In his 20-match IPL career, Kishan has scored 412 runs at an average of 21.68.
Captain Rohit Sharma struck a brilliant 94 before his bowlers produced a clinical performance as Mumbai Indians beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 46 runs.
Put into bat, Mumbai recovered from a shock start of 0 for 2 to post 213 for 6, their highest score of the season, mainly through the splendid batting of Rohit (94 in 52 balls) and opener Evin Lewis (65 in 42 balls).
Then, the Mumbai bowlers led by left-arm spinner Krunal Pandya (3 for 28) stopped RCB at 167 for 8 in 20 overs to notch up their first win in their fourth match of the season.
