Batting first Hyderabad made 113 which Mumbai knocked off inside 15 overs and for the loss of just one wicket.

After starting the season with four consecutive losses, Mumbai ended in second place on the ladder and will face the top-of-the-table Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday for a place in the final.

In the elimination finals clash, Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Rajasthan Royals - who finished third and fourth respectively - play in Pune on Wednesday.
