Mumbai Indians enters IPL 2017 Finals thrashing Kolkata Knight Riders

Despite losing a few early wickets, they managed to reach the target easily, Krunal Pandya showing off his versatility by playing a handsome cameo. The KKR skipper will have to open the innings if Kolkata intends to take on a rival against whom they haven't won a single game this season.

Yesterday, the next-door neighbor of the Mumbai Indians, Rising Pune Supergiant had the match under control all throughout at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

"Man of the Match" was awarded to Karn Sharma who said, "My bowling is come out well, it wasn't great past year but I have worked hard on it".

Ishank Jaggi (28) and Surayakumar Yadav (31) put on 56 runs for the sixth wicket in 47 balls, during which they belted five fours and one six, and saved KKR from further embarrassment. "The main motivation when I get a game is to perform for the team and help the team win", Sharma said.

The horror that Kolkata Knight Riders inflicted on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday night was today meted out to them by Mumbai Indians, resulting in the latter making their way through to the final of the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League on Sunday.

Krunal proceeded to finish unbeaten on 45 off 30 balls, which included eight boundaries, as the Indians reached their target with 33 balls to spare.

Australian fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile (3-20) had Williamson caught at extra cover and later took a splendid diving catch off his follow-through to dismiss Chris Jordan (0), who was playing his first game in the IPL.

Man of the Match Karn Sharma was the pick of the bowlers for MI, courtesy his haul of four wickets for 16 runs.

Mumbai's initial progress in reply was uncertain, Piyush Chawla trapping Lendl Simmons lbw and bowling Ambati Rayudu inside the first six overs, either side of Parthiv Patel edging Umesh Yadav behind. The Railways' player said being left out of the team in the initial phase of the league didn't affect him much.

Batting great and panel expert Sunil Gavaskar also said in the post-match show that even if SRH had the best bowling attack in the world, it would have been next to impossible to defend a total of 48 with 10 wickets in hand. We're not dependent on one individual.

"Today was a flawless example as we played a great game".
