Mumbai Indians entered the final of the Indian Premier League with a convincing six-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the second qualifier at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru last night. Opting to field after Rohit Sharma won the toss, Mumbai bowled out Kolkata for a paltry 107 in 18.5 overs, and then chased down the target for the loss of four wickets with 33 balls to spare. Krunal Pandya showed maturity, finishing as Mumbai's top scorer with 45 off 30 balls, while Rohit contributed 26.

Earlier, KKR were off to a disastrous start and reeling at 31 for five at one stage. Suryakumar Yadav 31 and Ishank Jaggi 28 were the main contributor. Man of the Match Karn Sharma was the star performer with the ball for Mumbai, returning excellent figures of 4 for 16 while Jasprit Bumrah provided fine support to pick 3 for 7 in three overs. 

Two-time winner Mumbai Indians will now lock horns with Rising Pune Supergiants in the title clash in Hyderabad at 8 PM tomorrow.
