Match 5: KKR VS MI

Mumbai Indians (MI) received a big victory of the season after beating the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 5 of the VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Tuesday. 

Chasing a target of 153, the KKR openers namely Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill took calculated risks to start off their innings, with Rana doing the majority of the hitting. The duo batted with all optimism and vigour, targeting the pace of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, and hitting some awesome strokes, including a drive from Gill off Bumrah, and successfully completed a 50-run stand.

Well, the pair continued to bat on before Chahar provided a breakthrough for MI after Gill lofted one into the hands of the outfielder in the 9th over. KKR were placed at 81/1 at the halfway stage and it was Chahar who struck for the MI, dismissing Rahul Tripathi in the 11th over.

KKR wanted to break the partnership and they struck twice in quick succession, courtesy Shakib Al Hasan and Cummins. Shakib, who was playing his 50th IPL game for KKR, dismissed Surya for 56.

Further, the duo of Rohit and Hardik Pandya then added 27 runs in the next four overs. Prasidh Krishna got Hardik out for 15 in the 17th over before Russell ran through the MI batting line-up by taking five wickets in his two overs.

Finally, in the 18th over, Russell picked up two wickets, dismissing Kieron Pollard and Marco Jansen and then bowled a three-wicket final over bowling out KKR thus enabling MI to make a win.
