Right then! We have our four teams in the playoffs. We are done with the league stage and are set for the business end of the competition. Qualifier 1 will see the clash between Delhi and Chennai. It will be played on 10th October at 6 pm Local (2 pm GMT). Make sure you join us for what should be an exciting clash! Goodbye for now.

Ishan Kishan, the Player of the Match, says that it was a good thing for him and the team that he played well and he is happy to be back in form before the World Cup. Tells that he was very positive in the beginning as they were in a do-or-die situation. Adds that he did not hit many boundaries this season and his shot off Umran Malik stood out in this game. States that in this tournament, you have to be prepared for every circumstance and whenever an opportunity arises, they need to make use of it. States that he had a very good chat with Kohli and everyone supported him really well. Says that he would love to open and Kohli has told him that he has been picked as an opener but says that wherever he gets to bat, he wants to perform.

Rohit Sharma, the skipper of Mumbai, says that there is always an expectation from the franchise and they stand out due to what they have done in the past 5-6 years. Adds that he tries to back the players but there are situations when you drop someone. Adds that it has been wonderful to be part of this franchise. Says that they had the momentum when they won back-to-back games back in India but they lost their form after coming here to the UAE but he is very happy to end with a win. Adds that the fans have always supported them whether they play well or not and he hopes that they are happy with what they did in the past 3-4 years. Praises Ishan Kishan on how he batted and says it was wonderful to see him bat like this.

Stay tuned for the presentation ceremony to find out who the Player of the Match is and to hear from the winning skipper.

Suryakumar Yadav is down for a chat, he says that the show must go on and one must keep smiling. Adds that having a clear mindset and having nothing to lose helped them a lot. Says that the T20 WC is coming up and he is keeping the routines and processes the same for that.

Manish Pandey, the Hyderabad skipper, says that it is a very hot day and it was really tough. Goes on to say that he is struggling with his calf. States that this is probably the best surface they were playing on and they knew that Mumbai will come out all guns blazing. Adds that their bowlers gave a few extra runs and that cost them. Tells that they won only three games and they had some changes in the side and that did not work for them. Says that they struggled in India and they played better in this game but they were lacking a complete team effort. Adds that the whole team has to perform at the highest level.

Hyderabad had a mountain to climb and they had a great start at the top as Abhishek Sharma and Jason Roy got them off to a flier. But both the openers fell after getting a start. Abdul Samad and Mohammad Nabi did not make much of an impact and they were in a spot of bother. The required rate was climbing but Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg hit boundaries on a regular basis to make sure that they remain the hunt. Garg fell for 29 and Jason Holder fell on a low score too. But Pandey was fighting it out in the middle and got to his fifty. He kept the team in the hunt but needed support from the other end. That did not happen as wickets kept falling. In the end, they fell short by 42 runs.

Mumbai had a huge total on the board, but if they had to qualify for the playoffs, they would have needed to bowl out Hyderabad for 65 or less. But, that did not happen as Hyderabad got off to a great start. After that, Mumbai started taking wickets and came back in the game. They took wickets at regular intervals and made sure that the required rate was climbing up at a steady rate. All the bowlers except for Krunal Pandya took wickets. James Neesham, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jasprit Bumrah took 2 wickets each while Piyush Chawla and Trent Boult took 1 each. They will be happy with the win but would have been happier if they had qualified for the playoffs. Mumbai did not have a great run in the UAE leg and the fact that NRR cost them a qualification would hurt them more.

We have our teams for the playoffs! The moment Hyderabad crossed the 65-run mark, the Kolkata camp would have celebrated! Mumbai needed a lot of things to go their way in this game to qualify. First, they needed the toss to go their way and it did. Then, they needed to put on a big score on the board and they did that too. But, they needed to skittle out Hyderabad and that did not happen. The defending champions will not be making it to the playoffs this year!

Meanwhile, in the clash between Delhi and Bangalore in Dubai, Srikar Bharat has taken Bangalore home. Needing 6 from 1 ball and then 5 from 1 courtesy a wide from Avesh Khan, Bharat tonked a six to help Bangalore win the game and end the league stages with a win. Wow, considered a Test specialist, he has risen from the shadows and played one of the best knocks in this season of the Indian T20 League.
