Pat Cummins, the man of the moment, walked out to bat when KKR supporters in the stands were stunned to silence as Andre Russell perished for just 11. KKR were on 101 for 5 in 13.1 overs, still needing a demanding 61 off 41 balls. He brought down the equation to 47 off 36 with a flick well over deep midwicket and a cut placed neatly between point and short third man. A ball before he wrapped up the chase with a six, he bashed a 14-ball half-century – the joint-fastest with KL Rahul.

Brief Scores: Mumbai Indians 161/4 in 20 overs (Suryakumar Yadav 52, Tilak Varma 38*, Dewald Brevis 29; Pat Cummins 2-49) lost to Kolkata Knight Riders 162/5 in 16 overs (Pat Cummins 56*, Venkatesh Iyer 50*; Murugan Ashwin 3-25) by 5 wickets.
