The fight is now for the fourth playoff spot as Mumbai Indians would look to give their all in their final two league games of IPL 2021.
Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai will be up against a resurgent Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday, who would be confident after their win against Chennai Super Kings.
How do both teams stand a chance of making it to the playoff stage? They have to win their last two matches and also win them big. Rajasthan’s run-rate is -0.337 and run-rate of Mumbai is -0.453.
Then there is Kolkata Knight Riders in contention with 14 points and the team that loses on Tuesday will be out of the playoff race. With Kolkata still in the equation, if Mumbai manages to win both of its last games, there is no guarantee they will advance. Kolkata still has a match to play against Rajasthan.
The batting for Mumbai has been a big let down, so they would want their big guns such as Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Kieron Pollard and Suryakumar Yadav to fire.
