KKR VS MI: KKR won by 5 wickets against Mumbai Indian in IPL2022

Date:

In KKR’s victory, Pat Cummins’ 56 not out off 15 balls and Venkatesh Iyer’s brave half-century were important. With work remaining to be done, KKR were in trouble after losing Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Sam Billings, and Andre Russell.

Cummins, who was playing in his first IPL 2022 match, teamed up with Venkatesh to defeat Mumbai Indians for the third time in as many games this season. Cummins hit the half-century mark in the Indian Premier League in 14 balls, equaling the record for the fastest half-century. With KL Rahul, he currently holds the record.

Meanwhile, Pat Cummings was named player of the match, according to him. He, too, admits he was taken aback by his knock. He notes that he wasn’t attempting to overthink things, but rather just tossing it around.

It’s especially satisfying for him to get such a big hit in his first game here, he says. They are fortunate to have kept their core squad from last season, but there are some interesting young players as well, according to the coach. He concludes by stating that he is pleased with his knock.

The toss was won by KKR captain Shreyas Iyer, who asked MI to bat first on a fresh surface with plenty of bounce at the MCA Stadium. Umesh Yadav, the Purple Cap holder, removed Rohit Sharma in his second over, while Varun Chakravarthy sent back Dewald Brevis, who excelled on his IPL debut with a 19-ball 29.

Suryakumar Yadav (52) and his 83-run partnership with Tikal Varma laid the groundwork for Kieron Pollard, who smashed three sixes off Pat Cummins’ penultimate over to give MI a difficult 161 for 5 in 20 overs. KKR’s batting strategy has been to attack at all costs, but Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer were wary of Basil Thampi and Daniel Sams in a 162-run chase on Wednesday. While Thampi only gave up 8 runs in his first two overs, Sams gave up six in one.

KKR’s openers were also cautious in their approach to Jasprit Bumrah, scoring only two runs in his opening over. In the meantime, Kolkata captain Shreyas Iyer praised Cummins’ performance, calling it “fantastic.” He claims he can’t believe it because the other day he was getting knocked out in the nets but couldn’t believe the way he was hitting.

He was watching the ball sail around the field from the dugout. Venkatesh Iyer was told to perform the anchor role, and he was only advising Iyer on how to time the ball properly. He believes the top four players haven’t yet played their best cricket and that they must accept responsibility.

On the powerplay and even when KKR’s batting strategy has been to attack at all costs, but Ajinkya Rahane and Venkatesh Iyer were wary of Basil Thampi and Daniel Sams in a 162-run chase on Wednesday. While Thampi only gave up 8 runs in his first two overs, Sams gave up six in one. KKR’s openers were also cautious in their approach to Jasprit Bumrah, scoring only two runs in his opening over.

The strain of the asking rate was rising for KKR by the time Tymal Mills came on for his first over. Rahane, who had just scored seven runs, snatched a short ball from Mills and sent it straight to Sams at deep midwicket. Shreyas Iyer, the KKR captain, was thrown into the middle with Venkatesh Iyer as a result of the dismissal.

Rohit Fails once again

Rohit made 41 out of 32 in the opening game, indicating that he could have a fantastic season. However, things have only gotten worse for him since then. He scored 10 off 5 balls in the second match against Rajasthan Royals (RR).

Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma says he never anticipated Cummins to come in and play like that, but the pitch improved over time. Overall, a nice cricket pitch. According to him, they didn’t get off to a strong start with the bat, but scoring over 70 runs in the last five innings was impressive.

Mentions that they scored runs and took five wickets, and that they won the game, but it will be difficult to swallow. Finally, they state that they have been in this situation before, but that they do not want to be in it again.
