With that win, Mumbai Indians became the third team to qualify into the play-offs after Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals.

Manish Pandey smashed his third half-century in four matches and remained unbeaten on 71 off 47 deliveries to single-handedly take Sunrisers to the Super Over. With 17 needed from 6 balls, Manish Pandey and Mohammed Nabi together scored 16 which was bowled by Hardik.
