Mumbai had earlier scored 182 for eight thanks to fine innings from Cameron Green (41) and Suryakumar Yadav (33) and a 38-ball 66-run partnership between the two. Tilak Verma (26 off 22 balls) and Nihal Wadhera (23 off 12 balls) played useful innings. The Supergiants team was in a good position by scoring 69 runs for two wickets but after that Krunal lost his wicket by playing a bad shot off Piyush Chawla and then the team lost wickets continuously.

Krunal admitted that he should not have played that shot. He said after the match, ‘We were in a really good position. Everything started when I played that shot… that shot should not have been played and I take the blame entirely on myself.

Krunal said there was no problem with the wicket, it was just that his team didn’t bat well. He said, ‘The wicket played equally in both the innings. We just had to bat better. On the decision not to play Quinton Dickock in this match, Krunal said, ‘Kyle (Myers) had a better record here (than Dickock). We just thought we could go with Kyle.
