Kallis, Narine star in Kolkata Knight Riders' 41-run win over Mumbai Indians
The seventh Indian Premier League kicked with an emphatic 41-run win for Kolkata Knight Riders over Mumbai Indians, as the evergreen Jacques Kallis set the tone with a 46-ball 72 before Sunil Narine completed the task with four wickets.
Opting to bat, KKR rode on Kallis and Manish Pandey's 64 to post a competitive 163 for five, before restricting Mumbai Indians to 122 for seven at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, with Narine returning match-winning figures of 4/20.
KKR's innings was built on a 131-run second-wicket partnership between Kallis and Pandey.
