A good overall performance by the RR team. Bowling, fielding and catching was good. Batsman played sensibly and scored the required runs.
This was RR's last match in mumbai, next they play in Delhi. Hoping they will continue their winning momentum.

On the other hand KKR made too many mistakes. Run-outs, wrong shots was the highlight of their batting. KKR needs to figure out their top order batting problems.
This was KKR's last match in mumbai, next they play in Ahmedabad.
