Mumbai Indians lost to Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 wickets with 4.5 over remaining. However, MI captain Rohit Sharma scored 33 off 30 balls and became the fastest player to score 1000 runs against a single opposition in IPL. After the defeat, he said, "It is always there at the back of the mind on where you stand, we are still in the middle of the table, so we have to get back and fight and hopefully get some wins on the trot."
"We started well but didn't get enough towards the back end. I thought it was a good pitch, we failed to capitalize on the start we got and we didn't bowl well at the start. I don't want to look into it too much, things can happen and you have to move on. After a good start, we had to get small partnerships but we kept losing wickets at regular intervals, it is not easy for new batters to go in and start hitting the ball. It is something that happened in the last game as well and we will address it."
Mumbai Indians – 156/6 in 20 overs. (Quinton de Kock - 55 (42), Ferguson - 2/27, Krishna - 2/43)
Kolkata Knight Riders - 159/3 in 15.1 overs. (Rahul trpathi - 74*(42), V Iyer - 53(30), Bumrah - 3/43)
