Ways By Which MI Can Get Knocked Out Of IPL 2019

Mumbai Indians faced a brutal hitting from Andre Russell (40-ball 80) on Sunday. Based on Russell’s knock, KKR posted 232 runs from 20 overs. MI were down at 58/4 in the 9th over of the chase.

Then came Hardik Pandya and smashed 91 runs off just 34 balls. This helped MI to reach 198/7 but they still lost by 34 runs. If not for Pandya’s knock, MI’s situation could have been worse. Their net run-rate could’ve gone haywire.

They are currently on 14 points and need just one win from their last two games to go through. However funnier things have happened in the past. If MI lose both their games and some of the other results go against them, they can get knocked out of the tournament.

If MI loses both their remaining games

MI will face SRH and KKR in the final league stage. Although both these games will be played in their home ground Wankhede, they can be in trouble if SRH and KKR manage to defeat them.

They will be on 14 points and might still go through based on NRR. However if they lose the games by huge margins, then they might be in trouble. If SRH win all their games, they will finish on 16 points and will easily qualify.

If KXIP or KKR win their two remaining games, they will finish on 14 points and NRR will come to play. On the other hand if KKR defeat KXIP and then RCB defeat SRH, then SRH, MI and KKR will all be at 14 points and two teams with better NRR will go through.

Here are the scenarios (MI loses both the games):

Case 1:

30 April – Match 49: RCB vs RR – RCB/RR

1 May – Match 50: CSK vs DC – CSK/DC

2 May – Match 51: MI vs SRH – SRH

3 May – Match 52: KXIP vs KKR – KKR/KXIP

4 May – Match 53: DC vs RR – DC

4 May – Match 54: RCB vs SRH – SRH

5 May – Match 55: KXIP vs CSK – KXIP

5 May – Match 56: MI vs KKR – KKR

If this happens, then MI and either KKR or KXIP will finish with 14 points. SRH will qualify with 16 points.

Case 2:

30 April – Match 49: RCB vs RR – RCB/RR

1 May – Match 50: CSK vs DC – CSK/DC

2 May – Match 51: MI vs SRH – SRH

3 May – Match 52: KXIP vs KKR – KKR

4 May – Match 53: DC vs RR – DC

4 May – Match 54: RCB vs SRH – RCB

5 May – Match 55: KXIP vs CSK – KXIP/CSK

5 May – Match 56: MI vs KKR – KKR

If this happens then MI, KKR and SRH will end up on 14 points. Only two teams will go through based on better NRR as CSK and DC have qualified for playoffs.
