The Pandya brother picked up two each with the other bowlers wrapping up the KKR innings to dismiss them for a petty 108. Mumbai Indians have suddenly risen in the tables with consecutive wins.

The Mumbai Indians have thumped the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, with Mitchell McClenaghan again among the wickets.

The Aussie pack: Facing an improbable run chase and armed with a license to go for broke, it was another frustrating innings for Chris Lynn in a scenario that appeared tailor-made for the six-hitting superstar. But all such hopes were nipped in the bud when indecision cost the Knight Riders their second wicket. Narine top edged in the first over and Lynn was run out in a mix-up with Robin Uthappa.

But a disgusting mixed up in the fourth over led to Lynn being run out as the home side were reduced to 32 for two.

The teenage wicket keeper said, "It's always good for a youngster to bat up the order and when your skipper and the franchise is backing you, it's just about playing your game".

None of the KKR batsmen stayed long enough at the crease to make any difference and the pressure of the huge total was telling on them through out the innings.

The first ball of that over was steered by Nitish Rana to point, but a miscommunication with his captain sent Dinesh Karthik back for 5.

Ishan Kishan's four and Sixes got up MI and MI was 97/2 after 12 overs.

Mumbai wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan was the star of the day as he smashed a record 21-ball 62 to help the defending champions score 210 for six at the Eden Gardens.

However, it was against Kuldeep in the 14th over that Kishan truly opened up.

The bulk of Mumbai's runs - 148 - came from boundaries. I was assessing the pitch at that point, ball was sticking in the pitch, it wasn't easy, but he changed the game.

Rohit and Kishan stepped up on the run rate, especially the left-handed Kishan who hit the ball around the park.

Kuldep retrurned most expensive with 43 runs from his three overs, followed by Chawla who took 3/48 but was at his expensive best. In 21 matches between the two teams, MI have won 17 of them, the most wins for any IPL team against any opponent.

MI openers Evin Lewis and Suryakumar Yadav started well with the bat before the former got out in the last over of the powerplay for 18.

Mumbai were 62/2 inside nine overs.
