Mumbai Indians sealed their place in the Play-offs with a Super Over win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. Says MI skipper Rohit Sharma, 'It's a good positive for us to qualify with one game to spare. In 2017, when we won the trophy, we qualified with two games in hand. As a team what we have done well is that we have handled the pressure situations well'. 'We don't believe in individuals to win the game on their own. We want everyone to chip in and take us over the line,' he elaborated.
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. 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. In the one-over eliminator, Sunrisers Hyderabad managed 8/2 with Jasprit Bumrah bagging the wickets of Manish Pandey and Mohammed Nabi.
