KKR get the win in the end after a late charge by MI. A great display of batting by both teams and in the end the early wickets cost Mumbai. For KKR this win could help them regain some momentum to possibly get one of the final two spaces in the play-offs, for Mumbai they still have breathing space between them and the rest of the pack, but they need to win one more game to make sure they get to the play-offs.
