Cuttack: Defending champion Mumbai slipped to another defeat, against the Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday to find themselves in danger of missing out on the Playoffs berth. Batting first, they made a mere 141 for 5 in the stipulated overs. KKR surpassed the target with six wickets and eight balls to spare.

Earlier, skipper Rohit Sharma struck a fine  half-century. In his 45-ball 51-run knock, Rohit struck two sixes and  four boundaries to help his team to a modest total after it  struggled to force the pace for a major part of the innings at  the Barabati Stadium. Sunil Narine bowled a very economical final over,  conceding just four runs besides dismissing Rohit.


Sent into bat, Mumbai Indians lost their openers within  the first five overs, with Morne Morkel and Shakib Al Hasan  accounting for C.M.  Gautam and Lendl Simmons  respectively. Struggling against the pace of Morkel, Gautam charged  down the track but failed to clear  cover where Suryakumar Yadav took the catch.
