Mumbai Indians came back from the jaws of defeat to register their first win of the tourament, beating Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs.

Trent Boult finished brilliantly at the end, defending 15 runs in the last over against the likes of Andre Russell and Dinesh Karthik. After a disappointing start, the Rohit Sharma-led side got on the points table with a win, while on the other hand, Eoin Morgan will look to consolidate on a mixed start to the tournament when they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on April 18. Earlier, Suryakumar Yadav made 56 and Rohit Sharma made 43 as Mumbai finished on 152 all out. Rana's 57 kept KKR in the hunt but his departure brought about a collapse that KKR failed to arrest.
