IPL 2021: Salman Butt said – this is why Mumbai Indians should be out of the playoffs
5-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians are currently at number six in the points table with six wins in 13 matches in the 14th season of the league. The team is almost out of the race for the playoffs. If Mumbai Indians want to go to the playoffs, then they will have to bat first and score 200 runs in the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. After this, they have to win by at least 171 runs, and only then they can go to the playoffs. On the other hand, if Sunrisers Hyderabad's batting comes first, then Mumbai Indians will be out of the playoff race at that time only.
Meanwhile, former Pakistan captain Salman Butt believes that it is very good for Mumbai Indians to be out of the playoff race. He said that this will help the new teams to win the title. Talking on his YouTube channel, Salman Butt said, Mumbai Indians are a great team. Despite several poor starts, the team went on to win the tournament in the end.
He further said that when he starts winning, then other teams are not able to match him. Teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals will benefit greatly from the exit of Mumbai Indians. It is a good thing that Mumbai Indians are out of the playoffs because when they start winning from the bottom rung, they often come out as champions.
