New Delhi: Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians will have to get their act together against the Perth Scorchers on Wednesday if they want to qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League Twenty20.
However, the Mumbai team's fate doesn't rest on the match alone. They will also be hoping for a Rajasthan Royals victory against the Otago Volts at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur Tuesday. A win for Otago will end Mumbai Indians hope for a place in the last-four.
"We need to play a good game. We missed a match which is why we are in this problematic situation today," Mumbai Indians head coach John Wright said at the Ferozeshah Kotla here Tuesday.
Mumbai India's match against Otago in Ahmedabad was washed out due to rain.
If the Rajasthan Royals manage a win against the Volts, the 2011 edition champions will need to drub the Scorchers by a big margin to qualify for the semis.
