Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) captain Dinesh Karthik addresses a press conference at Eden Gardens.

"It was like just watching the ball and if you get them in your arc hit them or just take a single with Rohit bhaiya batting at the other end". He even bagged the man of the match title for his brilliant innings.

KKR were hammered by Mumbai, who scored 210 in their 20 overs, then bowled out Kolkata for just 108 with 11 balls to spare.

Once opener Chris Lynn (21) and Sunil Narine (4) got out early, it was always going to be tough for KKR.

The hefty defeat also meant that the net-run rate of the team has been severely jolted, which won't work in their favour if the teams are locked on equal points.

Asked to chase a challenging an imposing 211 for victory at Eden Gardens, KKR never recovered from a poor start and slumped to 111 all out in the penultimate over.

Kishan his five fours and six sixes during his blistering stay, moving Mumbai's run rate from less than seven an over near the midway stage, up to nearly 10. The team skipper Sharma scored 36 runs. Kuldeep, a regular for India across formats, went for 43 runs in three overs.

He walked in during the first time-out, with Mumbai 62 for 2 in nine overs, and soon hit a six and three fours off wristspinners Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla.

Six bowlers bowled for MI and everyone took at least one wicket where the Pandya brothers were leading wicket takers where they took two wickets each. Andre Russell slapped Hardik Pandya straight to cover in the eighth over, but it was the two wickets in the tenth over, also from Hardik, that all but ended KKR's challenge.

This brought wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan and from here, the match took a completely different turn.

Suryakumar Yadav (36) had provided a steady if unspectacular start alongside Evin Lewis (18) but Piyush Chawla (3/48) sent both packing and he troubled the Mumbai Indians until a Kishan spanking tarnished his figures. He hit the third ball of the over the square leg fence, the fourth over mid wicket, the fifth over long on and the final beyond mid wicket to race past fifty. Huge runs, huge wickets and huge difference.

A surprise choice as KKR captain, Karthik was visibly under tremendous pressure and said their play-off chances are still alive with three matches left.
