Currently Rajasthan Royals are 4th in the points table with 14 points and net run-rate of +0.247 while Mumbai Indians are 5th in the table with 12 points and a net run-rate of -0.086.

Hence, a win is not enough for Mumbai Indians, they also need to better their run rate than RR to qualify.

Equation :

If Mumbai bat first they will have to win by at least 42 runs or if chasing they will have to do it in 15 overs to get the better run rate. For Rajasthan it’s easier. Even a narrow win would help them go through to the playoffs.
