IPL3. Day.39. Match.56. Mumbai Indians vs Kolkatta Knight Riders.


In a dud match of no consequence, Kolkatta Knight Riders 135 for one beat Mumbai Indians 133 for 8. by nine wickets.

Mumbai Indians rested Sachin, Malinga, Pollard, Zaheer, Harbhajan, to keep them fresh for the knockout semi finals. Saurab Tiwary 46 of 37, J.P.Duminy 19 of 27 and Ambatti Rayudu 27 of 15 contributed to then team total. Shane Bond with 2 for 24, and Murali Kartik with 2 for 20, bowled well. Dinda and Unadkat captured a wicket each.

Kolkatta Knight Riders playing for pride, were given a steady start by Ganguly 42 of 36 and McCullum an unbeaten 57 of 56. They put on 97 runs ain 13.5 overs. David Hussey joined McCullum and with 20 of 14, completed the formalities of scoring 135 for one to give KKR,
its seventh victory. KKR registerd its first victory in six meetings with Mumbai Indians.
So it is Mumbai Indians vs Royal Challenegrs & Chennai Super Kings vs Deccan Chargers in the semi finals. Any team can take the title. But my vote goes for Mumbai Indians.
