Karthik: 'KKR still has great chance to make IPL playoffs'

Ishan, who has been waiting to make an impression for the last five matches, pounced on the KKR bowlers like a hungry tiger.

He walked in during the first time-out, with Mumbai 62 for 2 in nine overs, and soon hit a six and three fours off wristspinners Kuldeep Yadav and Piyush Chawla.

Kolkata Knight Riders owner Shah Rukh Khan felt compelled to apologise for his team's "lack of spirit" after their IPL loss to Mumbai Indians on Wednesday. Kumar, after this, went on to become the second wicket. Due to his onslaught, MI went from 62/2 in 9 overs to 144/3 in 14.4 overs, when he departed with a score of 62 from just 21 balls. Ishan tried to clear the deep square leg boundary just after hitting a six but picked out Robin Uthappa. Pandya ended the night with figures of 2/16 and an economy of 5.33 having bowled 11 dot balls. Bowled perfectly well throughout the over trying multiple variations, apart from last delivery which added another four runs in MI's kitty. Hardik Pandya scored 19 and Ben Cutting managed 28 runs. "I understand stats wise, maybe as a team, KKR has not (played well against Mumbai), but this is a new team with a lot of new players, so we were hardly aware of these things".

Chasing a mammoth total is never an easy challenge, and a solid start is needed to get anywhere close.

But the 26-year-old Trinidadian could not make the most of the reprieve, getting out in odd fashion trying to pull a loose Chawla delivery with the ball ballooning off the back of his bat to short third man where Chris Lynn took an easy catch. He just came in and changed momentum.

On the fifth ball of the 16 over of MI's innings, umpire KN Ananthapadmanabhan called a Tom Curran delivery to Rohit Sharma a no-ball for overstepping.

"200 is always a big ask".

"So, if we win the games, I know we have a great chance of getting to the playoffs".

In terms of his hopes for the rest of the season, Karthik said that the team needs to raise their skill level and believe in themselves for the remaining league matches.
