Hardik's helicopter- wins Pollard's applause


Kolkata - Basirhat Road, Raghunathpur, West Bengal, India

Rohit Sharma's call to bat first is starting to look like a masterstroke here. Krunal Pandya has played an absolute gem here, and his brother Hardik Pandya is adding the cherry on the cake with his hitting. On a taylor-made strip for Keemo Paul, he has gone for 37 runs in his three overs. From 104 for 3 in 15 overs, MI have raced away to 135 for 4 in 18 overs - an effort worth its weight in gold on this pitch. If MI can tee off in the last two overs too and get anywhere between 150 and 160, DC are going to find it hard to keep their winning run alive.

Rabada strikes!

It's the sort of pitch where you can't fault Suryakumar Yadav for trying to shuffle across and scoop Kagiso Rabada. Rabada bowled short but there wasn't enough bounce on it - thanks to the sluggish pitch - for Suryakumar to pull off his shot. The ball flew off the outside edge and Rishabh Pant took a good diving catch.
