IPL 2021: The performance of five-time champions Mumbai Indians in the 14th season of the Indian Premier League has been very disappointing. Mumbai Indians are ranked seventh in the points table and their chances of making it to the playoffs are slim. Mumbai Indians bowling coach Shane Bond, however, has claimed that his team remains in the tournament.
After reaching the UAE, the losing streak of Mumbai Indians continued on Saturday as well. In the match played against Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians could only manage 129 runs for eight wickets in 20 overs. Delhi team won the match by four wickets with five balls to spare.
Bond, however, admitted that Mumbai Indians’ performance has not been up to expectations. Bond said, “We are playing well. We know we are nowhere near our best game but we are in the race for the playoffs.
Competition between four teams
Mumbai Indians, however, need to win both their remaining matches to stay in the race for the playoffs. The bowling coach said, “We will have to wait. We have registered less wins so far but if we win the next two matches and some results are in our favor then we will go ahead.
Let us tell you that the team of Mumbai Indians is currently on the seventh position in the table with 10 points in 12 matches. Mumbai Indians compete with KKR, Rajasthan and Punjab Kings for a place in the playoffs. These three teams also have 10-10 points and they also have two matches left.
