“It was the team effort that pleased me the most. We don’t depend on a few individuals to take us through, there are a lot of characters who put their hand up and took us through. Today, the entire bowling attack used the pitch and their variations really well to keep a line up like KKR quiet. It is something we know about the IPL that the business end matters, we always come back well in the second half of this tournament. In all the three trophies that we’ve won, the boys have picked themselves up in the business end,” said Rohit Sharma after the win.
Meanwhile, the win also ensured Mumbai go top of the points table which means they will get two shots at the final which is a massive advantage to have.
Earlier in the day, the bowlers kept it tight and got wickets at regular intervals to keep KKR to a low score. KKR could manage merely 133/7 in their allotted 20 overs.
Mumbai Indians will now lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad who became the first ever team in IPL history to make it to the playoffs with merely 12 points.
