The dream of a sixth IPL title for Mumbai Indians (MI) ended abruptly on Wednesday night. Their elimination from playoffs contention was confirmed after Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) recorded a dominant victory over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in Hyderabad.

Record-Breaking Chase Seals MI’s Fate

SRH chased down LSG’s total of 165 runs with a staggering 10 wickets and 62 balls to spare. Openers Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma were unstoppable, scoring unbeaten half-centuries to rewrite the record books for the highest target chased within 10 overs in T20 cricket. This emphatic win by SRH not only propelled them back into playoffs contention but also eliminated MI from the race.

MI’s Struggles Throughout the Season

Hardik Pandya‘s return to the MI fold as captain this season failed to spark the five-time champions. Inconsistent batting performances and a lack of overall team balance plagued their campaign. Despite Jasprit Bumrah leading the wicket charts, MI’s struggles to find a consistent middle-order batting core proved costly.

Two Matches Remaining, A Season to Forget

MI still have two matches remaining in the IPL 2024 season, but these will be mere formalities with their playoff hopes extinguished. The focus for the team will likely shift towards building and strategizing for the upcoming season.
