IPL 2019: Here Is How Mumbai Indians vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Game Affect Playoff Qualification Scenarios
Well, the tournament came to the business end, which means that every game result will make different permutations and combinations for the other teams. Meanwhile, we figured out the qualification scenarios, which would pan out after the conclusion of tonight game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Currently, Mumbai Indians are with 14 points while Sunrisers Hyderabad is with 12 points. As far as the Net-Run-Rate is concerned, Mumbai got +0.347 while Hyderabad got +0.709.
If Mumbai Indians win or lose tonight:
A win tonight will help Mumbai Indians take the second place in the points table. Even though they level the points of Delhi, the superior run rate will help them take a second spot. After that, they need to depend on the final round results to finish on the second spot.
In the other case, if they lose the game against SRH tonight, then they need to win the game against KKR at any cost and hope DC lose their final game to seal the second spot in the points table. They should also hope SRH lose to RCB, as Hyderabad got a better run-rate.
Mumbai might even lose playoff spot:
If Mumbai loses a remaining couple of game, they might even be dropped out of the playoffs as well. Kolkata Knight Riders got the better run rate. If KKR wins their remaining games when Mumbai loses, we may say Rohit Sharma-led side out of the tournament.
Sunrisers Hyderabad can seal the playoff spot:
A win will most probably ensure a playoff spot for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Even if they get 14 points in their kitty, the better run-rate will help them push for a place in the next level. They can even end up in the top 2 if they beat RCB in their final clash and DC lose their final game.
Even if SRH lose their game against Mumbai, they can make into the playoffs if they win the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore without the further results. Meanwhile, if SRH beat Mumbai tonight, Rajasthan Royals will be out of the tournament.
