Nile and other KKR bowlers, particularly Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav, restricted Hyderabad to 128-7 in their 20 overs on a seemingly slow track.
Mumbai made one change to the XI that lost the first Qualifier to Rising Pune Supergiant on Tuesday, with Mitchell Johnson replacing fellow left-arm quick Mitchell McClenaghan, who is out injured. Karn Sharma, even in his wildest imagination, would not have dreamt of ending with figures of 4-0-16-4 even had the pitch been a minefield, which it wasn't by any yardstick. Ishank scored 28 and Suryakumar scored 31. This was an important game for the team as we had to qualify for the final, so I just tried to get wickets for my team and bowl them out quickly.
Karn Sharma then dismissed Colin de Grandhomme off the very next delivery, trapping him in front of the wicket for a duck with a faster one. The game was finished by captain Rohit Sharma (26) and Krunal Pandya (45 not out) who together put on 54 runs to take Mumbai to their fourth IPL final.

The next day Noriega was transferred to Miami for prosecution that would be sentenced to 40 years in prison for drug trafficking. Ezra Angel, Noriega's lawyer, said the former strongman's three daughters would not issue any public statements.
Jaggi and Suryakumar provided a glimmer of hope for their team, but another collapse was triggered when the former holed out to long-on off Karn in the 15th over. "We bowled well in the first six overs and carried the momentum with us", said Karn. MI struggled early, losing 3 for 34 in 5.4 overs, Piyush Chawla picking up two wickets.
Mumbai struck for the second time in the fifth over, removing Narine for 10, thanks to a superb googly by Sharma and wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel did the rest at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
KKR will have a upper hand in the match as their team consist of players which can turn the game as well as they are confident with a win in previous game. "That's been the hallmark of this team, we're not dependent on one individual", Rohit said at the post-match press conference.
"Today was a ideal example as we played a great game". We've played really good cricket through the tournament.
