Earlier, the Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to field first and they made one forced change to the playing XI as Ramandeep Singh replaced Suryakumar Yadav, who has been injured and ruled out of the entire tournament.
On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders once again made plenty of changes to the playing XI as Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Pat Cummins, Sheldon Jackson and Ajinkya Rahane replaced Shivam Mavi, Anukul Roy, Aaron Finch, Baba Indrajith and Harshit Rana in the playing XI.
Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane opened the innings for the Knight Riders and all-rounder Daniel Sams opened the attack for Mumbai Indians and he gave away just 4 runs in the first over.
In the 6th over Kumar Kartikeya got the first breakthrough for Mumbai Indians (MI) by dismissing opening batsman Venkatesh Iyer, who scored 43 runs off 24 balls, including 3 fours and 4 sixes, and at the end of the powerplay, KKR were at 64 / 1.
Kumar Kartikeya picked up the second wicket of the match by dismissing Ajinkya Rahane for 25 in the 11th over. Soon Shreyas Iyer was cleaned up by Murugan Ashwin in the 14th over. In the 15th over Jasprit Bumrah produced a two-wicket over by dismissing Andre Russell and Nitish Rana.
Then, Bumrah produced a magical triple wicket maiden over in the 18th over of the match by dismissing Sheldon Jackson, Pat Cummins and Sunil Narine. With the help of Bumrah’s magical spell and other bowlers ’decent performance, Mumbai Indians were able to restrict Kolkata Knight Riders at 165/9.
Chasing the target, Rohit Sharma was dismissed for 2 in the first over by pacer Tim Southee and 19-year-old Tilak Varma was dismissed by Andre Russell in the 5th over. At the end of the powerplay, Mumbai Indians were at 37/2.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan and Ramandeep Singh had a 37 runs partnership before the latter was dismissed by Andre Russell in the 11th over.
After that, it was MI’s batting horror show as Tim David was dismissed by Varun Chakravarthy in the 13th over and Pat Cummins produced a 3-wicket over in the 15th over by dismissing Ishan Kishan, Daniel Sams and Murugan Ashwin. In the end, Kieron Pollard failed once again and the Mumbai Indians were bowled out for 113.
Here’s How Twitter Reacted To IPL 2022 Match Between MI and KKR:
If #KKR‘s innings ended in shambles after a rousing start, #MI‘s was a disaster right through, ruining Bumrah’s magnificent bowling effort. Mumbai sink deeper into a hole. KKR is still short of being at their best. But importantly still alive in the tournament!

Excellent use of bowlers so far by #KKR. Using the pace of Russell early and keeping the spinner for David.

The first time since 2014 KKR have defeated MI twice in a season, and the first time ever that they have whitewashed both MI and CSK!
WHAT A MEMORABLE SEASON. Who cares about anything else, THIS IS EVEN BIGGER THAN THE TITLE !! 😂😭😭😍😂

Bowled out for 113 Mumbathe Mumbai Indians aren’t a serious cricketing team 🤞

Two thing that Mumbai indians have done with a brainless mind.
One is winning the toss and decided to field first despite knowing that they are weak while chasing.
2ndly, Pollard time is over .. He should kick out from the plahing xi. Let him realize by making a seat for dugout
