He was well supported by Lokesh Rahul, who chipped in with 69 runs off 54 balls with the help of seven fours and one six.

Nicholas Pooran also chipped in with crucial cameo of 25 runs off just 8 balls with the help of three sixes.

Mumbai Indians

Four-time Champions will keen to bring their A-game to the table in this fixture. In their previous game, Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to bowl first. The decision backfired completely as the side conceded more than 200 runs in their full quota of overs.

For Mumbai Indians, Left-arm quick Trent Boult was the pick of the bowlers and finished with figures of 2 for 34 in his four overs. James Pattinson and Jasprit Bumrah looked ordinary on the night and conceded 10 runs an over against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Chasing 202 runs for victory, Mumbai Indians got off to a shaky start as Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav perished for low scores. Quinton de Kock also failed to capitalize on his good start and perished in the 6th over to see Mumbai Indians lose their third wicket with 39 runs on the board.

Playing his first game in place of injured Saurabh Tiwary, Ishan Kishan delivered a scintillating performance with the bat. He stitched crucial partnerships with Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard to keep Mumbai in the hunt to win the game.

Ishan Kishan well just one run short of what could have been spectacular hundred for Mumbai Indians. He smashed two boundaries and nine sixes in his innings. Kishan was well supported by Skipper Kieron Pollard, who smashed unbeaten 60 off 24 balls with the help of three fours and five sixes.

Due to Pollard smashing a boundary off the final over of the innings, Mumbai Indians were able to level the scores.In the super-over Eliminator, Kieron Pollard struggled to produce big shots against the pace of Navdeep Saini.
