Pollard was expensive with the ball as he conceded 26 runs in two overs and he did not pick up a wicket. With the bat as well he failed to impress. He scored 15 off 16 balls.
Meanwhile, Mumbai lost the match by 53 runs. 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. Kolkata will play Hyderabad in their next game.
