After losing their first match, defending champions Mumbai Indians bounce back against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata to register first victory in the tournament..
Rohit Sharma remains unbeaten on 84 while Jos Buttler (41) and Mitch McClenaghan (20) also played crucial knocks to help Mumbai Indians get over the line with relative ease.
Rohit Sharma said It’s a high-scoring ground anyway. We have played enough cricket to know that. They got 10-15 runs extra but we held them up pretty tight in the end. They were up for that 200 mark, but our bowlers pulled it back well.
Kolkata Knight Riders (187/5)
Mumbai Indians (188/4)
Won by 6 wickets in 19.1overs.
