Mumbai win for the 21st time in 27 games against Kolkata
Here are a few noteworthy stats from the game between MI and KKR

The contest between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders saw a few milestones achieved. Here is a look at the statistical highlights from the 32nd match of IPL 2020: 

Pat Cummins puts up his best batting performance

There is always a huge dependency on Kolkata Knight Riders ace pacer, Pat Cummins to provide them with a good head-start with the ball. However against Mumbai Indians there was a shift in his role. Kolkata were five down for a score of 61, when Cummins stepped into bat in the 11th over. Though Eoin Morgan was at the other end, it was Cummins who was the aggressor. Coming into bat at number 7, Cummins got to a 35-ball half-century, which was his first in T20s. Previously, his highest score of 39 in T20s came against the Perth Scorchers. On a special note, Cummins has scored 126 runs this season at a strike rate of 161.5, no other Kolkata batsman has a strike rate of over 150.

Fourth-best sixth wicket partnership for Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR's top order batsmen were run through by a strong MI pace attack. Then the young legspinner, Rahul Chahar provided a double breakthrough in the eighth over when he packed off Shubman Gill and Dinesh Karthik in consecutive deliveries. In grave danger, Kolkata’s newly appointed skipper, Morgan and Cummins joined hands in an attempt of resistance. The duo put on an 87-run partnership for the sixth wicket to propel Kolkata to a total of 148, a decent enough total considering the situation they were in. This 87-run partnership between Morgan and Cummins is the fourth-best sixth wicket partnership for Kolkata in IPL.

First 50-run opening partnership for Mumbai Indians

Chasing a meagre target of 149, MI openers, Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock were on top gear from the word go. As always, de Kock was the warmonger among the two. The duo of Rohit and de Kock bought up their first 50-run stand of this season inside the Powerplay. Further, they went on to add 44 more runs before Rohit edged one off Shivam Mavi's first over which was the 11th of the innings. The 94-run opening stand is their second highest partnership in IPL 2020. The 119-run partnership between Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard against Royal Challengers Bangalore is their highest.

Second-fastest half-century for Quinton de Kock in IPL

When in flow, de Kock is one of the most destructive batsman. His strength has always been his aggressive intent during the Powerplay. Against KKR, keeping in mind his record against spinners, de Kock made a cautious approach against the likes of Chris Green and Varun Chakravarthy. However, he was brutal against the pacers as he scored at a strike rate of 223.1. He got to his half-century in 25 balls, which is his second-fastest in IPL. De Kock’s fastest 50 (22 balls) came against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2016 in Bengaluru when he was playing for Delhi Capitals.

Mumbai Indians continue their domination against Kolkata Knight Riders

It’s just not the bowlers who have bunnies, there are a couple of teams as well like Mumbai, who have a team as their bunny. Kolkata have had nightmares against Mumbai in IPL. Overall, Kolkata have won only six times out of the 27 matches they have played against each other, handing Mumbai a 77.7 percent win record. The 21 wins by Mumbai against Kolkata is the most wins against a team in the IPL. Overall in T20s, the 21 wins are the third-most. Nottinghamshire have won 23 matches out of their 31 matches against Derbyshire, which is the most wins against a team in T20s.
