Mumbai Indians played a support role in letting Delhi Daredevils book a seat in the semi-finals of the Indian Premier League.
Mumbai lost to Rajasthan Royals in their second last league match and left their fate hanging in the hands of Chennai Super Kings who play the down and out Deccan Chargers on Tuesday.
Chennai need to win theie combat against the lowest placed Deccan in order to enter the semi finals along with Rajasthan Royals, Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils.
It is a race between Mumbai Indians and Chennai for the semi-final spot in the first edition of the lucrative and extravagant BCCI backed IPL. Mumbai would be keeping their fingers crossed and would be hoping that there is Gilly firework tonight or a Gibbs backup against the Super Kings. They will then have to win their match against Bangalore Royal Challengers to overtake Dhoni’s team and enter the highway mode.
Mumbai have 12 points from 13 matches whereas Chennai are on 14 from the equal number of matches. The decision might ultimately boil down to the net run rate where Mumbai have an upper hand.
