Manish Pandey's efforts went in vain after Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya stood strong and helped Mumbai Indians cross the line after 3 erroneous umpiring decisions. The Twitterati did not spare the umpires as their horrendous mistakes almost cost Mumbai Indians their first victory of the season.
Nitish Rana and Mumbai Indians snatched victory from the jaws of defeat as the home side won their first game of the 2017 IPL by 4 wickets. Rana scored 50 runs off 29 balls and Hardik Pandya’s quickfire 29* helped Mumbai score an astonishing 60 runs in four overs to chase down KKR’s 178.

Looked like this was the only way to get free Jio data! :P
Can't believe that KKR threw away this match just for 1 month of free Jio data. #MIvKKR— Rofl Gandhi (@RoflGandhi_) April 9, 2017
India or West Indies? Who will win?
WI hold a 60-53 H2H advantage over IND historically but in last 10 completed games between them , IND have won 7. IND has also won all last 5 games at this venue.
