On a high-scoring, field-first ground, and fighting considerable dew, Kolkata Knight Riders nearly won with an under-par 178 but failed to defend 59 in the last 23 balls. In the cauldron, with the home crowd burning their ears and a wet ground underfoot, the visiting Knight Riders just froze in the field after taking out almost all the big guns from Mumbai Indians.

Rohit receives reprimand Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has been reprimanded by match referee Sunil Chaturvedi for showing excessive and obvious disappointment with the umpire's decision when he was adjudged lbw by CK Nandan. Rohit admitted to the Level 1 offence, 2.1.5 of the IPL Code of Conduct.The incident occurred in the 10th over of Mumbai's chase when Rohit went onto the back foot to play a flat offbreak delivery from Sunil Narine and got a thick inside edge onto his pad. Narine and his team-mates appealed vociferously for lbw and Nandan gave it out within seconds. Rohit was visibly upset with the decision and stood his ground for a few seconds before walking off slowly. TV cameras also appeared to film Rohit saying a few words towards Nandan as he walked past the umpire.Replays later showed Rohit had also let out a big scream as soon as he was given out, and subsequently held his bat up in a gesture to indicate he had edged it.
