17:40 – How MI and PBKS can qualify for playoffs

Punjab Kings – 3 Victories of 4 Remaining Matches: The perrenial under-achievers of IPL, Punjab Kings is at No. 5 position in the IPL Points table. They have 8 points from 10 matches & need to improve their NRR & also win 3 games out of 4 to qualify for IPL Playoffs.

In the remaining matches, PBKS will face: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and Mumbai Indians (MI).

Mumbai Indians – Win 4 out of 4 Games: The playoff race for defending champion Mumbai Indians is getting shaky with passing of each and every match.

They have lost all 3 matches in Phase 2 of IPL. MI Players are looking very rusty, out of form and playoff hopes are getting dented with every passing match.

MI has now falled to 7th position in IPL Points Table. The Rohit Sharma-led side, who has won the IPL title record 5 times can still qualify for Playoffs but can’t afford any more slip up.

Their NRR is very poor and that is the reason it will be safer for them to win all 4 games and qualify for playoffs in style. Otherwise even 3 victories from 4 matches can get them a playoff spot.

MI has to face Delhi Capitals (DC), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), and Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the remaining matches.
