As the Indian T20 league nears its conclusion, the competition for a position in the playoffs ramps up.  And, few teams have a chance to make the playoffs, and many have no chance whatsoever. Few teams will have a chance if other teams lose their games. However, only four teams are eligible to make the playoffs. Let us have a look at Which Team Will Qualify For IPL Playoffs. And, since it is the last week of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, all remaining 7 teams will have one more chance to compete in the league phase of the closing stages. Here in this article, we discussed Which Team Will Qualify For IPL Playoffs.

Since Gujarat Titans have already earned a playoff position, they have shown to be a formidable side in their maiden season. The victorious four-time and defending champions Chennai Super Kings and five-time champions Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, had a disastrous showing in the 2022 season and were therefore eliminated from the competition.

Which Team Will Qualify For IPL Playoffs Contexts:

#7 Sunrisers Hyderabad (M:13, W: 6, L: 7, Pts: 12, NRR: -0.230)

After their victory on Tuesday, SRH increased their prospects of getting into the top 4 places in the standings, giving them a narrow opportunity to go to the playoffs. They have a chance to accomplish so if they survive their final match and Hyderabad will wish RCB to lose against GT. Within this case, SRH will conclude with 14 points and tie for 4th place with either 2 (DC and RCB) or 3 (DC, RCB, and KKR), following the conclusion of the match between KKR and LSG. DC and RCB will also conclude with 14 points. It will be again NRR come into action.

#6 Punjab Kings (M:13, W: 6, L: 7, Pts: 12, NRR: -0.043)

The probabilities of PBKS getting in the top 4 in terms of points remain to tie with KKR. In order for them to get topped, they need to win against SRH and wish that MI can win against DC and also GT to win against RCB. In such a situation, they will be enhanced with respect to points alongside NRR, either two (DC and RCB) or 3 (DC, RCB, & KKR), regardless of the outcome of the match between KKR and LSG.

#5 Kolkata Knight Riders (M:13, W: 6, L: 7, Pts: 12, NRR: +0.160)

There is a fair possibility that KKR may finish in one of the top 4 teams in terms of individual stats. To do this, they must first win their next match versus LSG, and then they should wish that GT will conquer RCB and that MI will triumph over DC. It would put them on fair terms with 3 other teams at 14 points (DC, RCB, and either SRH or PBKS), respectively.

#4 Royal Challengers Bangalore (M:13, W: 7, L: 6, Pts:14, NRR: -0.323)

RCB, like DC, has the best chance of finishing in the top 4 if they survive their final match versus GT and hope that both LSG & RR drop their matchups versus KKR & CSK, respectively. RCB‘s chances of finishing in the top 4 remain intact. It would connect them with either 2 teams (LSG & RR) or 3 teams (LSG, RR, and DC), regardless of the outcome of the game featuring DC and MI. Although if they fail their final game, they might wind up locked for 4th position with respect to the NRR in consideration of other teams’ outcomes.

#3 Delhi Capitals (M:13, W: 7, L: 6, Pts:14, NRR: +0.255)

The probability of DC finishing in one of the top 4 spots in terms of points continues to be rather strong. The most favorable outcome for them would be to win their final match versus MI and then wish that both LSG and RR should fail to win their matchups versus KKR & CSK, accordingly. Which would place them in a three-way tie for 2nd place alongside LSG & RR with 16 points each and guarantee that they would qualify. Although if they drop their last match against MI, they still have a chance to complete tied for 4th position if GT is victorious against RCB and MI prevails over DC. They will subsequently be tied for 4th place with either 2 RCB and (SRH or PK) or 3 (RCB, KKR, & SRH or PBKS) other teams depending on whatever scenario for NRR.

#2 Lucknow Super Giants (M:13, W: 8, L: 5, Pts: 16, NRR: +0.262)

LSG is situated in a similar manner followed by RR. They will definitely tie for 2nd or 3rd place at the very least. They have a chance to move up to the solitary 2nd position in the standings if they survive their final match against KKR and also CSK should defeat RR. Even though they defeat their final game, unlike RR, they still have a chance to qualify for the playoffs if they are tied for 3rd place with a strong NRR.

#1 Rajasthan Royals (M:13, W: 8, L: 5, Pts: 16, NRR: +0.304)

RR will very certainly end up in 2nd or 3rd place on the standings. Their greatest chance of success will be to defeat CSK and then watch KKR handle things versus LSG. If it were to happen, they would move up to outright 2nd spot with 18 points. However if they do lose against CSK, they still have a chance to qualify for the playoffs by either securing firm control of the 3rd position (in the assumption if KKR defeats LSG, MI defeats DC, and GT defeats RCB), or by pairing for 3rd place with either RCB or DC or perhaps both. In the event there will be a three-way dispute, the decision will be based on the teams’ respective NRR.
