Kolkata Knight Riders keep their IPL alive thanks to an all-round performance from their biggest match-winner
Questions were asked of the Kolkata Knight Riders and their captain after their six-match losing streak and Karthik answered them on Sunday after beating Mumbai Indians
When the Mumbai Indians allrounder finally fell for 91 off 34, he had struck a six every 3.7 balls.
The Eden Gardens saw two breathtaking innings but the better one actually ended up on the losing side
'We played Rajasthan Royals recently and got defeated by a weak batting line-up ... Against a strong team like Mumbai we're going to need miracles'
Life has thrown him a number of hard knocks, and the allrounder has channeled the frustrations into turning himself into an even more dangerous finisher
It's only the first meeting between the two sides this season, but Knight Riders enter the contest needing nothing less than a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive
