Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag lauded Mumbai Indians for snatching the victory from the jaws of defeat against KKR on Tuesday. Needing 31 runs in the last five overs with 6 wickets in hand, KKR made a meal of the chase and fell 10 runs short in the end.

Kolkata Knight Riders played well till the first fifteen overs. They restricted Mumbai Indians to 152 runs in the first innings. Andre Russell picked five wickets in just two overs and thereby became the second bowler to pick a five-wicket haul against MI.
