It was a fantastic effort by Manish and Nabi to get us so close. The first half was very good for us as our bowlers did a brilliant job. We just couldn’t get over the line,” Williamson said in the post-match presentation.”It is a shame for us that we ended up on the wrong side today,” he added.With this win at the Wankhede, the @mipaltan have now qualified for the #VIVOIPL Playoffs pic.twitter.com/2KruVjPKMtIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 2, 2019With only nine runs to defend in the Super Over, SRH opted for Rashid Khan in place of in-form bowler, Khaleel Ahmed who finished with 3 for 42 in the match.”We were waiting to see how many runs we will be able to get in the Super Over. When it was eight, we decided to go with Rashid. He is world-class in everything he does so we thought he is our man,” the SRK skipper said.advertisementSRH, who have 12 points from 13 games, are still not out of the tournament as they can still bag the remaining playoff berth if they win their final match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to be played on Saturday.”We have one game left and it is important that we approach that in a similar way,” the Kiwi said.Also Read | Feels good: Rohit Sharma elated as Mumbai Indians seal IPL 2019 playoffs berthAlso Read | IPL 2019: Mumbai Indians overcome SRH in Super Over to reach playoffsAlso Read | IPL 2019 Playoff Scenarios: 4 teams in race for the final berthFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
