Mumbai Indians survived a 71-run blitz from Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman Manish Pandey to clinch victory in a Super Over finish on Thursday and qualify for the Indian Premier League playoffs.
The match had ended in a tie after Hyderabad, chasing 163 for victory, finished their 20 overs on 162/6, with Pandey unbeaten in his 47-ball knock at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
South Africa’s Quinton de Kock stood out for Mumbai with his 69 not out to guide the three-time champions to 162/5 after electing to bat first in the Twenty20 tournament.
Paceman Jasprit Bumrah then returned figures of 2/31 from his four overs, and also restricted Hyderabad to just eight runs in the Super Over. He was named as the Man of the Match.
The Kane Williamson-led Hyderabad could not play out their six deliveries in the one-over eliminator after losing two wickets in four balls.
