Mumbai seal playoffs spot after Super Over thriller

Mumbai Indians survived a 71-run blitz from Manish Pandey to clinch victory in a Super Over finish against Sunrisers Hyderabad and qualify for the IPL 2019 playoffs.

The match ended in a tie after Hyderabad, chasing 163 for victory, finished their 20 overs on 162 for six.

Quinton de Kock stood out for Mumbai with his 69* to guide the three-time champions to 162-5 after electing to bat first in the 51st game of the season.

Jasprit Bumrah was adjudged the man of the match for his figures of 2-31 and later giving away just eight runs in the Super Over.

Hyderabad could not play out their six deliveries in the one-over eliminator after losing two wickets in four balls.

"We are rewarded for some real hard work we have put in throughout the tournament. We played consistent cricket and have the results for it," Rohit Sharma said after the thrilling win.

"Bumrah has been brilliant for us. He keeps improving and he is hungry for more.

"Quinny (Quinton) has been really good for us but we need help from the other batters," Sharma said of de Kock who has amassed 462 runs in 13 games.

Hardik Pandya came in to bat alongside Kieron Pollard for Mumbai in the Super Over and hit leg-spinner Rashid Khan for a six on the first ball.

He then took a single and Pollard completed the win on the third delivery as Mumbai joined table-toppers Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals for the playoffs.

"A fantastic effort to get so close from Manish and the lower order. It was a pretty good first half but we couldn't get over the line," said Williamson.

"Rashid is world class and we thought he was our man. When it gets down to the last ball, it's a shame. But there is a game left."

Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab are all in the race for the one remaining playoff spot.
