Soon Faf du Plessis fell for one, leaving the team at three runs for the loss of four wickets. Youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad was caught in front of the stumps by a sharp inswinger from Boult in the first over itself. Rayudu got injured, the other batsman were maybe not there 200% and in cricket when you're going through a tough phase, you need a bit of luck. A few more who are on the bench will get games in the coming three games.

MS Dhoni has managed to score 84 runs off 57 balls by Chahal, while the latter has dismissed him twice. Curran also forged a brilliant partnership with spinner Imran Tahir.

Trent Boult bowled a devastating spell and recorded match figures of 4/18 - his best figures in IPL. Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar snared a couple of wickets each while Coulter-Nile chipped in with a wicket of his own.

Mumbai and Chennai, both huge spenders on global stars, are now at opposite ends of the eight team table.

Ishan Kishan enjoyed his promotion at the top of the order as the youngster went after the bowlers right from the word go.

Kishan made 68 from a mere 37 deliveries and the in-form Quinton de Kock finished unbeaten on 46 as the defending champions sealed a thumping win with as many as 7.4 overs to spare.

"We have got to find a way to win the next three games and give guys opportunities to press case for retention next year or for opportunities for other teams".

Meanwhile, CSK continue reeling at the bottom of the table, and their chances of qualifying for the playoffs seem to be getting bleaker with every match that they play. KKR will be desperate for a win given their recent form, while the Capitals will be eager to grab the numero uno spot on the table. Kolkata take on Delhi from 10.50am on Sky Sports Cricket before Kings XI tackle Sunrisers at 2.50pm. Both teams are now in the bottom half of the table and will be looking for wins to push for earning a playoffs spot.
