Chasing a challenging target of 188 in the T20 match, Jos Buttler made the chase look easier, smashing his way to 41 off mere 22 balls and helped Mumbai Indians chase down the target with five balls to spare at the Eden Gardens.

Having stayed till the end, Sharma got his runs off just 54 balls, hitting 10 fours and two sixes in the process.
    
At a venue where he has scored centuries in the all three formats beside his epic ODI world record 264, Sharma did not put a wrong foot and looked in imperious form since kick-starting with a third ball six against Andre Russell.
     
Gambhir struggled to contain Sharma as he dissected the field with ease while the likes of Buttler (3x4, 3x6) and Mitchell McClenaghan (20 from eight balls; 3x6) put on useful partnerships. There was a time when Mumbai Indians were in a spot with 101 required from 59 balls as KKR kept on attacking with their spin strategy.
