Mumbai Indians are fifth on the points table at the moment and have three games to go in IPL 2021 league stage. They need to win all their remaining matches to make it to the final four. Also they would like a few results to go their way. Meanwhile, Kevin Pietersen has backed the defending champions to make the final four for the playoffs.
In his blog on Betway, Kevin Pietersen analyzed the current playoff scenarios and gave his views on the recent developments. He reckoned that CSK, DC, and RCB would qualify for the next stage. He backed Mumbai Indians as the fourth team to make it to the last four.
“The IPL is heating up really nicely now, with the race for that fourth play-off spot well and truly on. Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Delhi Capitals will qualify, but there are four other teams vying to join them in the play-offs. I wrote before the resumption of the IPL that Mumbai Indians need to avoid their typical slow start if they are to retain the title this year” wrote KP on his blog.

He further said that with their matchwinners finding form against Punjab Kings in their last game, the side are now looking good to make it for the playoffs.
“Well, they did start slowly, but I think they might have turned it around just in time. After they beat Punjab Kings on Tuesday, I fancy them to take that fourth spot now. Their match-winners are coming into form. Hardik Pandya was in the runs, Jasprit Bumrah was in the wickets and Kieron Pollard did a bit of both” Pietersen further said in his blog.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians will keep a close eye on tonight’s contest between KKR and Punjab Kings. KKR are above Mumbai Indians with a better net-run rate on the points table on 10 points.
