MI vs KKR Live Score: In today's 41st Indian Premier League 2018 match, Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians meets Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Garden, Kolkata. After losing five of their first six games, they won three out of the remaining four to close the gap between them and Kolkata Knight Riders who are at fourth place in the IPL table.

In Sunday's game at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, it was Kolkata Knight Riders who won the toss and decided that they would be bowling first.

Ishan ended the over with a helicopter shot that would surely make his Ranchi mentor MS Dhoni smile as MI scored 73 runs in five middle overs to reach to 145/3 in 15 overs from being a modest 72/2 midway into their innings. He even bagged the man of the match title for his brilliant innings. KKR, who folded up their chase for 108 have also been on the receiving end of another heavy defeat which came at the hands of the Delhi Daredevils.

Sunil Narine was out just after 2 balls to McClenaghan and KKR were 4-1. We are going to play a good game tonight.

Yadav and Lewis, who got a life on?38′, continued their brutal assault as the hosts raced to 82/0 in just eight overs.

Kolkata now holds 10 points with 5 wins from 10 matches and needs at least three wins from their four games to maintain their lead from the teams in the bottom half. KKR's strategy of not opening with Narine nearly backfired when Gill got out cheaply but thanks to Uthappa's fifty and Nitish Rana's 31 (27), they got back into the game. Rohit Sharma (36, 31b) came out to bat one down in this match. The KKR batsman could not sustain Mumbai's bowling attack. Our win-loss record isn't great against them. Pandya has so far taken 14 wickets in nine matches, the joint highest wicket-taker along with Umesh Yadav (14 scalps, 10 matches).

Earlier, Ishan was all blitz as he tore into celebrated India wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav 3/43), smacking him for four successive sixes and taking 25 runs off the 14th over.

Following the match he 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. The opening partnership of Sunil Narine and Chris Lynn was broken with the former sent back for 4 runs. Tom Curran managed to sneak into the double digits before returning to the dugout for 18 runs, Piyush Chawla was dispatched for 11 in the meantime.
