How can Mumbai Indians qualify for Champions League T20 semi-finalMumbai Indians have lost two matches out of two in the Champions League T20 and their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals are almost zero. However, mathematically speaking, Mumbai Indians can still qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League T20.
Currently, South Australia has four points from two games, and that have to play Bangalore and Guyana. Assuming that they win both their remaining games, South Australia will have eight from four, while Bangalore, having assumed to have lost to Mumbai and South Australia will have two from three.
This will mean that there are two matches remaining, Lions v Guyana and Bangalore v Lions. If Lions win both, Mumbai is out. If Lions win against Guyana, and lose to Bangalore, this will mean that all the three, Mumbai, Bangalore and Lions have equal number of points. This is where the net run-rate will come into the picture and Mumbai can sneak in through a better net run-rate.
Unfortunately for the Mumbai Indians, the Bangalore team finished off the Guyana side in 12 overs, which gives them a superlative net run-rate....being a human...
