The Mumbai Indians will closely monitor the SunRisers Hyderabad versus Lucknow Super Giants match as their survival in the league hangs in the balance. With only eight points from 12 games, their chances of staying in contention are slim. The five-time champions could face elimination from the IPL playoff race as soon as Wednesday. If the SunRisers Hyderabad defeat Lucknow Super Giants, Mumbai Indians will be eliminated from the competition.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals have amassed 16 points each so far. If SunRisers Hyderabad defeat Lucknow Super Giants, Kolkata Knight Riders will move up to 14 points. Consequently, the Mumbai Indians, led by Pat Cummins, will be unable to surpass any of these three teams, as they currently only have 8 points after completing 12 games. With two matches remaining, the best outcome they could achieve is a total of 12 points.

In the meantime, the Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants, each holding 12 points, will compete against each other in the 64th match of IPL 2024. This scenario implies that one of these teams will surpass the 12-point mark, further exceeding the maximum points the Mumbai Indians could potentially achieve.

Hardik isn’t getting carried away regarding MI’s playoffs chances. He mentioned in the post-match presentation that while he’s not certain about the specific mathematical scenarios, the team’s primary focus remains on playing good cricket.

Our batters performed excellently, which was great to see. As for my bowling, I aim to hit the right areas and adjust based on the situation. Today, I focused on bowling accurately, particularly considering the shorter side of the ground. It’s crucial for bowlers like Chawla to be precise as the margin for error has decreased in modern cricket.
