Mumbai Indians march into their fourth IPL final after a convincing six-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2017 Qualifier 2 in Bangalore on Friday. The two-time champions will now meet 2016 debutants Rising Pune Supergiant in Sunday’s final.

Mumbai rode on all-rounder Krunal Pandya’s unbeaten knock of 45 to register the six-wicket win in the second qualifier at M Chinnaswamy stadium. After opting to field first, Rohit Sharma-led unit was brilliant with the ball as they managed to bowl out the Knight Riders for mere 107 runs.

Jasprit Bumrah, who has been excellent in the death overs, was handed the new ball and the move worked as he got Chris Lynn cheaply. After six overs, Kolkata found themselves on backfoot as they had just 25 runs on the board. Karn Sharma, after Bumrah’s new-ball show, ran through KKR’s batting order.


Karn, who was picked over veteran Harbhajan Singh, has taken 13 wickets this season so far and had a perfect outing against a formidable KKR unit. He picked the wickets of Gambhir, Jaggi, Narine and Grandhomme and gave little away during his spell of 4/16.
