MI IPL 2023 Playoffs

The Mumbai Indians (MI) are definitely the most successful team in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with as many as five titles in their kitty, but they have even failed to qualify for the playoffs during the last two editions of the tournaments. Things did not panned out in an ideal manner for the Rohit Sharma-led MI team in their most recent IPL 2023 encounter as they suffered a comprehensive 8-wicket defeat at the hands of arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings. Mumbai Indians are currently occupying the 8th position on the points table with 5 victories and as many losses in the ongoing IPL 2023 season.

Team IPL 2023 Playoffs chances
Mumbai Indians (MI) Despite a lacklustre campaign, Mumbai Indians remains in the playoff race thanks to its strong batting depth. While a victory over Chennai Super Kings could have greatly boosted their chances, the five-time champions are still very much in the mix with ten points, tied with three other teams.

With four wins in their remaining matches, MI could potentially secure a top-two finish. Even with just three wins, they could still be in a good position heading into the final stretch. However, it’s crucial for Rohit Sharma’s men to focus on improving their net run rate in case the playoffs come down to that.

While talking about the Mumbai Indians’ remaining matches in the Indian Premier League 2023, they will be playing as many as three home games against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad on 9, 12 and 21 May, 2023 respectively. The Mumbai Indians will also be facing Lucknow Super Giants in an away game on 16 May, 2023.
