“It was good, coming back (after getting dropped) and opening the innings. Feels good, when the team wins you naturally feel happy. It’s important to contribute, with the bat, or ball or in the field. Fielding is very important for me and so is bowling. Unfortunately I didn’t get a lot of overs, but whatever overs I get, I ensure I do the job that the captain wants me to do. It’s my job to go out there and give my team a good start. My intent is always positive and aggressive, sometimes it comes off, sometimes it doesn’t,” he said at the post-match presentation.

For Mumbai, Jasprit Bumrah was the star with the ball as he picked up a career-best five for 10 in four overs to restrict KKR to 165 for nine in 20 overs.

Brief Scores: Kolkata Knight Riders: 165/9 in 20 overs (Venkatesh Iyer 43, Nitish Rana 43; Jasprit Bumrah 5/10). Mumbai Indians: 113 all out in 17.3 overs (Ishan Kishan 51; Pat Cummins 3/22).

While MI were already out of the play-off race, KKR, who have five wins from 12 games, can still sneak into the top four with two games remaining.
