Earlier, Kolkata won the toss and invited Mumbai Indians to bat first. Quinton De Kock returned to the squad after finishing his quarantine. Quinton Kock lofted a tossed-up delivery off Varun Chakravarthy to mid-on and Rahul Tripathi takes a clean catch. Surya played three boundaries in the very next over displaying top-tier rhythm.
Rohit Sharma and Surya Kumar Yadav added 76 to the total. SKY meanwhile completes his brilliant half century but mistimes a lofted shot as he charges down the ground and Gill takes a great catch running from Long on. Rohit Sharma however continues to play at one end but got removed by Pat Cummins who bowled an off-cutter as Rohit Sharma finds an inside edge. He made 43 off 32 including 3 fours and a six.
Hardik Pandya could not make the most of it as he played a sluggish knock of 15 runs off 17 deliveries including 2 fours and got dismissed by Prasidh Krishna. MI managed to put 152 on the board as they lost wicket in quick successions.
Rana and Gill chasing 153 forged a stunning 72 run partnership. In the 10th over, Rahul came and tricked Gill with a tossed up delivery as Gill lofted to Long off and Pollard takes a sitter.
