The reason is given in this article on ESPNCricinfo: In the calculation of net run rate (NRR), the final score, and not the target, is the relevant number.

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.

Then the Net run rate will be like below, MI = 0.0135 (2175/271.2 - 2170/273.3) RR = 0.0121 (...
