MI vs KKR IPL 2023: Who won today’s IPL Match? Check Man of the Match Award Winner

Mumbai Indians have always dominated Kolkata Knight Riders in the head-to-head battle and on expected lines, Mumbai once again tamed Kolkata in IPL history. Suryakumar Yadav was the man in-charge for MI today after Rohit decided to take a rest suffering from stomach bug. However, he came out to bat in the second innings as ‘Impact Player.’

Surya won the toss and opted to bowl first. The decision proved right for Surya and MI as KKR lost their openers quickly. However, Venkatesh Iyer was in a different mood today and he made sure his team gets to a good total in the allotted 20 overs. In the process, Iyer scored a scintillating century becoming only the second KKR player after the legendary Brendon McCullum to score a ton in Purple and Gold. His breathtaking effort with the bat helped him grab the Man of the Match award.
