Kolkata skipper, Gautam Gambhir says that they discussed after the last game that this wicket was not a 170-180 wicket and they should have targeted around 140. Credits Ishank Jaggi and Suryakumar Yadav for a good batting performance. Reckons that they hardly put pressure on any of the Mumbai bowlers as they kept losing wickets constantly.

Kolkata were never in this game. Earlier in their innings, barring Ishank Jaggi and Suryakumar Yadav, nobody really did anything at all and that ultimately proved to be their undoing. One of the easiest matches Mumbai could have played, that too in a virtual semi-final.

!

Mumbai have booked the tickets for their fourth final in the Indian T20 League history with a dominating performance. First they bowled Kolkata out for a paltry total of 107 with Karn Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah leading the charge. It was then just a matter of time before their batsmen chased it down. Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya more or less got the job done with a 54-run stand with the latter adding the finishing touches.

Umesh Yadav to Krunal Pandya

FOUR! Krunal finishes things off in style! MUMBAI ARE IN THE FINAL! A comfortable win for Rohit Sharma's men here. It's short on middle and off, Krunal makes room and looks to cut and it flies towards third man. The fielder there runs to his right and puts in a dive, gets his hand to it but can't exactly keep a hold of it. It goes through him and touches the rope. With this, MUMBAI WIN BY 6 WICKETS AND WITH 33 BALLS TO SPARE!
