So how did you guys like this match where Kolkata beat Mumbai by 52 runs!! That’s all for today, now you will meet again tomorrow with the match between Lucknow and Gujarat. Till then, give us permission and take care of yourself, hello…
Man of the match award was given to Jasprit Bumrah for his superb bowling. After achieving this, Jassi, who came to talk, said that we were in a good position but in the end we made a mistake, due to which we lost the match and its sad. Said on my wickets that I don’t look at the numbers, just keep focusing on my bowling. I always look to do better for the team. Now forget what happened this year and focus on doing better next year.
Kolkata captain Shreyas Iyer, who came to talk after winning the match, said that we had lost the last match by a huge margin. Now, winning this match, he has kept his hope of going into the top four. Further Iyer said that I was relieved after getting Pollard’s wicket. Shreyas Iyer said on the way that I am happy that our team played better and we won the match.
The prize distribution ceremony will happen shortly from now on, stay with us…
Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma, who came to talk after losing the match, told that this score was going to earn. We bowled very well and Bumrah was brilliant today but our batting collapsed due to which we lost the match. Rohit further said that the pitch was helpful for bowling but we had to play carefully in our innings which we could not do.
On the other hand, in today’s match, Mumbai fought brilliantly in the first innings but Rohit and Company were completely shattered in the run chase. After winning the toss, Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma’s decision of run chase proved to be wrong. A dangerous batting line-up like Kolkata was restricted to just 165 runs after a brilliant start. It looked like Rohit’s team would easily achieve this target but the run chase was completely shattered in front of Kolkata’s strong bowling and the rest of the work was done by three consecutive run outs at the end. Today it seemed that the Mumbai team was batting under some pressure. Or it should be said that today was the day of the players of Kolkata. Whatever he was doing was becoming successful. But in my view it will be even more disappointing moment for Mumbai.
Mumbai could not make a hat-trick of victory!! Kolkata won by 52 runs in do or die match. Shreyas and Army are still in the race for the play-offs by securing two important points. In the batting today, this team did not show life but did a wonderful performance in the bowling and did not allow Mumbai with a great batting line-up to achieve the score of 166. At present, scoring two points, Kolkata has 10 points on the board and now it has moved above Chennai in the points table. Iyer & Co. still need to win further matches or else their journey will end before the play-offs.
