IPL 2021: Mumbai Indians are officially knocked out of the tournament and Kolkata Knight Riders have qualified for the play-offs. The Rohit Sharma-led side needed to win by 171 runs or more to have a shot at qualifying for the playoffs.

Opting to bat first against Hyderabad, they notched up a massive 235-run total on the board but Hyderabad were 70/1 after the first six overs, crushing the defending champions' hopes of achieving a top-four finish.

IPL 2021 Playoff Qualification Scenario: Mumbai Indians

The defending champions are currently sixth in the table and require a win to match the fourth-placed Kolkata Knight Riders (14 points in 14 games). However, KKR's last-night one-sided win of 86 runs over direct rivals Rajasthan Royals has made the path for MI leading to play-offs stiffer. MI, who currently have a run rate of -0.048, requires a landslide win on the evening to pip KKR.

In order to make it to the play-offs, MI must beat SRH by a comprehensive margin of 171 runs. If SRH bats first, then MI qualification hopes will end immediately.

SRH are long out of the qualification race with just three wins (6 points) in 13 games and will play for pride against MI.
