IPL 2021, KKR vs MI Highlights: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) suffered a batting collapse in the run chase as they lost to Mumbai Indians (MI) by 10 runs. KKR’s middle order collapse undone the hard work of Nitish Rana up the order. Rana hit his second fifty of the season scoring 57 runs from 47 deliveries. He shared a 72 run opening partnership with Shubman Gill who scored 33 runs from 24 deliveries. Apart from the openers, none of the KKR batsmen registered a double-digit score. Rahul Chahar was the top wicket-taker with four wickets from his four overs for 27 runs. In the final over, Trent Boult took two wickets defending 15 runs.

MI suffer a batting collapse in death overs as they were bundled out for 152. Andre Russell got a five-wicket haul after bowling just two overs in the back end of the innings. Suryakumar Yadav scored a half-century and shared a 76-run partnership with Rohit Sharma for the second wicket. Skipper Rohit scored 43 but lost his wicket just when he was accelerating. Krunal Pandya’s cameo towards the end helped MI get past the 150-run mark and post a respectable total. Hardik Pandya played a slow 15-run knock as well. The other seven batsmen failed to register a double-digit score. Eoin Morgan was spot on with his bowling changes and field placements. Apart from Russell, Pat Cummins got a couple of wickets whereas Varun Chakravarthy, Shakib Al Hasan and Prasidh Krishna got one wicket each.

Worrying batting collapse for KKR

What a turnaround this has been for Mumbai Indians. KKR went from 122/3 in 15th over to 140/7 as they lost the game by 10 runs. Once again, MI show why they have won five IPL titles.

23:16 (IST)13 Apr 2021
Boult does the job

BOWLED! Trent Boult gets Pat Cummins' wicket with a perfect yorker. The Kiwi bowler is on a hat-trick now. Harbhajan Singh is the new man in, he hits the ball over mid-off but does not get the distance. A couple of runs. Boult ends with a dot ball. KKR 142/7 after 20 overs

23:13 (IST)13 Apr 2021
Russell gone!

Trent Boult bowls the final over of the innings. Andre Russell goes for the big shot but gets an inside edge, just a single. Dinesh Karthik for some kind of reverse shot but could not hit the slower short ball past the short third man, just a single again. WICKET! Caught and bowled. Russell gone! Brilliant stuff from Boult. KKR need 13 runs from 3 balls now. KKR 140/6 after 19.3 overs

23:10 (IST)13 Apr 2021
Bumrah outsmarts Karthik

Jasprit Bumrah bowls the penultimate over. Just four singles from the over. Dinesh Karthik fails to get bat on the final two deliveries trying to slog. That's what Rohit expected from Bumrah in the penultimate over. KKR need 15 runs from the final over. They have two big-hitters in the middle. Will they get it? KKR 138/5 after 19 overs

23:04 (IST)13 Apr 2021
Bumrah drops Russell's catch

Krunal Pandya continues. Dinesh Karthik gets a single. A dot ball to follow. DROPPED! Jasprit Bumrah puts down Andre Russell's catch. That is a big drop in death overs. This just may be the match.

22:59 (IST)13 Apr 2021
Free Hit release pressure

Jasprit Bumrah back in the attack. His overs are going to be crucial now. Dinesh Karthik defends the first delivery and then takes a single. Andre Russell on strike, he faces his fourth dot delivery. But he can make up for it with a few big hits. Bumrah beats the bat this time, another dot ball. Wait, it's a no ball. Free hit for Russell. This is the right time for Russell to get off the mark. FOUR! He hits his first boundary. Freebie from Bumrah. A single to follow. Karthik takes a single off the last ball as well. KKR 131/5 after 17 overs

22:45 (IST)13 Apr 2021
Chahar gets Rana

Shakib survives

Rohit starts his over. He cramps Shakib Al Hasan for room and he almost chops it on to his wickets. The underedge off Shakib's bat runs to the boundary.

Rohit twists his ankle

Skipper departs

Rana punishes Pollard

Kieron Pollard introduced into the attack. Nitish Rana goes for a reverse sweep but misses the ball. Pollard comes round the wicket, another dot ball. SIX! Rana picks the short ball and hits it for a maximum. That will release some pressure. FOUR! Rana makes room for himself and beats the fielder in the deep. This is turning out to be an expensive over.
