IPL 2024: Can Mumbai Indians still qualify for playoff after 6th loss? Here what stats say

In the 43rd match of the Indian Premier League between five-time trophy-winning team Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals at Arun Jaitley Stadium on 27 April, MI lost by ten runs.

This was Mumbai Indians’ sixth loss in the ongoing IPL 2024 in the nine matches played. With this, they have reached the ninth spot in the IPL points tally, just above Royal Challengers Bangalore. MI now has 6 points with a Net Run Rate of -0.261.

Considering the scenarios they are in now, Hardik Pandya-led Mumbai Indians may still qualify for the play-offs, but with conditions imposed.

To qualify for the IPL 2024 playoffs, they will have to win all their remaining five matches with high margins, which would allow them to reach a maximum of 16 points.

However, with their current momentum, winning all five remaining matches may not be possible. So, they will have to depend on other teams’ performances.

Not only Mumbai Indians but Shikhar Dhawan-led Punjab Kings are in the same position. But the only thing going in their favour is the Net Run Rate of -0.187, which is better than MI.
