Pandey emerged the top scorer with an unbeaten 71 runs in 47 balls before the Super Over.

With Mohammad Nabi clearing the boundary once off Malinga, Pandey waited till the last two balls of the 19th over to go after Bumrah.

MI have been well-served by South African Quinton de Kock (393 from 12 matches) and captain Rohit Sharma (307 from 11) at the top.

Earlier, Quinton De Kock's unbeaten 69 took the hosts to a respectable total on a hard pitch. He cut short Suryakumar's stay in the middle, reducing Mumbai to 90/2 in 11.2 overs.

The MI innings had four partnerships of note; apart from the opening stand of 36, there were partnerships of 54 (second wicket), 28 (fourth wicket) and 32 (fifth wicket).

WWE Officials Considering Moving Lio Rush Back To NXT
Rush was informed that he was making a mistake, causing him to complain to WWE management, digging the hole deeper. There has been internal talks that Rush may be taken off the main roster, and sent back to NXT .

Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Anmolpreet Singh, Siddhesh Lad, Ankul Roy, Evin Lewis, Pankaj Jaiswal, Ben Cutting, Ishan Kishan, Aditya Tare, Rasikh Salam, Barinder Sran, Jayant Yadav, Beuran Hendricks.

Hardik Pandya (18) was not able to repeat his heroics from the last match against KKR and he was sent back to the pavilion by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the 16th over of the innings. Pandey took the Sunrisers into the Super Over but couldn't quite do the job a second time. But Mohammed Nabi (31 off 20 balls) and Pandey brought the visitors back.

Bumrah would have his revenge on the next ball as he cleaned up Nabi with an accurate yorker. He picked up several singles, and favoured the leg-side to score his runs; he brought up his half-century in 48 balls - and added 17 off the following ten deliveries to finish unbeaten on 69.

Despite getting little support from the other end, de Kock kept his cool and helped the three-time champions reach a respectable total. And then, when Sunrisers needed six off the last ball to force the match into a Super Over, he duly deposited a length delivery from Hardik Pandya into the stands at long-on.

Nabi's six off the third ball brought the target down to to eight off three but the Afghanistan all-rounder was dismissed off the next. The two teams will clash against each other at Mumbai's home ground at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Skipper Kane Williamson was the next to get out, falling to spinner Krunal Pandya.

The two spinners in the Mumbai Indians' bowling attack were impressive too; Krunal Pandya returned figures of 2 for 22, while Rahul Chahar only conceded 21 runs in his four overs.

Super over score: Mumbai Indians 9/0 defeat Sunrisers Hyderabad 8/2.

Jasprit Bumrah, for his two wickets in the main match and the one wicket in the Super Over.
