Mumbai Indians IPL 2023 Qualification Scenario


IPL 2023: The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians will be up against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 69 of the Indian Premier League 2023. Mumbai will be willing to win the MI vs SRH IPL 2023 match and also give themselves a chance to qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament. Also, the team will be keeping a look at the Royal Challengers Bangalore who will be playing their match against Gujarat Titans just after their match against Sunrisers. 

Mumbai Indians didn't have a good start to their Indian Premier League 2023 campaign as they lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings in their first two matches of the season and also had a bitter and sour season as they were never able to carry forward a good winning momentum.
