Explained: How Mumbai Indians Can Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs. Mumbai Indians would have been delighted by CSK’s win against SRH as it will certainly help their chances of making the playoffs of IPL 2021. The Rohit Sharma-led side is currently fifth in the points table and they will be hoping that Kolkata Knight Riders lose to the Punjab Kings tonight which will be ideal for them.
Mumbai Indians have won five of their 11 games and are looking back on track for an excellent finish in the remaining games. Hardik Pandya’s form was a huge concern but he seemed to have found his rhythm in the previous game. Mumbai Indians do not have many problems with their world-class bowling attack and here is how Mumbai Indians can qualify for IPL 2021 playoffs.
How Mumbai Indians Can Still Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs:
Mumbai Indians with their win against PBKS are still effectively in the race for the playoff, and winning all their remaining games will be their primary task. They have three games in hand against the DC, SRH, and the RR and even if they lose one out of these games, they have to make sure they win the other two games very comprehensively and by a big margin.
Mumbai Indian’s net run rate is the third-lowest in the season and only SRH and RR are behind them. They will be hoping that KKR loses at least two of their remaining games which will make it a little easier for the Mumbai side. The Rohit Sharma-led side will face a stiff challenge from the Delhi Capitals side who have looked prolific so far.
It could come down to the slightest of margins in the end, and MI has scraped through into the playoffs in the past. The defending champions are unstoppable when they start to peak around and their next assignment will be up against the Delhi Capitals side tomorrow evening.
