Kolkata Knight Riders kept their slim hopes of reaching the IPL 2022 playoffs alive with a 52-run win over Mumbai Indians at the DY Patil Stadium on Monday.
After Jasprit Bumrah’s sensational 5/10, including 18 dot balls, was instrumental in restricting KKR to 165/9 in 20 overs, Mumbai were never in the reckoning to chase the total, crashing to 113 all out in 17.3 overs.
This is Rohit Sharma-led MI’s ninth defeat in the ongoing IPL 2022. While for Kolkata, their 5th win in 12 matches has kept their campaign alive as they are now placed at seventh position in the points table.
