Defending champions Mumbai Indians paid the price for their indifferent show, crashing out of the Champions League T20 as a committed Northern Knights from New Zealand overpowered them with a one-sided six-wicket victory in the final qualifying round match, on Tuesday.

Scott Styris is named the MAN OF THE MATCH.

Lahore will go through to Group A, where they're tagged along with Kolkata, Chennai, Dolphins and Perth while Northern Knights join Group B where they await Barbados, Cape Cobras, Hobart and Mohali. Two teams from a group of 5 will go through to the semifinals so a lot of action awaits us.

Kane Williamson then produced a world-class innings. No power, no hard-hitting, just pure timing and orthodox shots and yet, he managed to be over a strike-rate of over 150 quite consistently.

Their bowlers did the damage by demolishing the Mumbai top-order. Even though Malinga, here added some handy runs in the death, the total was an average one.
