Suryakumar Yadav, the opening batsman, is the highest run scorer for Mumbai. He targeted Piyush Chawla and scored two sixes and a four in the last over before getting out to him as well.

Rather that's what the Knight's camp thought. He was dealing in boundaries and over-boundaries at Eden Gardens on Wednesday and it was the second-fastest 50 of IPL 2018.

Kishan hit Piyush Chawla for three fours in the next over before getting stuck into Kuldeep, nearly as if punishing him for having beaten him first ball. Kuldeep Yadav beared the brunt of Kishan's blitz as the youngster smashed four back-to-back sixes. With five 4s and six 6s, the youngster raced to a half century. After sending Sunil Narine into the stands at midwicket, he swept once again - looking for his seventh six - but found Robin Uthappa at deep backward square-leg. Skipper Rohit Sharma chipped in with a crucial 36 to his name as well. He had done the job for the visitors on the evening. He finished with 36 off 31 balls.

Andre Russell (2) was the next to depart as he was caught by Markande at extra cover off Hardik. While Kolkata have an odds of 4:5, Mumbai Indians travel to Eden Gardens with the odds of exactly one, according to popular betting website,

Krunal Pandya cleared the ropes off the last ball and Mumbai Indians ended the innings with 210 runs from 20 overs. Kishan's innings changed the momentum of the match completely and put Mumbai into the driver's seat. I was going on the back foot and wanted to pull.

"I think today was my day and I was happy about that".

Toss Report: Tails is the call from visiting captain Rohit Sharma and heads it is. When the Kolkata batting innings began, they were literally demolished. After that, it was as if he made a decision to play his natural game. Mumbai Indians got off to a flying start thanks to the in-form Suryakumar Yadav who was also the pick of the batsmen scoring 59 runs off 39 deliveries. Narine, Russell, Rana and Rinku Singh were all troubled and dismissed either fending or slogging at such deliveries.
