Whereas for Mumbai things are looking clumsy after two losses in their last two matches. The first team to qualify for the knockouts will have to beat RCB first and then have to wait for Delhi Capitals vs UP Warriorz result for the confirmation of the final spot in the inaugural WPL.
As things stand, if Mumbai wins their game against RCB and Delhi loses it against UP, then the Ambani-owned team will advance to the final, but if Delhi too wins their last game then whoever has a better net run rate will be through.
