It remains to be seen if defending champions will be able to turn their fortunes in the remaining league in the UAE.
Quinton de Kock looked brilliant from MI’s end whose fifty pushed MI to post modest 155 runs on the board but KKR bowlers returned in action and nothing really worked for them after the opening partnership. On the other hand, KKR’s top order fired and Rahul Tripathi’s stunning 74 and Venkatesh Iyer’s classy 53 led KKR to victory.
