MI snatch game from KKR to enter into finals

Three pretty one-sided playoffs, so we expect a lot from the FINALS.
First of all, hats off to Mumbai Indians who played a dominating game from the beginning. Though they lost 3 early wickets but they came back strongly.
They set the game on fire with the ball. The selection of Karn over Bhajji was a gamechanger.
KKR had a really bad start and could not cover that up since the end.
Knight Riders, reduced to 31 for 5 after being asked to bat, were lifted by a 56-run sixth-wicket stand between Ishank Jaggi and Suryakumar Yadav.
Krunal Pandya’s unbeaten 45 drove home the good work done by Karn Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah as Mumbai Indians cruised into their fourth IPL final.
Mumbai lost three wickets inside their Powerplay, before Krunal Pandya and Rohit Sharma steadied the chase with a 54-run stand. Krunal remained unbeaten on 45 off 30 balls as Mumbai got home with 33 balls remaining.
Karn Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah picked up their best T20 bowling figures on the same day, combining to take 7 for 23 in seven overs to lift Mumbai Indians into their fourth IPL final with a six-wicket win against Kolkata Knight Riders. 
There was no real batting to follow, and Knight Riders only added 19 while losing their four remaining wickets, leaving seven balls unused. Johnson picked up two in the 17th over, Bumrah got his third in the 18th, and Malinga finished off the innings with a trademark dipping slower ball in the 19th.
Mumbai only needed one partnership, and they got that courtesy Krunal and Rohit.
