Pollard conceded a four on the first ball of the over and gave away three singles on the next three deliveries. Meanwhile, when he was going to bowl the 5th delivery of the over to the left-handed batsman Nitish Rana the ball slipped out of his hand in the bowling stride and it hit the umpire, Chris Gaffaney, as Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard reached the bowling crease.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to field first and they made one forced change to the playing XI as Ramandeep Singh replaced Suryakumar Yadav, who has been injured and ruled out of the entire tournament.

On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders once again made plenty of changes to the playing XI as Varun Chakravarthy, Venkatesh Iyer, Pat Cummins, Sheldon Jackson and Ajinkya Rahane replaced Shivam Mavi, Anukul Roy, Aaron Finch, Baba Indrajith and Harshit Rana in the playing XI.

Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane opened the innings for the Knight Riders and all-rounder Daniel Sams opened the attack for Mumbai Indians and he gave away just 4 runs in the first over.
