If Faulkner bowled a no-ball, six runs would not be calculated. The final score will be 190, not 195.
But still, Mumbai could qualify for the play-off matches. Since they need 190 in 14.3 overs, if 14.4 was a no-ball, then it won't be counted as a legal delivery.
Then the Net run rate will be like below,
MI = 0.0135 (2175/271.2 - 2170/273.3)
RR = 0.0121 (2155/269.5 - 2159/272.5)
Mumabi Indians would lead RR in the Points table by just 0.0014 difference in NRR.
