Abu Dhabi, October 16
Kolkata Knight Riders scored 148 for five against Mumbai Indians in an Indian Premier League match here on Friday.
Batting first, KKR’s pace spearhead Pat Cummins top-scored with an unbeaten 36-ball 53 while new captain Eoin Morgan remained not out on 39 off 29 balls at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, even as the other established batsmen failed to impress.
Earlier, Kolkata Knight Riders made two changes in their team, replacing opener Tom Banton and pacer Kamlesh Nagarkoti with mystery spinner Chris Green and speedster Shivam Mavi.
Mumbai Indians played Nathan Coulter-Nile in place of James Pattinson.
