Mumbai Indians in final of IPL-X, beat KKR by six wickets

Mumbai Indians in final of IPL-X, beat KKR by six wickets

Six overs game become niggly and the total can be low.

"We discussed after the last game as well this is not a 160-170 wicket", the left-hander, who got out for just 12 tonight, said. Gambhir's men will now face the "real test" as they take on Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier on Friday. They did so well in the league stage but were completely out of form in the semi-final match.

Lynn and Narine, who had enjoyed batting in the Powerplay previously, failed to get going as Kolkata were restricted to 25-3 at the end of six overs. Mumbai may only win if they improve with bat. "I woke up this morning feeling pretty good so I put my hand up for selection", he said.

Another major boost that we keep talking about is the way KKR speedsters have flourished this season. Fit-again Nathan Coulter-Nile has come back into the side strongly and Umesh Yadav has continued to hit the right areas and bowl well.

Knight Riders could consider opening the bowling with Sunil Narine. "Hope dis one lasts till May 21st", Gambhir tweeted.

That one was critical to clinching Cleveland's first championship since the Browns won the National Football League title in 1964. Love's fourth triple of the first half gave the Cavaliers a 40-point lead, 66-26, with 2:59 to play in the second quarter.

"The way we batted wasn't good enough and six over games can be niggly".

Skipper Gautam Gambhir will obviously feel uncomfortable with the overall statistics since his team has lost 13 of the 18 encounters so far against the Mumbai side in the IPL.

However, what should be of concern to KKR is that with predictions of possible showers today, in case the match is called off due to rain, Mumbai will proceed to the final as they are ahead in the points table.

The only time Hyderabad looked to up the ante was during Warner and Kane Williamson's (24, 26b, 2x4, 1x6) second-wicket partnership of 50 in 45 balls.

Hyderabad would also like Yuvraj Singh, who started the season with a bang hammering 70 not out in the tournament opener against Bangalore, to get runs. SRH fans rue that since it was just a 6-over game, KKR won it easily.

Hopefully, after Wednesday night's example, better sense will prevail when it comes to laying down the rules for future IPL including a reserve day for the Play-offs and not just the final.

"We kept losing wickets and could never target any particular bowler". Both batsmen were understandably cautious early on and sailed through a hard period of play; runs were at a premium - coming primarily in ones and twos. Hyderabad ended up scoring a modest 128 for seven.

Ishank Jaggi, playing his first match, was not out on five. "That's been the hallmark of this team, we're not dependent on one individual", Rohit said at the post-match press conference.
