Back-to-back wins by KKR, SRH and DC make for an exciting playoff race, top 10 contending teams for last 4

The playoff race in IPL 2023 is getting exciting. So far, 53 games have been played this season and no team has reached the playoffs or been out of the playoff race. At one point, KKR, SRH, and DC had lost 6-6 games and were in danger of being out of the playoff race, but these teams are still standing. By winning back-to-back games, these teams have not only kept their playoff hopes alive, but also created problems for the rest of the teams.

In this IPL season, only Gujarat Titans is a team that is on the threshold of playoffs after winning 8 matches and their entry can be considered almost certain. The claim of no one in the rest of the teams can be called strong. CSK has 6 wins from 11 matches so far while Lucknow, Rajasthan and Punjab teams are in the field with 5-5 wins from 11-11 matches. Mumbai and Bangalore have also won 5-5 matches. After winning the match last night, now KKR also has 5 wins. While Delhi and Hyderabad have 4-4 wins. Both teams also have an extra game on hand.

Delhi Capitals once came close to becoming the first team to be eliminated in the playoff race after losing the first five games of this season. But this team came back strong and surprised everyone by winning 4 of their last 5 matches. Now most of the players on this team look in rhythm. With the one-sided manner in which Delhi defeated RCB in the last match, the possibility of this team reaching the playoffs cannot be ruled out. However, Delhi will still have to win all their remaining matches here.

For Sunrisers Hyderabad, the process of winning and losing has been going on this season. In the match held on May 7th he was almost out of the playoff race but Rajasthan Royals’ Sandeep Sharma no-ball brought this team to life. The Sunrisers have kept their playoff hopes alive by winning this game. SRH will also have to win the remaining 4 matches to enter the playoffs.

When KKR lost their sixth game this season on April 29, there was speculation that now KKR would be out of the playoff race in the next one or two games. But this team won their previous two games in exciting fashion and now the situation is that this team has reached the fifth position in the points table. If KKR wins the remaining three games from here, it can also make it to the playoffs.
