So far, 41 games have been played in the IPL 2022 and 29 games of the league stage remain to be played. That is, there are many games to play to decide the four teams that qualify for the playoffs. However, looking at the results of the games so far, it is almost certain that some teams will make the playoffs. At the same time, it is clearly seen that some teams leave. Read an analysis on what equations seem to be forming at IPL 2022.
Gujarat have lost only one match in their 8 matches. On the other hand, Rajasthan have lost only two matches after playing the same number of matches. The Gujarat team has won 7 matches and 6 wins have been recorded in the Rajasthan account. In such a situation, the arrival to the playoffs of these two teams is almost clear.
Gujarat has 6 games left to play. If Gujarat wins even one match out of these 6 matches, their claim for the tiebreaker will be confirmed. This is because looking at the equations of the number of games to play, it is seen that any team will qualify after winning 8 of 14 games. The same is true for Rajasthan too. If Rajasthan win 2 of their remaining 6 matches then their place will also be confirmed in the playoffs. Looking at the recent form of these two teams, it looks like these teams will be making the playoffs soon.
Mumbai has lost all eight of its matches so far. Even if he wins his remaining 6 games, he finds it difficult to make the playoffs. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have also lost 6-6 matches so far. In such a situation, if they want to make it to the playoffs, they will have to win all the remaining games. However, looking at the previous matches of these two teams, this does not seem possible.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore teams have won 5-5 matches so far. At the same time, Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings won 4-4 matches. The real playoff battle can be seen between these five teams. All of these teams have a chance to win 8 or 9 games out of 14 and place their bets for the playoffs.
