Abhimanyu Selot @SelotAbhimanyu1 @Kritzika I beleive Russell couod have been promoted instead of tripathi or he should be in next to continue on tge big scoring 04:50 PM • Sep 09, 2021
50-run stand up for the second wicket between Iyer and Tripathi
KKR are comfortably placed at 63/1 after the powerplay.
OUT!! Bumrah knocks Gill over.The openers were on fire racing away to 40 in 3 overs, but that was all they could add before MI's frontline pacer gives his side the breakthrough.
Back for the chase
Full credit to KKR to pull things back brilliantly as MI finish with 155.At one stage when the openers were in the middle, It seemed like MI would get a score close to 180, but MI lost wickets in a clump after the first breakthrough. And despite Prasidh Krishna being a tad wayward, they've managed to keep things in control. It was Narine and Chakravrthy who started the squeeze and Ferguson who finished it with two wickets in the final over. In the last 10 overs, KKR only conceded 75 for 5 wickets. Can MI defend this? Join us for the chase in a bit.
Another wicket!Ishan Kishan gets a top-edge off a short ball to Russell off Ferguson. A miscue and MI lose their fourth. KKR have pulled things back brilliantly.
OUT! And it's the big wicket of Quinton de Kock.Change of pace and de Kock pulls straight to Sunil Narine at midwicket. He falls for 55 off 42. Prasidh picks up his second wicket.
SATHWIK RITHWIK @RithwikSathwik @Kritzika KKR should look to minimise the score to something around 160 so that there is a chance for them to win. #MIvKKR 03:22 PM • Sep 09, 2021
100 up for Mumbai Indians
FIFTY FOR DE KOCK!It's been a good innings from the MI keeper. He was the aggressor in the opening stand with Rohit, but since his wicket, he's been cautious. He's the glue that MI need to lead their innings through this quiet phase. His fifty comes off 37 balls.
OUT! Prasidh Krishna strikes right away in a new spell.Suryakumar Yadav edges to the ‘keeper. The two wickets have slowed down the flow of runs.
Ahmad Danish @TheAhmadDanish @Kritzika The way MI has started 200 will be on the card. #KKRvsMI @cricbuzz 02:39 PM • Sep 09, 2021
OUT!There's the breakthrough finally. Narine strikes and it's Rohit who has holed out in the deep, ending the 78-run stand. KKR really needed this wicket with the openers going strong. The delivery wasn't made for the slog sweep – didn't have much flight nor length and pays the price caught at long-on.Rohit departs for a 30-ball 33.
Rohit and de Kock have given MI a good start. De Kock, particularly in the last few overs, has been dealing in sixes. They are 56/0 after the powerplay.
Rohit Sharma becomes the first batsman in IPL to score 1000 runs vs a team in IPL.
Most runs vs a team in IPL:
1004* Rohit Sharma vs KKR
943 David Warner vs PBKS
915 David Warner vs KKR
909 Virat Kohli vs DC

KKR win toss and opt to bowl.KKR are unchanged. Anmpolpreet misses out for MI in the only change.
Good news for Mumbai is Rohit returns. He's at the toss
Pitch report:A new surface will be used for this clash. “This is an absolute fast bowlers paradise” reckon Danny Morrison and Matthew Hayden. “Generally spin is very hard to score at and they take 40 percent of the wickets.” Tough night for the batsmen ahead?
It was an inauspicious start to MI's return to the UAE with a loss to Chennai Super Kings in the opener of the second leg. There are questions over the fitness of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya that won't do them much good, but they are a side known to have quite a strong bounce-back ability. Hello and welcome to Game 34 of the Indian Premier League between MI and KKR.
While MI started off on the wrong foot, KKR did little wrong in their opening game against RCB that they won by nine wickets. They've shown glimpses of the side they're capable of being and why teams need to fear the power they have in their squad. They're currently sixth on the table as opposed to Mumbai's fourth. That said, a lot can change in an IPL points table in the second-half of the season. Especially, if there's a change in venue as there has been this year. KKR will move up to fourth should they beat MI tonight.
Toss, teams, pitch report, all coming up shortly. Stay tuned.
