It was that kind of a day. Wickets fell in heaps, runs were hard to come by and it needed some mind and application to let the willow do the talking. Kolkata Knight Riders could manage just 107 – a total which wasn’t a total you would want in a playoff against a strong side like Mumbai Indians, as KKR captain Gautam Gambhir put it. KKR did have their moments though while defending the below par total with three wickets falling in quick succession. But, that joy was limited as Krunal Pandya stood tall finishing the game off in style with an unbeaten 45. Krunal will now be playing his maiden IPL final alongside his brother Hardik who is no stranger to an IPL grand finale.
How did Krunal Pandya script a Mumbai Indians victory at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, what are the run of emotions for the elder one entering his first IPL grand finale? Is there a mini battle going on between the Pandya brothers this IPL? Here’s Hardik Pandya reporting from Bengaluru as he tries to find answers to his questions in a candid chat for IPLT20.com.
