IPL 2021: Sunrisers Hyderabad is going to face Mumbai Indians in the last league round match of Indian Premier League Season 14. The defeat of Rajasthan Royals before this match has become a headache for Mumbai Indians. Even if Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in the match to be played today, it is not possible to reach the playoffs.
In fact, in the match played on Thursday night, KKR defeated Rajasthan Royals by 83 runs. With this win, KKR have 14 points. Mumbai Indians can also have 14 points after beating Hyderabad, but KKR is far ahead in terms of net run rate.
At present, the net run rate of KKR is +0.587. At the same time, the net run rate of Mumbai Indians is -0.048 only. If Mumbai Indians want to beat KKR in terms of net run rate, then they will have to beat Hyderabad by 171 runs today. If Hyderabad decides to bat first after winning the toss, then the chances of Mumbai Indians reaching the playoffs will be over before the start of the match.
Will have to register the biggest win of IPL
This means that to reach the playoffs, Mumbai Indians will have to register the biggest win in the history of IPL. By the way, the record of the biggest win in IPL is also in the name of Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians beat RCB by 146 runs.
Looking at the current form of Mumbai Indians, it is not possible that the team can beat Hyderabad by such a huge margin. For Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma, the match against Hyderabad is going to prove to be very difficult.
