AFP, Mumbai :
Mumbai Indians Thursday survived a 71-run blitz from Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman Manish Pandey to clinch victory in a Super Over finish and qualify for the Indian Premier League play-offs.
The match had ended in a tie after Hyderabad, chasing 163 for victory, finished their 20 overs on 162 for six, 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 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.
"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," Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma said after the thrilling win.
"Bumrah has been brilliant for us. He keeps improving and he is hungry for more.
