IPL 2021 Playoff Qualification Scenario: Mumbai Indians

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 hopes will end immediately.
