WPL rules to qualify for the playoffs

Playoffs are scheduled to commence from March 24 onwards. The format for WPL 2023 is not like the one currently followed by the Indian Premier League (IPL). While a total of four teams (out of ten) qualify for the playoffs in the IPL, the WPL will see only three teams (out of five) qualify for the playoffs.

How the winner will be decided

The grand finale of the inaugural edition of WPL will take place at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, on March 26 (Sunday). The team which tops the points table after the end of the league stage directly qualifies for the finals. This means that the table-toppers would not be required to play the qualifiers to book their grand finale berth.

Thus, the first match of the playoffs will be the eliminator, which will take place between the second and third-placed teams in the points table. The teams which finish in the fourth and fifth spot in the table get eliminated.

What every team needs to do

Mumbai Indians (Q): Harmanpreet-led team has won five games out of 7 to qualify for the playoffs. But they have dropped to the second spot after suffering a heavy defeat at the hands of DC.

Remaining matches: 

  • March 21: vs RCB

Delhi Capitals (Q): The Meg Lanning-led side have also sealed their playoff spot despite a loss to Gujarat Giants. A dominating win against MI helped them take the top spot of the points table.

Remaining Matches:

  • March 21: vs UP Warriorz

UP Warriorz (Q): Warriorz have had a mixed season till now. But with a thrilling win over Gujarat Giants, they have sealed the last playoff berth available. With 8 points from 7 games, UPW have moved clear of both GG and RCB.

Remaining matches: 

  • March 21: vs Delhi Capitals

Gujarat Giants (E): In absence of Beth Mooney, Sneh Rana-led team has ebbed and flowed. But with their 3-wicket loss to UP Warriorz, GG have ended the campaign at rock-bottom with just 2 wins in 8 matches.

Royal Challengers Banglore (E): After five losses, RCB have bounced back with two consecutive wins. But the wins won’t matter as Smriti Mandhana and Co have been eliminated from the tournament.

  • March 21: vs MI

Remaining Fixture:

  • March 21: vs Mumbai Indians
