Match Highlights

Knights bow out in style

Kolkata: The Knight Riders ensured they bowed out of IPL 2010 on a high after defeating a clearly distracted and under-strength Mumbai Indians side by nine wickets.

Sans Sachin, the Mumbai Indians were slow off the mark while the Knight Riders were sharp and hungry for a win. Chasing a meagre 134, Sourav Ganguly made his intentions clear smashing Ali Murtaza for a six off the very first over. Ganguly and Brendon McCullum were particularly aggressive initially as they hammered anything off target.

The Mumbai Indians bowlers couldn’t stem the run flow or make any inroads. But they did taste some success with the ball after Bravo just about managed to snap up a skier from Ganguly’s bat.

Fellow opener McCullum was busy throughout his unbeaten innings of 57 and made up for lost time by guiding KKR to a well deserved nine wicket win.

Earlier, Dwayne Bravo won the toss and elected to bat as the Mumbai Indians think tank decided to make five major changes to their line-up. Openers Aditya Tare and Shikhar Dhawan came and went in a hurry, Shane Bond accounting for both their dismissals.

The away side were looking out of sorts playing a virtual dead rubber, even Mr. Consistent Jean Paul Duminy looked patchy and was put out of his misery by Jaidev Unadkat. But Mumbai had a saviour in the form of Saurabh Tiwary - the youngster has been a revelation this season and he gave a glimpse of his prodigious talent once again.

His masterful 46 off 37 balls gave the Mumbai Indians a necessary run boost. R Sathish and Dwayne Bravo also failed with the bat, giving Tiwary no choice but to go for it himself.

In his bid to increase the run flow Tiwary fell to the guile of Murali Kartik. Ambati Rayudu provided a bit of excitement at the end of the MI innings but it all went one way – that of Kolkata. Mumbai Indians tottered their way to a miserly 133/8 by the end of their allotted overs.

The two sides played with different motivations - the Knight Riders were in it to prove a point or two, while the Mumbai Indians were taking a breather before the bigger battles ahead. In the end, the side with the winning intent and squad to match emerged victors.
