Ajay Jadeja said Mumbai Indians won in 70 runs against SunRisers Hyderabad: IPL 2021. Ajay feels the odds are heavily stacked against the Mumbai Indians. It’s regarding their playoff chances in IPL 2021. Mumbai and Hyderabad will face each other in their last league game of IPL 2021. Whereas SunRisers Hyderabad is out of the dispute. Mumbai Indians require a wonder to jump the Knight Riders to reach the playoffs. The defending champions must beat the SunRisers by at least 171 runs. Moreover, to boost their net run-rate over Kolkata.
Jadeja feels the Mumbai Indians do not have a chance of making it to the playoffs. In any case, as a Mumbai Indians fan, Jadeja considers KKR deserves a playoff spot. After lost out multiple times due to net run-rate issues.
“Mumbai Indians scoring 200 and winning against SunRisers Hyderabad is a possibility. But winning by 170 runs is impossible and it’s coming from a Mumbai Indians fan. Mumbai Indians will stand nowhere when chasing a total. Sometimes you have to accept you were outplayed and eight teams fight tooth and nail to win,” Ajay Jadeja said.
“I think it’s a big blow for Mumbai Indians, given they were so high on confidence. So, the support staff and fans will be disappointed. But KKR has always been unfortunate due to the net run rate,” Jadeja added.
In addition, Jadeja supports Mumbai to go out there. Also, give everything as making 260-270 shouldn’t be impossible for them. Jadeja wants India’s bowlers featuring in the World T20 to be rested of the country.
“From the fans’ point of view, they would want Mumbai to try their best if the team has a mathematical chance. Making 260-270 is not an impossible task and Mumbai should take the field with such an approach and hope they can steer their side to those heights,” Jadeja added.
Ajay Jadeja said to Mumbai Indians, “Lastly, from India’s perspective, the ones going to play the World T20, hope they get an opportunity to play because I don’t see a chance realistically. I hope they play and rest any Indian bowlers ahead of the World Cup as the country comes before the franchise,” Ajay Jadeja also said.
