flying start thanks to their opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock. But once Rohit Sharma fell, the runs also dried up for them. Kolkata kept chipping wickets at regular intervals and made sure they restrict Mumbai to a score of 155 which Kolkata chased with almost 5 overs to spare courtesy to their attacking approach.
Not a good day with the ball for Mumbai! The bowlers could not trouble the batters in the early stage of the game. They were sent for a ride. Soon, Jasprit Bumrah got rid of Shubman Gill before the end of Powerplay. But then, the bowling pack found it difficult to stem up the run flow. No bowler except Bumrah got into the wickets column. Later, Bumrah took two more wickets in the end, but it was too little too late for Mumbai and they suffered another defeat after the resumption.
Kolkata got off to a fiery start! The opening pair of Shubman Gill and Venkatesh Iyer picked things from where they left off in the last game. They built a solid foundation for the chase. Gill was the first one to depart before the end of Powerplay. Later, Rahul Tripathi and Venkatesh Iyer kept smashing the ball all across the park. After 10 overs Kolkata were 111-1. Both the batters went on to make their half-centuries, but Iyer fell out soon after. Morgan came in but could not last for long as he contributed just 7 runs to the chase. In the end, it was Rahul Tripathi and Nitish Rana who took their side over the line.
What a run chase did we all just witness! The Kolkata batters made the chase look so easy. It was raining sixes in Abu Dhabi. Now, Kolkata have won two games in a row in the second leg and have snatched crucial two points here on their road to the playoffs. With this win, Kolkata have kicked Mumbai out of the fourth spot in the points table and have sent them two spots down.
