On the other hand, KKR who have shown reluctance in changing their playing 11 frequently could very well continue the same pattern.

Today is the 41st match of the IPL 2018 and the match is between Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians.

Take a look at how all the players fared in this match.

At the Eden Gardens, Kishan came in at No. 4 with his side in trouble having just lost their in-form opener in Suryakumar Yadav. Kuldeep Yadav (5 runs) was the last man to departs as MI completed a dominant win. He later got out on 62 in just 21 balls with 5 fours and 6 sixes.

Ishan's astounding performance featured some fine footwork and exemplary shot selection as he bludgeoned six sixes, including four on-the-trot off Kuldeep in the 14th over. However, it didn't seem like a score they couldn't manage. MI collected 98 runs in the last seven overs of their innings.

Of the Mumbai bowlers, Mitchell McClenaghan had the worst economy of 8.00 in 3 overs and conceding 24 runs.

Krunal Pandya (8*) finished the innings with a six off Chawla after Cutting had holed out off the penultimate ball. His only victim turned out to be Chawla as well.

Ishan's destructive innings had six sixes and he was particularly severe on the Knight Riders' spinners. Yadav's opening partner Evin Lewis (45 off 28) too made a valuable contribution in the 91-run stand. Later, he effected the crucial run-out of Chris Lynn and also took two important catches to dismiss Robin Uthappa and Chawla.

The 19-year-old didn't forget to thank the Mumbai Indians management for showing faith in him. There was not even a flicker of hope for the home side as wickets kept tumbling one after the other. With the race for the playoff spots becoming intense, the time is now for KKR to string together a series of wins, according to an official press release. 'You can hit well just look at the ball and get with the flow'. He bowled his usual tight line and lengths, mixed with the occasional yorkers and slower deliveries.

Uthappa was the third batsman to go as he hit straight to Suryakumar Yadav at deep midwicket off a Mayank Markande delivery in the seventh over and Andrew Russell followed suit the next over, after being deceived by a Hardik Pandya slow delivery.

KKR has exceptionally improved their death bowling but their woes during the powerplay with both batting and bowling needs to addressed as soon as possible.
