Knight Riders meet with Mumbai Accident!!!

The Knight Riders, after a demolishing performance in their previous outing against the Dare Devils, were left tattered today by the Mumbai Indians. They were bowled out for a record low of 67 in just 15.2 overs. Pollock, Bravo, Raje and Thornley got wickets at regular intervals as the Knight Riders had no answers to the Mumbai bowling. Needing just 68 for victory, the Mumbai Indians started off losing their captain Sachin Tendulkar for a duck. Akhtar getting his wicket. But,J'surya showed no mercy as he flayed the bowling and in the end, Mumbai Indians won in 5.3 overs with 8 wickets in hand. Mumbai Indians with 5 victories are now into the top 4 and they are highly likely to make it to the semis with the kind of menacing form that they are in at present. Sachin Tendulkar created a new IPL record taking 4 catches in the knight riders innings. Mumbai Indians right now look rejuvenated and are rocking!!!
