Mumbai Indians IPL 2021 playoffs qualification scenarios
Mumbai and Delhi would be pleased with Kolkata Knight Riders’ loss against Punjab Kings yesterday. Mumbai can now qualify without relying on other teams; all it has to do now is win its final three games. Sixteen points will secure them a playoff berth, since the Knight Riders can only attain 14 points now.
However, If Mumbai loses to the Capitals, things could get tricky for them, since both the Kolkata and the Punjab have better net run rates, and all three teams are now on 10 points. Mumbai may lose out if qualification is determined only on the basis of net run rate.
