Highlights: Rana, Pandya brothers set up intense win

Mumbai Indians beat Kolkata Knight Riders in a thrilling game, which might just be the best of the season so far. Lynn and Gambhir started things off for KKR, but it was Manish Pandey who guided KKR’s innings, scoring a fantastic 81 off 47 deliveries as the other batsmen around him didn’t do too well. Watch him smash McClenaghan during the course of his innings:

As MI began their chase, Buttler and Parthiv Patel provided a solid foundation by scoring quickly and adding 65 runs for the first wicket. Ankit Rajpoot and Kuldeep Yadav then bowled extremely well to pick up some crucial wickets and restrict MI’s scoring rate. Just when things were looking to be going KKR’s way, Nitish Rana first put up a partnership with Kieron Pollard and then with Hardik Pandya to set MI up for a win. Pandya finished the game off in style and gave MI their first points of the season. Watch Rana’s ‘dil-scoop’ executed to perfection:
