Mumbai Indians prevailed over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Super Over to qualify for the IPL playoffs here Thursday, the win propelling them to the second position in the pecking order.
Opting to bat, Mumbai Indians scored 162 for five in the allotted 20 overs, and then, saw SRH end their innings at the same score.
Quinton De Kock's unbeaten 69 took the hosts to a respectable total on a difficult pitch. For the visitors, the chase began with Wriddiman Saha (25 off 15 balls) and Martin Guptill (15 off 11) adding 40 for the first wicket. But Saha was sent back by Bumrah.
The Sunrisers, led by pacer Khaleel Ahmed (3-42), pegged Mumbai back after Rohit Sharma decided to bat. He was ably supported by the Afghan spin duo of Rashid Khan (0-21), Mohammed Nabi (1-24) and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar (1-29), while Basil Thampi (0-40) had an off day.
Chasing 163, Hyderabad needed 41 runs from 18 balls, but Malinga (0-37) conceded 12 runs as the equation was brought down to 29 runs off 12 balls.
Hyderabad needed 17 runs off the last over and the equation was brought down to seven by the time Hardik braced up to bowl the final delivery. But Manish Pandey (71 not out off 47 balls) carted the all-rounder over long-on for a six to bring the scores level and force a Super Over, a first at the Wankhede Stadium.
Needing nine to win in the Super Over, Hardik Pandya hammered Rashid Khan for a six over long off in the first ball and then Kieron Pollard took the side home with three balls to spare.
