KKR vs MI - M33 Report & Stats: IPL 2013

Match Report:

Mumbai Indians got back to their winning ways, albeit, in the last over, for a five-wicket verdict over defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Wednesday night. 

After KKR posted a competitive 159, MI batsmen, led by Dwayne Smith, chased it down with just a ball to spare.

Chasing a competitive 160, MI started quietly before Smith deposited Iqbal Abdulla for consecutive sixes in the fourth over. Sunil Narine drew first blood as he pegged back ‘birthday boy’ Sachin Tendulkar's (2) middle stump. MI made 42 runs from the power play. 

Smith continued to attack Abdulla blasting another six. Sachithra Senanayake was taken to the cleaners by Smith as he smashed a boundary and a six in the 8th over to bring up his fifty. Senanayake then trapped Dinesh Karthik (7) leg before.

Narine struck again getting rid of Smith (62) who was looking dangerous. Rohit Sharma effortlessly hit Senanayake for two sixes in the 13th over. Narine got the important wicket of Sharma (34) to break the 50-run partnership with Kieron Pollard. Pollard carried on with a massive six off Senanayake to reduce the equation to 18 off 12. With MI needing 10 runs to win off the last over, Rajat Bhatia dismissed Pollard (33) first ball before Harbhajan Singh hit a six and Ambati Rayudu hit a boundary to see MI home. 

Earlier the start of the match was delayed by thirty minutes due to a wet outfield. KKR elected to bat, winning the toss. Yusuf Pathan started in grand style with three boundaries and a six off Harbhajan in the first over as KKR scored 26 runs from it. Mitchell Johnson then had Pathan (19) caught at slip the next over. Jacques Kallis continued the assault with two boundaries off Lasith Malinga. KKR raced to 61 for 1 from their power-play overs. Pragyan Ojha then had Gambhir (26) miscue a shot to give MI their second wicket.

Kallis was given a life on 22 when Johnson dropped him off Ojha. But Ojha finally got his man as Kallis (37) was caught by Sharma. After being bogged down by the MI bowlers, Manoj Tiwary broke the shackles with a boundary off Yuzvendra Chahal, before launching him for a six. Eoin Morgan (31) swatted Johnson for a six, before perishing a couple deliveries later. Malinga castled (33) Tiwary and Debabrata Das (6) in the final over as KKR finished at 159 for 6 from 20 overs.

Stats Highlights:

2: Number of IPL matches Sachin Tendulkar has played on his birthday. The other was against Deccan Chargers at Hyderabad in 2011. Sachin could score only 28 and 2, but Mumbai Indians went on to win both the games.

3: Number of sides to employ more than one captain in IPL 2013 – Mumbai joined Pune Warriors India (3 captains) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (2 captains) by giving captaincy reins to Rohit Sharma.

7.83: Harbhajan’s economy in the tournament – worst for a spinner bowling five overs or more in the tournament.

26: Runs conceded by Harbhajan Singh in the first over of Kolkata Knight Riders’ innings – second most expensive opening over in IPL history. Incidentally the record is also held by a Mumbai Indians bowler. Abu Nechim who had conceded 27 runs in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2011.

42: Out of Lasith Malinga’s 88 wickets in IPL have been bowled!

50: Runs conceded by Sachithra Senanayake - the most he has conceded in a Twenty20 match.

Presentation

Gautam Gambhir: tough night, was a good wicket to bat on. They batted well, credit should go to them. I thought Dwayne batted well, the entire unit did well, they planned it well. Just not able to cross the line. I think Eden is always a good batting track.

Rohit Sharma: Good start to captaincy, happy with the way we fought. Didn't get a good start but the comeback was superb. We always knew that we have guys who could get us back into the game, didnt expect the start we got but pulled it back well. Smith's was a great innings, the wicket stays low and slow and he played well. It was my first game and there were a few nerves.

Dwayne Smith is the man of the match: Very happy with the striking, told myself to get in. Got out at the wrong time but thankfully we got through. Narine's their main bowler and needed to keep him out.
