So, that is it from me, Karthik Raj and my co-commentator, Shashwat Kumar. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda's coverage of the IPL play-offs
Shahbaz Nadeem has been named as the 'Man of the Match' for his superb bowling spell.
David Warner : It feels good now after that dreadful loss against KXIP. They rested a few players but it hold them to 150 on this ground was great. A lot of credit goes to the bowlers, Nadeem was superb. We were trying to be as clinical with the bat then, and it feels good. We try and put our best foot forward, and that stems from the franchise owners. They are great people and it is like a family. We have a never say die attitude and that is how we approach each game. We had a couple of injuries but they are here in spirit and we are doing it for them. Kane missed out due to injury last year and Jonny took his place, and was absolutely fantastic. But that happens in franchise cricket, we can play only four overseas players.
Comments from the players

Rohit Sharma: Not the day we want to remember, probably our worst performance of the season. We wanted to try a few things, it didn't go our way. We knew dew was going to play a factor and we wanted to take the toss out of consideration, but we didn't play good cricket today. I was happy to be back, it's been a while. I'm looking forward to play few more games here, let's see what happens. It (hamstring) is fine, absolutely. We play at Wankhede where there's dew in the second innings. You have to back your skills, and believe that you can get people out. They played good shots in the powerplay, and that helped them. If you take wickets in the Powerplay, even if there is dew, it can put pressure on the opposition. It's a very funny format. It's always nice to forget was has happened, and focus on the present. They (Delhi) are a good side, so it will be a good challenge to face them. You want to leave this performance behind as quickly as possible. We'll get back to the drawing board and figure things out.
What a professional run-chase from SRH!! They wrap up a dominating 10-wicket victory with 17 balls to spare. The duo of David Warner and Wriddhiman Saha were positive right from the beginning. Saha, in particular, took the initiative to attack the pacers as SRH managed to make 56 runs off the Powerplay. Even after the first six overs, Saha and Warner continued to attack the spinners with a variety of shots including scoops and paddles. 

After reaching his half-century, David Warner took the role of an aggressor while Saha opted to play second fiddle. The Mumbai Indians bowling attack didn't look threatening in the absence of Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah. Even in their presence, MI might have struggled to defend target as low as 150 despite the slow nature of the attack. With this victory, SRH qualify for the play-offs as the fourth-placed team. They will face Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator while Mumbai Indians were already confirmed to play Delhi Capitals in the first Qualifier on Friday.
