Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians have already qualified for the IPL 2020 playoffs after getting to 18 points in their last match by beating Delhi Capitals. Meanwhile, Delhi are on 14 points and have a game to go against RCB, in a couple of hours time from now. They need to win that game to finish in the top two. Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh, who is enjoying his time away from the game, has taken a sly dig at the two cricketers over a photo posted on MI’s Twitter handle.
The MI Twitter handle posted an image of Rohit and Pant talking to each other after their game in Dubai. “Still waiting for that six-hitting competition between Pant and Ro”, was the caption of the picture with the two of them talking.

Yuvraj Singh Takes a Cheeky Dig at Rishabh Pant & Rohit Sharma
Yuvraj Singh meanwhile was quick to respond to the picture and replied on Twitter saying,
“Or a competition of fat percent on their cheeks @ritssajdeh”.
He didn’t stop here and added further – “It’s like ro is saying to pant tere gaal jyada Motey hain ya mere ?”
Meanwhile, three teams now have been eliminated from the tournament this season, Chennai Super Kings were the first team to be knocked out of the tournament. They won their last game to knock KXIP out of the tournament. While KKR registered a big win over RR to knock them out of the tournament.
Delhi Capitals are placed third on the points table, while RCB second. The result of this game will decide who finishes the league stage on third and fourth. The final game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad will decide the final four teams who go through to the playoffs.
A win for SRH would mean they qualify as the fourth team in the knockouts by eliminating KKR who are currently placed fourth with a negative run-rate. SRH, on the other hand, have a positive net run-rate.
