In this IPL season so far, only Gujarat Titans have been able to make it to the playoffs. Apart from this, Chennai and Mumbai are those teams, which have been left out of the playoff race this time. Now, from the remaining 7 teams, three playoff teams will be selected. Currently teams from Lucknow, Rajasthan and Bangalore are leading this race. But the Delhi team is no slouch here either. Delhi Capitals can also easily reach the playoffs if they win the remaining two matches. Even if he loses a couple of games here, he will still have a chance to make the playoffs, although in this situation he will have to rely on the results of other games.

  • Delhi won at least one of their two remaining matches. In such a situation, Delhi will have 7 wins from 14 matches. Delhi’s margin of victory must be large so that the net run rate can be better than other teams.
  • RCB lose their remaining two matches to Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans. In such a situation, the number of matches won by RCB will also be 7 and the execution rate will also be lower than that of Delhi.
  • KKR win their next match against SRH and lose to Lucknow. Even if KKR beats Lucknow, KKR’s total win will be only 7. Bus run rate must be less than Delhi.
  • SRH lose their remaining three matches to Punjab, Kolkata and Mumbai. By the way, even if SRH wins in Kolkata and Mumbai, their total victory will still be only 7. Even then, based on Delhi’s net run rate, there will be scope to make the playoffs.
  • Rajasthan should also lose their remaining two matches. That is, the Rajasthan team loses to Lucknow and Chennai. In such a situation, Rajasthan will also be limited to 7 wins and the playoff team will be decided on the basis of net run rate.
  • Punjab Kings should win their next match against Bangalore and Hyderabad and lose the match against Delhi. In such a situation, Punjab’s win will also remain 7 and there will be chances for Delhi to make the playoffs on the basis of net runs.

If the above mentioned equations are done, then the Delhi team can make it to the tiebreaker even after losing a match. In such a situation, the place of Gujarat, Lucknow and Delhi in the playoffs will be confirmed. The fourth team in the playoffs will be decided based on the net run rate.
