Mumbai Indians require a win by massive margin against Sunrisers to pip Kolkata Knight Riders in the top-four race.

IPL 2021 Playoff Qualification Scenario: Chennai Super Kings

The defending champions are currently sixth in the table and require a win to match the fourth-placed Kolkata Knight Riders (14 points in 14 games). However, KKR’s last-night one-sided win of 86 runs over direct rivals Rajasthan Royals has made the path for MI leading to play-offs stiffer. MI, who currently have a run rate of -0.048, requires a landslide win on the evening to pip KKR.

In order to make it to the play-offs, MI must beat SRH by a comprehensive margin of 171 runs. If SRH bats first, then MI qualification is near impossible.

SRH are long out of the qualification race with just three wins (6 points) in 13 games and will play for pride against MI.
