IPL 2021 Playoff race: Current playoff scenarios for KKR, PBKS, MI, RR

What Kolkata Knight Riders require to Qualify – Currently 4th on Points Table

  • Simple Equation for them, win final match vs Rajasthan Royals, book the place & Qualify for Playoffs. Their superior NET RUN RATE will take them through with win.
  • With a win over SRH, KKR now need to win the last game vs RR to qualify for the playoffs.
  • The situation will get difficult if KKR lose the last game.
  • In that scenario, only Mumbai Indians can match them on 14 points, but MI would need to win their last two matches by a combined aggregate of around 190 runs to go past KKR’s net run rate.
  • If KKR lose to RR, then they would require MI to beat RR and SRH to beat MI, which would leave multiple teams on 12 points each and net run rate would help KKR pip the rest.

Remaining game: vs RR (Oct 7)

IPL 2021 Playoff Race: What Punjab Kings require to Qualify – – Currently 5th on Points Table

  • PBKS is in a difficult place now. They just have 1 match left. They are currently at 5th on points table but very precariously placed
  • First thing first – PBKS have to win last match vs CSK & that too by big margin
  • Then they will have to wait for the results of other matches
  • They can only get to 12 points and would require neither KKR, RR or MI to go past 12 points. For that to happen, PBKS has to beat table toppers CSK first and then RR has to beat KKR and lose to MI, and then MI has to lose to SRH. PBKS’s net run rate is -0.241 and it would require a big win against CSK to lift it past the other contenders – especially KKR – to stand any chance of qualification.
  • OVERALL almost NIL chances for them to QUALIFY & BOOK a PLAYOFF SPOT

Remaining game: vs CSK (Oct 7)

What Rajasthan Royals require to Qualify –  Currently 6th on Points Table

  • RR has to win both games if they have to qualify vs KKR & MI
  • RR vs MI on Tuesday: Victory in this will mean Mumbai Indians crash out
  • RR vs KKR on Thursday: This can be a virtual knockout, victory for either of them will take them to playoffs provided RR beats MI as well
  • However, in case of a 12-point tie, RR is 0.631 points behind KKR’s net run rate and they would need to beat KKR by around 75 runs in their final league game to get ahead of KKR’s current net run rate.

Rajasthan Royals: Remaining games: vs MI (Oct 5), vs KKR (Oct 7)

IPL 2021 Playoff Race: What Mumbai Indians require to Qualify –  Currently 7th on Points Table

  • Mumbai Indians are in a dangerous situation and could miss out even after winning their last two games. They have an NRR of -0.453, the lowest among the contenders and only big wins can take them to the playoffs.
  • MI face Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals, with the former already knocked out.
  • Their best-case scenario is to win both their remaining matches and hope RR get the better of KKR. In that case, MI will get to 14 points while KKR and RR both finish on 12 each and net run rate does not come into the picture.
  • MI could get eliminated even if they win their last two matches, on net run rate, if KKR beat RR.

Remaining games: vs RR (Oct 5), vs SRH (Oct 8)
