A very good comeback from Prasidh after being hit for a boundary. He has been expensive so far but has got the big fish now. A nice change up from Prasidh. He rolls his fingers on this one and bowls it on off. Hardik looks to go over mid off but the bat turns in his hands and the lack of pace sees him just hit it in the air and straight to the fielder. Andre Russell there takes the catch with ease. Gutsy from Prasidh and Morgan to keep mid off up against Hardik who is a strong player down the ground. The gamble has worked and Mumbai, just like the previous game have not started the death overs well.

Not often do we say that but tonight the Mumbai skipper just was not at his usual best. Pacy good length delivery around off. Cummins hits the deck hard and makes the ball come back in. Rohit looks to play it away from his body but ends up getting a thick inside edge onto the stumps. Massive wicket for Kolkata as they know how dangerous Rohit could have been.

Cummins bangs it in short and directs it well too. It is right on the body. Ishan Kishan loves to hook. He goes for it but he is not in control of it. It goes to the right of fine leg.

01.61.6: Varun Chakaravarthy to Quinton de Kock, OUT! CAUGHT! Very good catch from Rahul Tripathi and Morgan's plan to start with two spinners has been rewarded. De Kock's start to the 2021 season is not a glorious one. It is very short and he is out of here. Varun Chakaravarthy, who was the star last season strikes early in this game.
