We bow out of #IPL2021 with a win and our heads held high! 💙— Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) October 8, 2021
We gave it our all but the qualification scenario turned out to be out of our reach. 💔#OneFamily #MumbaiIndians #SRHvMI pic.twitter.com/iJ4C5NbjLp
Prior Match 55, Mumbai needed to win their match against Sunrisers Hyderabad by a margin of 171 runs. Sadly, it is the only scenario for them to qualify. Mumbai would have been eliminated if SRH batted first by winning the toss. So, the blue team were required to score 300 plus runs after winning toss and restrict SRH within 120 runs to qualify for the playoffs.
Keeping the possibilities in concern, MI opener Ishan Kishan started firing right from the start. He smashed 84 runs in just 32 deliveries. Surya Kumar Yadav also batted well for his 82. The team managed to 235 runs at the end of 20 overs. They were required to restrict SRH within 65 runs to qualify for the playoffs. The Manish Pandey led team effortlessly reached the score in their 6th over and officially eliminated Mumbai Indians from the tournament. However, they lost the match to Mumbai Indians.
In Usha Play Paltan’s player of the match contest, Ishan Kishan has been voted as the best player with 81%. Along with Surya Kumar Yadav who scored 82 runs in 40 balls, Jimmy Neesham who picked 2 wickets by conceding 28 runs was also included in the poll. While batting, the all rounder got out in the very first ball he faced.

In a pitch where 430+ runs were scored in 40 overs your figures look 3-0-28-2. You did well— Hellfire (@Sri_Hellfire) October 9, 2021
