While Rohit Sharma (26 runs from 24 balls) and Krunal Pandya (45* runs from 30 balls) successfully put on a 54-run partnership to complete the chase, the Mumbai Indians captain credited the all-around teamwork for the win.

The result sets up tomorrow's final between Mumbai and Rising Pune Supergiant at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

The Mumbai captain praised the bowlers, especially, Karn Sharma, who bowled brilliantly and picked up 4/16 from his four overs.

"That's been the hallmark of this team, we're not dependent on one individual".

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.

Indian leg-spinner Karn Sharma claimed four wickets to lead MI to finals.

Mumbai Indians continued their dominance over Kolkata Knight Riders in the second qualifier of IPL 2017 as they registered a comfortable 6 wicket victory to storm into the final.

Since the Central notification was issued, the CPM has held over 300 "beef festivals" across Kerala, where cooked beef was freely served.

Bumrah and Lasith Malinga got the last two batsmen cheaply. It's not me, something we have been talking about.

"We are hungry and want to do well against Mumbai. Shows a team effort", Rohit said.

T-20 fans have never had it so good, may the best team win! The batting order looks very strong with Rohit Sharma, Pollard, Nitish Rana, Parthiv Patel. He tweeted saying, "One of the top sides in the @ipl @kkr can hold their heads high @mipaltan clinical performance hopefully a cracker of a final coming soon".

"Obviously you feel good when you are picking wickets in the middle, but Mumbai Indians winning is most important".

Earlier, Sunrisers' batsmen struggled to score freely against both seamers and spinners after losing the toss and being put into bat by Gambhir. But obviously we lost a lot of wickets upfront and once you lose five wickets for 30-odd it's very hard to recover.

Australian fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile (3-20) had Williamson caught at extra cover and later took a splendid diving catch off his follow-through to dismiss Chris Jordan (0), who was playing his first game in the IPL.
