Despite late setbacks, KKR managed to put up a competitive total on the board, thanks to crucial contributions from Andre Russell (24) and Rinku Singh (20).

The foundation was there but we could not capitalize after that: Hardik

After the game, Pandya acknowledged the challenge faced by MI, emphasising the need to capitalise on the batting foundation. He deemed the total par given the conditions and praised the bowlers for their efforts despite the dew. Looking forward, he emphasized enjoying the game and striving for better performances in upcoming matches.

"Tough one, yeah. As a batting unit, the foundation was there but we could not capitalize after that and keep the momentum up. The wicket was a little up and down and a little tacky so momentum was very important. I think it was a par score, given the conditions, felt that the bowlers did well. Every ball that came back from the boundary came back wet. The bowlers made sure they kept taking wickets. (On his thoughts for the next game) Nothing, just to go and enjoy as much as we can and play good cricket, that’s been my motto from the start. I don’t think we’ve played enough good cricket this season," he said after the match.
