Shares that he and Sunil Narine are tactically similar but technically different. Feels that the wickets were too flat initially but he has not changed his bowling much from the first game and he is now reaping the rewards.
7:25 PM IST Shreyas Iyer, the skipper of Kolkata says that there were nerves and they have been playing well and the boys have put up their hands and this game is a testament to the character of this side. Adds that after losing the toss they had the mindset of winning the game from anywhere and after the strong Powerplay it was great to pull things back in this fashion. Talks about giving the extra over to Varun Chakaravarthy and backing Harshit Rana for the final over and says that he sticks to his instincts and both were tremendous which is why he backed them to get the job done for the side.
7:20 PM IST It's time for the Presentation Ceremony...
7:18 PM IST Andre Russell is in for a chat. He says that they batted first and therefore they knew that the ball was sticking in the surface. Mentions that it was a good enough total and it was about utilising the boundary dimensions. Feels that the bowlers won them the game. Shares that he enjoyed the challenge of bowling to Suryakumar Yadav. Adds that it was about keeping things as simple as he could against Suryakumar. States that the more cricket you play, it becomes easier. Further says that he has been working extremely hard on his fitness and he is happy to perform the role given by the team management. Tells that he likes doing as much talking as he can and the youngsters have been eager to learn.
7:17 PM IST Mumbai's skipper, Hardik Pandya says that it is a tough defeat. Says that the foundation was there but not capitalising on it cost them the game. Shares that the wicket was up and down and it was important to keep the momentum up. Feels that the score was par and the bowlers did a pretty good job. When asked about the approach to the remaining games, he replies that they need to go and enjoy themselves and play good cricket, which they have not done enough this season.
7:17 PM IST Earlier in the innings, the Mumbai pacers utilized every bit of assistance from the moist deck, dismissing the destructive openers upfront and putting Kolkata on the back foot. Despite the early setbacks, Venkatesh Iyer stood firm against the pace assault and forged a solid partnership with Nitish Rana, who couldn't quite shift into top gear before both were eventually dismissed. Andre Russell provided some respite with a flurry of aggressive strokes, but Kolkata struggled to maintain momentum, losing wickets at regular intervals. Jasprit Bumrah and Piyush Chawla emerged as the standout bowlers for Mumbai, claiming two scalps each, while Anshul Kamboj also made valuable contributions with the ball to restrict Kolkata to 157 runs at the end of 16 overs which turned out to be too much for Mumbai.
7:14 PM IST With their backs against the wall, Kolkata didn't start the way they intended to with the ball in hand. The pacers leaked runs in the Powerplay, and options for taking wickets seemed out of reach. It was Sunil Narine and Varun Chakaravarthy who stemmed the flow of runs and provided the much-needed breakthrough. Subsequently, the pacers tightened their lines and secured a couple more crucial wickets, opening the door for Kolkata to make a comeback. The extended spell of Varun Chakaravarthy proved to be a masterstroke for skipper Shreyas Iyer, as he dismissed the Mumbai skipper, after which it was all about maintaining the momentum, a task the pacers executed exceptionally well. Harshit Rana held his nerve well in the last over and claimed two wickets. Although, it was Varun Chakaravarthy's spell of 2 for 17 off 4 overs which stood out for Kolkata.
7:03 PM IST It's been a remarkable turnaround for Kolkata as they claw their way back into this nail-biter of a game, securing two vital points and becoming the first team to qualify for the playoffs. This match epitomizes Mumbai's season as they suffer their 9th loss. After a promising end with the ball, Mumbai's openers immediately seized control, effortlessly finding boundaries at will. The chase seemed well within reach, highlighted by a formidable 65-run partnership between Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan. However, their momentum faltered when spin entered the fray, leading to the quick dismissals of both openers and momentarily stalling the chase. Despite efforts from Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma to stabilize, Mumbai's fortunes plummeted with Suryakumar's departure, followed swiftly by skipper Hardik Pandya's dismissal, leaving their hopes shattered as wickets continued to fall. Although Tilak Varma and Naman Dhir made valiant attempts to revive the innings, the target proved insurmountable following the loss of crucial wickets in the middle overs.
