Kieron Pollard, the big-hitting West Indian all-rounder, also had a late cameo, bowling Pat Cummins for 22 off 5 balls in the match’s last over.
Krunal Pandya has the highest strike rate in an innings in IPL history, with 440.00 in a match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2020, followed by Kieron Pollard with 440.00 in the present IPL against Kolkata Knight Riders.
Due to a good partnership between Venkatesh Iyer and Sam Billings, Kolkata Knight Riders’ innings has gotten back on track. As they seek to chase down 162 against Mumbai Indians, the franchise would like to keep the streak going.
Earlier in the innings, KKR lost opener Ajinkya Rahane to Tymal Mills in the fifth over, ending a 16-run opening stand. Daniel Sams removed KKR captain Shreyas Iyer in the following over, giving Mumbai Indians the upper hand in the match. Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma contributed 52 and 38 runs, respectively, to Mumbai Indians’ 161/4 total against Kolkata Knight Riders.
