KKR vs MI 2021 Highlights – Set just 153 to win this IPL match, Eoin Morgan’s Kolkata side fell short, and were the architects of their own downfall.
KKR did well in restricting the Mumbai Indians to just 152 all out from their 20 Overs, and at the half way stage, they must have felt confident of winning.
When batting, Nitish Rana and Shubman Gill got KKR off to a flyer. They were 72/0 from 8.4 Overs and seemingly coasting to victory when Shubman became the first batsman to go. And after that, what can only be described as sheer panic set in.
Even when Nitish himself got out, KKR was still in the box seat. After the openers dismissal, KKR were 122/4 from 15 Overs. They needed just 31 runs from 30 balls with 6 wickets left. What would be described as a walk in the park at this level.
More chaos was too follow instead though, and off the remaining 30 balls, KKR could only manage another 20 runs, for the loss of 3 more wickets.
I’m not really sure how anybody could really explain what happened.
