MI vs KKR IPL 2023

Venkatesh Iyer’s ton in vain as Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wicket

IPL 2023 MI vs KKR Highlights: 

After an underwhelming start to the season, Mumbai Indians (MI) secured back-to-back wins as they secured a five-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2023 clash at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Chasing a stiff 186, Rohit Sharma, who came in as an Impact Substitute, gave Mumbai a good start with Ishan Kishan, who was the agressor between the two. The pair added 65 together, before Suyash Sharma removed Rohit for 20(13). Ishan also fell shortly after being cleaned up by a Varun Chakravarthy yorker for 58(25). Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma kept Mumbai driving forward as the pair added 60 runs for the third wicket and swung the momentum into Mumbai’s favour. Tim David slammed an unbeaten 24 off 13 deliveries as Mumbai completed the run chase with 2.2 overs to spare. Earlier, Venkatesh Iyer knocked his first IPL ton, before getting out for 104 off 51 balls. He walked into bat after KKR lost Jagadeesan for 0. However, he maintained an attacking approach and completed his half-century in 23 balls and then touched the triple digit mark in 49 balls. However, KKR struggled in the death overs and could only manage to accumulate 45 runs in the final five overs. 

Mumbai Indians played a stupendous inning and defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wickets. MI had to chase the wining target of 186 which they did at the loss of 5 wickets. Kolkata Knight Riders had managed to score 185 runs at the loss of six wickets. KKR’s Venkatesh Iyer was the star player and impressed everyone with his brillinat innings. Iyer slammed MIs at their home ground and hit this season’s first century! “Playing this game in Mumbai is special but the job is still half done,” Iyer said after KKR’s stupendous innings.
