SYDNEY - Michael Hussey has made a disappointing debut for the Mumbai Indians, going out for three as his new side suffered a crushing 41-run loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders in their opening Indian Premier League match.

After winning the toss and opting to bat, Kolkata got off to a poor start, losing a scoreless Gautam Gambhir to be 1-4 in the second over.

However, they quickly bounced back with Jacques Kallis and Manish Pandey putting on a 131-run partnership before Lasith Malinga claimed the second wicket.

Malinga was a bright light for the otherwise lacklustre Mumbai, taking 4-23 off four overs.

Chasing a total of 163, Hussey opened Mumbai's batting along with Aditya Tare but fell to Sunil Narine after notching up just three in 13 balls.
