Andre Russell: I have been working very hard behind the scenes, taking the responsibility. There’s a possibility of going for runs (in the death over), but there’s always a chance to take wickets. I always keep stretching in the field and jogging around, you got to be ready in the 18th over. Bowling against Hardik and Pollard is always a difficult thing, happy we could restrict them. It’s always good to get Polly (Pollard) out early, we all know what he can do.
Earlier Mumbai Indians started on a bad note as they lost Quinton De Kock early but SuryaKumar Yadav’s 56 (35 balls) gave them the foundation for a decent score. Sky along with his captain Rohit Sharma added 76 of 51 balls for the 2nd wicket.
SuryaKumar completed his 12th IPL 50 off just 33 balls. But after his departure, MI lost Ishan Kishan (1) quickly.
For KKR – other than Russell, Pat Cummins bowled beautifully to pick 2 wickets for just 24 of his 4 overs.
Earlier Kolkata Knight Riders won the toss and opted to field. KKR decided to go with the same XI which played the 1st match. Mumbai Indians made one change, as they brought Quinton De Kock in place of 1st match highest scorer Chris Lynn.

Rohit Sharma said: ‘We would have fielded first as well. There was some dew in the first game against RCB, but the ball was turning. Last game we were 20 runs short, so we need to bat well. Of course you want to win every game, but we didn’t play to our potential in the first game. We need to understand our mistake and learn from it. We got only 30 runs in the last 4 overs, that was our mistake. Let’s hope we rectify our mistakes. Lynn misses and de Kock is back’
Morgan said, ‘We are going to bowl first. Looks similar to the last one, not sure if the dew will come in. We are delighted, we are trying to play aggressive brand of cricket. It’s a challenge to continue in that manner. No changes in the side’
