Kolkata Knight Riders – 19 points (NRR: +1.428)

Rajasthan Royals – 19 May

Irrespective of the result of KKR's last match against Rajasthan Royals, it is certain that they will play in Qualifier 1 as only one other team (RR) can overtake them on points.

Rajasthan Royals – 16 points (NRR: +0.349)

Punjab Kings – 15th May

Kolkata Knight Riders – 19 May

eligibility scenario

Victory in both the matches will give RR not only a place in the playoffs but also a ticket for Qualifier 1.

They will still qualify for the playoffs with just one win. However, their participation in Qualifier 1 will depend on the results of SRH's last two matches.

Even if they lose both the matches, RR are likely to qualify for the playoffs as only CSK, SRH and LSG can get 16 points, and LSG has a worse NRR. Therefore, Royals will be ahead unless – a) Lucknow wins both of its last two matches by big margins; B) Both CSK and SRH do not get 16 points.

Chennai Super Kings – 14 points (NRR: +0.528)

Royal Challengers Bangalore – 18 May

eligibility scenario

If CSK wins then it will have 16 points. Due to their healthy NRR, 16 points should be enough to qualify for the playoffs, unless SRH also reaches 16 points and LSG wins their last two matches by incredibly large margins.

If CSK loses to RCB, they will be at the mercy of other teams. First of all, they have to hope that they lose by a narrow margin, so as to stay ahead of RCB on NRR. Still, they have to hope that either SRH loses their last two matches, or LSG loses at least one of their last two fixtures, and DC does not win their last match by a huge margin.

Sunrisers Hyderabad – 14 points (NRR: +0.406)

Gujarat Titans – 16 May

Punjab Kings – 19th May

eligibility scenario

If SRH wins its last two matches, it will have 18 points and will be assured of a place in the playoffs. Depending on the results of Rajasthan, they can also play in Qualifier 1.

If SRH wins one of their few remaining fixtures, they are still likely to qualify for the playoffs unless CSK beats RCB and LSG wins their last two matches by huge margins.

Should SRH not win any matches from here, they will have to hope for several favorable results – first, a CSK win over RCB, and then, at least a loss to LSG and even if DC wins their last match, But this should not happen by a large margin.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru – 12 points (NRR: +0.387)

Chennai Super Kings – 18 May

eligibility scenario

RCB will not only need a win against CSK, but they will also need to reduce the NRR gap by chasing the target of around 200 runs in 18.1 overs, or 18 runs if they are batting first and getting the same score. Will have to win from. If they succeed in doing so, RCB will have to hope that LSG don't win both of their last two matches, and DC don't win their last match by a margin that this competition has never seen before. .

Delhi Capitals – 12 points (NRR: -0.482)

Lucknow Super Giants- 14 May

Even if DC beats LSG in their last match, their chances of reaching the playoffs will still be slim. First of all they have to win by a big margin. Secondly, they have to hope that CSK beats RCB and SRH loses their last two matches by big margins.

Lucknow Super Giants – 12 points (NRR: -0.769)

Delhi Capitals- 14 May

Mumbai Indians – 17 May

eligibility scenario

Despite having the worst NRR among the top 7 teams, Lucknow will qualify for the playoffs if they win their last two matches, provided RCB beats CSK. If CSK wins that match, SRH will have to lose their last two matches to make way for LSG.

If LSG wins one of their remaining two fixtures, their chances of qualification are practically zero due to their NRR.

To remove

Gujarat Titans – 11 points (NRR: -1.063)

Sunrisers Hyderabad – 16 May

Gujarat Titans could only reach 13 points, and hence, they are now officially out.

Mumbai Indians – 8 points (NRR: -0.271)

Lucknow Super Giants- 17th May

They are already out of the running, but could help some teams by jeopardizing LSG's chances.

Punjab Kings – 8 points (NRR: -0.423)

Rajasthan Royals – 15 May

Sunrisers Hyderabad – 19 May
