MI and KKR met in the second qualifier to gain the rights to play RPS in finals of the IPL 10 on 21st May, 2017 in Hyderabad.
The pitch at Bengaluru was supposed to play slow, but this pitch proved to slowest of all. MI decided to bowl first after winning the toss and KKR were hoping to make a match out of it. However, their hopes were dashed when Lynn was dismissed for 5 runs on board and then it was the Karn Sharma show, who picked 4 wickets for 16 runs in 4 overs.
Suryakumar Yadav made 31 and Ishank Jaggi made 28 runs, but even they couldn’t rally the team enough and KKR were bundled for 107 runs in 18.5 overs.
Twitter was buzzing with tweets over this brilliant bowling performance by MI. And we have collected some tweets for you.
