Mumbai Indians finally register their first victory on UAE soil and that too in an emphatic manner. Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah were absolutely phenomenal as MI beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 39 runs at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. With this, the Men in Blue & Gold have also opened their account in the team standings. Chasing 196 for victory, the Dinesh Karthik-led side never looked in the hunt as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Big-hitters like Andre Russell and Eoin Morgan failed to make an impact as Kolkata felt well short of the required total. KKR vs MI Highlights IPL 2020 Match 5.
