23: 35: Pat Cummins - Player of the Match

I probably think I'm most surprised by that innings. I'm glad that it came off. Very satisfying to do it on my first game this season. 

23:34 PM IST: Captains Speak

Shreyas Iyer (KKR): Extraordinary! I couldn't believe the way he (Cummins) was hitting the ball. The plan was for Venky to drop anchor and tell Pat to just swing at everything because that's what he was doing before too. We have to take responsibility as top-order batters.

Rohit Sharma (MI): Never expected him to come and play like that (on Cummins). The pitch got better and better to bat as the game went on. With the bat, we did not start well. We did not bowl according to the plan. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us. I don't want to be in this position all the time.

Kolkata Knight Riders will be boosted by the return of Australian Test captain Pat Cummins.
