How IPL 2020 playoff scenarios changes after KXIP defeat to CSK ?
KXIP is almost eliminated from IPL 2020
MI, RCB, DC are above them on points & SRH is above them on NRR
Even if SRH lose against MI, still they will have better NRR than KXIP and will qualify
Other than that KKR can qualify by beating Rajasthan Royals or vice-versa.
Match 53 – Nov 1st Chennai Super Kings vs Kings XI Punjab (CSK beat KXIP) Match 54 – Nov 1st Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals Match 55 – Nov 2nd Delhi Capitals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Match 56 – Nov 3rd Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Mumbai Indians
Check what all teams need to do to qualify for IPL 2020 playoffs as they gear up for the their last league match –
Kings XI Punjab: Played 14, Points 12, NRR -0.133 – KXIP now has no chance to qualify.
Rajasthan Royals: Played 13, Points 12, NRR -0.377 (Remaining match: vs Knight Riders)
Should win last game against KKR reach 14 points, pray other results go their way
They would want, SRH lose their last match. If that happens RR can progress without NRR coming into play.
Royals NRR is poor at this stage – they will have to win last match with high margins and other would have to lose big for Royals to bridge the run-rate gap. Overall little difficult for Royals to qualify.
Kolkata Knight Riders: Played 13, Points 12, NRR -0.467 (Remaining match vs Rajasthan Royals)
Chances almost negligible for KKR to qualify
KKR NRR is very inferior than other teams
Only chance of qualification is if they beat Royals and finish on 14, and none of the other contenders get to that tally.
Beat RR first
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Played 13, Points 14, NRR -0.145 Remaining match: vs Capitals
RCB now play DC in virtual quarterfinals on Monday
If they lose they can still qualify – provided they have a better run-rate than others but will be on mercy of others.
Best Chance – win the game and go through in style as No.2 team in the points table
