CSK (14 points, matches played 13, NRR = +0.528)

Chennai’s last league fixture against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) will play a key role in their qualification for the playoffs. Even if they lose, CSK should make sure they don’t lose it with a big margin which can hamper their net run rate. However, if RR and SRH lose their last games against KKR and PBKS, CSK can also make it to the second spot on the points table if they have a better NRR and of course the in against RCB.

RCB have one game left against the Chennai Super Kings and it is a must win for them to keep playoffs qualification hopes alive. Also, they need to win it with a good margin to ensure their NNR doesn’t bother them compared to other competitors.

LSG (12 points, matches played 13, NNR = -0.787)

We can surely say the heavy loss against SRH hurt LSG’s NRR in a bad way and not they are in an improbable scenario.
