By defeating KKR in match 68 of IPL 2023, Lucknow Super Giants also confirmed their playoff ticket. With this, three teams have now been decided for the final 4 and their positions have also been decided. Gujarat Titans are on top and will stay there till the end. At the same time, CSK will also remain in second place. Also, with this victory, the Lucknow Super Giants team will remain in third position with 17 points. Now the fight for fourth place is between RCB and the Mumbai Indians. If both teams lose their last match, then the fate of Rajasthan will be open.

And if the Mumbai Indians beat the Sunrisers in their last match and RCB beat the Gujarat titans there, then net run rate will come into play there. As of now, RCB’s net run rate is 0.180 and Mumbai’s is -0.128, which is much lower than RCB’s. In this situation, if Mumbai win a close match, they will be eliminated even after winning. That means Mumbai needs a big win. Or after his victory he will have to wish the defeat of the RCB. If both teams lose, there will be a chance for Rajasthan.

How will there be a chance for Rajasthan?

The Rajasthan team has won 7 out of 14 matches and has 14 points. While Rajasthan’s net run rate is 0.15 and RCB’s net run rate is 0.18 i.e. there is a difference of only 0.03. Mumbai is in the negative. If Mumbai and RCB lose their match then in that case Rajasthan Royals can qualify for playoffs. That is, it would be wrong to say that the hopes of Sanju Samson’s team are over.

Clear Image of Qualifier 1

Apart from this, now it is also clear that Chennai Super Kings will be in the second position in the points table and Gujarat Titans will be on top even if they lose the last match against RCB. Namely, in Qualifier 1, which will be played at Chepauk on May 23, Chennai Super Kings will face Gujarat Titans. The winning team in this match will go to the final. The losing team will face the winner of the Eliminator in Qualifier 2 on May 26 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The final of the tournament will also be played on this field on May 28.
