Delhi Capitals: Delhi Capitals are Officially knocked out. David Warner’s side have finished their campaign with 5 wins under their belt, with 10 points in 14 games. In their last game, the Capitals suffered a 77-run defeat against Chennai Super Kings at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.
Rajasthan Royals: Rajasthan Royals’ topsy-turvy season has come to an end. With Mumbai Indians beating Sunrisers Hyderabad, RR have been knocked out of the playoff race. RR started the season brilliantly but lost 4 games out of 7 in the last 7. It included a horrible 59-run collapse. It badly hit their Net Run Rate and RR ended up with just 14 points and in 5th spot.
Lucknow Super Giants: LSG have officially secured the Playoff spot with a 1-run win against KKR. With 17 points from 14 games, LSG has secured the 3rd spot and will play the Eliminator.
Chennai Super Kings: CSK have qualified for the playoffs. MS Dhoni’s side defeated Delhi Capitals to confirm their place in the Top 4. With 17 points, CSK can actually finish in the Top 2. However, that would depend on the result in the KKR vs LSG clash.
Gujarat Titans: The defending champions came back strongly to go on and defeat SRH by 34 runs. And with this win they have now gone on to register their second successive playoff spot. For a second year in a row, GT have finished on the top with 20 points.
Punjab Kings: In another topsy-turvy season, Punjab Kings have ended their hopes of qualification with second consecutive loss to Rajasthan Royals by 4 wickets. PBKS have finished their campaign with 12 points from 14 games.
Mumbai Indians: With 16 points from 14 games, Rohit Sharma & Co thrashed Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets to keep their playoff hopes alive. However, they need favour from former Mumbai all-rounder Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans. If GT win, MI will qualify but if RCB win, Virat Kohli & Co will seal the eliminator spot against LSG.
Kolkata Knight Riders: KKR hopes of qualifying for Playoffs shattered when they failed to chase 177 in 8.5 overs. The Min in Purple eventually lost the game by 1 run.
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Another year and wait only gets longer. RCB had their fate in their own hands and they failed to defend 197 at bowlers’ graveyard M Chinnaswamy Stadium. With Shubman Gill playing a wonderful knock of 104, Gujarat Titans won by 6 wickets to knock them out of Playoff race. RCB finished 6th with 14 points from as many games.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: In another forgettable season, SRH finished at rock bottom with just 4 wins or 8 points. Cameron Green smashed a century as Mumbai Indians handed Aiden Markram & Co their 10th defeat of the season.
