Scorecard
Well, that will be that then. The five-time champions have bowed out of the tournament. No playoffs for the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad this year. Instead, CSK have returned back to their usual playoff spot, along with KKR, RCB and DC. Two teams that have already won the title, while two still wait for the IPL title has been eluding them. That's the scenario for now. Join us on Sunday, as we gear up for Qualifier 1 between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings. That's all we have for tonight. This is Pratyush Rohra, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator, Bala. Goodnight and take care. That's all folks!
Ishan Kishan (Player of the Match): A very good thing for me as well as for the team. Getting in good touch before the World Cup. A good state of mind is very important. I knew we are in a do-or-die situation was I was positive from the beginning. We knew we have to get to around 15-160. It was just the intent and the positive mindset and taking it one ball at a time, at the same time. I haven't scored as many boundaries in the cover region this season. The one I smacked off Malik would be my favourite shot today. In this tournament, you have to be prepared for every circumstance. There will be some innings where you won't score runs but it's important to be in that mindset. When you have an opportunity, you can't let it go and have to approach it with your best form. I had very good a chat with Virat bhai, Jasprit bhai, even HP [Hardik Pandya], KP [Pollard] were there for me - telling me this is the learning stage for me. I would love to open, and that is what Virat bhai said. But at the bigger level, you need to be prepared for everything situation. 
Rohit Sharma: When you play for a franchise like Mumbai, you are always expected to go out and perform. Especially with what we've achieved in the past. I wouldn't call it pressure as such. More than anything, it is the expectation. What we have created as a group stands out in the last 5-6 years and that to me is very important. It was very tough to drop some players. I'm someone who wants to back the players as much as I can and try to keep the same squad because that is important. These are the guys that did the job for us in the previous two years. But we had an on-and-off season. I don't want to take anything away. We had a fabulous run as a franchise. It was wonderful to be a part of this solid setup. We can be very proud of what we have created as a team. We were just getting into the momentum of winning games in Delhi, and then there was a break in between which wasn't ideal for us. Once we came here, there was a collective failure as a group. But very happy with the win today. We wanted to end on a high. We gave everything, and I am sure it was entertaining for the fans too. The MI fans have been our 12th men. They've always been supportive and always stood by us as a whole. A little disappointed that we couldn't go through to the playoffs but I'm sure they will be happy with what they've achieved in the playoffs. Ishan Kishan is a very talented player, just the right position to bat is crucial. These are the kind of situations he likes and wants to be in. He just batted the way we've known all this while.
Suryakumar Yadav: Hitting boundaries was the need of the hour. The show must go on, you have to keep smiling. We had nothing to lose, and had a target in our mind. So we kept running behind it but the wicket was so good in the end. Just happy to be on the winning side. World Cup is a big tournament. Nothing changes though. All processes and routines remain the same, so really looking forward to it
Manish Pandey: Lot of work in the fielding. Intense 20 overs in the field for us. Obviously batted a few extra overs today. Best surface of this tournament so far that we have played on. Mumbai came all guns blazing. We knew they would come. We could have bowled a little bit better to be honest. Fast bowlers gave away some easy runs that probably cost us. We won only three games (in the season). Lots of changes, didn't really work for us. Struggled a bit at the start of the tournament, even in Chennai. Here we tried to do better but could not. We were lacking the team effort, only individual performances here and there. The whole team has to perform if you are to do well in a season.
Mumbai Indians won by 42 runs.

The miracle looked well and truly on for the Mumbai Indians when Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav were going all guns blazing. It was a welcome return to form for the two Indians who will represent their national side in the upcoming T20 World Cup. Absolute blinders from both batters to get their side to 235, which could have been 260 at one stage to be honest. However, bundling up SRH under 65 was always going to be a mountainous task, especially on this surface. One of the best surfaces we've had in this leg, surely. A tough day for the bowlers tonight and it was a day that belonged to the batters. The ultimate winner of this contest was Kolkata Knight Riders. Courtesy of a superior net run rate, they've managed to scrape through after a magnificent performance in this second leg. The SRH openers ensured there were no jitters. They got to 65-run mark in the powerplays and extinguished all hopes for Mumbai Indians. 
Right then. That will be that. Pandey's gone down with some cramps. He was struggling with the heat for a long time. There was only one winner in this contest tonight but the two points won't be as sweet as MI would like. No playoffs for them as the defending champions bow out of the tournament with a dominant win.

19.6 Trent Boult to Manish Pandey, slower ball into the surface. Pandey pulls it away to deep square leg. He limps through for a single. Seems like he is cramping. But that's the game! SRH fall well short of the target!
19.5 Trent Boult to Manish Pandey, FOUR! Slower ball full outside the off-stump. Pandey goes across and deep in the crease to get underneath. Hammers it straight back past the bowler and finds another boundary
19.4 Trent Boult to Siddarth Kaul, full ball outside the off-stump. Kaul drills it through the covers for a single. That's a proper shot from the pacer
19.3 Trent Boult to Manish Pandey, slower ball on a length around the off-stump. Goes for the slog but gets it off the inside half of the bat to deep mid-wicket. Finally takes the single
19.2 Trent Boult to Manish Pandey, FOUR! No need to run this time! Full and straight at the base of the stumps. Drills it straight back past the bowler and finds the long-on boundary
19.1 Trent Boult to Manish Pandey, slower ball full and wide of the off-stump. Drives it down to long-off. Once again doesn't go through for a single
A matter of completing the formalities then. 54 runs needed off the final over. Trent Boult will finish things off.

18.6 Nathan Coulter-Nile to Siddarth Kaul, short of a length delivery outside the off-stump. Steers it down to thirdman. Manish Pandey denies a single
18.5 Nathan Coulter-Nile to Siddarth Kaul, slower ball on a length outside the off-stump. Kaul fends at it and gets beaten
Siddarth Kaul, right-hand bat, comes to the crease
That's a stinger for NCN. One of those that's going to be very sore in the morning. He was calm enough to hold onto the catch though.
