IPL 2021: Can Mumbai Indians Reach IPL Playoffs? Check SRH vs MI Match Preview

At the 55th match of IPL 2021, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians will lock horns with each other. Today’s match is the 2nd last group stage match, and Sunrisers Hyderabad is already eliminated from qualifying for the IPL 2021 playoffs. However, Mumbai Indians is still in the league of qualifying for the IPL 2021 playoffs. In fact, only Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders are 2 contenders fighting for the 4th spot in the playoffs. Meanwhile, after Kolkata Knight Riders massive win against Rajasthan Royals, yesterday have increased their chances of grabbing the 4th spot, it is unclear if winning today’s match will guarantee the 4th spot for Mumbai Indians. 

Match Preview

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

With just 3 wins out of the 13 matches they have played so far, Sunrisers Hyderabad has had a disappointing year in the Indian Premier League. Probably, this was not the year for the orange army that is placed at the last spot in the IPL 2021 points chart. In the previous encounter with the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated the RCB side by 4 runs, but it could not change the game for RCB, who has already been qualified for the playoffs. Since SRH is already out of the race to qualify for the IPL 2021 playoffs, at this point, winning today’s game will just mean ending the IPL 2021 journey with a win. 

Mumbai Indians

The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians did not show impressive performance in this year of IPL. By winning 6 matches out of 13 games, Mumbai Indians is standing at 6th place in the points chart with a net run rate of -0.048 and 12 points. Only Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders are waiting to grab the 4th spot in the playoffs. Mumbai Indians last played Rajasthan Royals, where they defeated the latter by 8 wickets. However, after KKR’s recent win, Mumbai Indians’ chances to make it to the IPL 2021 playoffs look grim, even if it manages to win today’s match.
