Playoff teams IPL 2021

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For simplicity, if teams aim for a min of 8 wins to get into playoffs, below is what the teams need to do:

 

% of remaining games needed to win 

 

DC 33%

CSK 43%

RCB 43%

MI 57%

RR 71%

PK 83%

KKR 86%

SRH 100% 

 

 

Technically, all teams are still in with a chance (to get to 8 wins). The top 3 need to win less than 50% of their remaining games, therefore would need to play very poorly to miss out. MI can afford to lose 3 games and RR 2 games. KKR & PK can afford to lose 1 more game. SRH cannot afford to lose any game so one loss away from being knocked out. 

 

Would teams be able to qualify with 7 wins + NRR? Will there be any surprises or the top 4 would sail to the playoffs?

It all depends on scenarios and overall performances of all the teams.

 

I think in 2019 SRH were able to qualify with only 6 wins(12 points).

This year, to qualify with "6 wins" appears difficult at the moment as DC is on 6, CSK & RCB on 5, and MI on 4 w/ most of them having 7 games still to play (so 1 of the current top 4 teams would need to play very poorly from now on to be limited to 6 or less wins)

 

TEAM M W L PT NRR
DC 8 6 2 12 0.547
CSK 7 5 2 10 1.263
RCB 7 5 2 10 -0.171
MI 7 4 3 8 0.062
RR 7 3 4 6 -0.190
PBKS 8 3 5 6 -0.368
KKR 7 2 5 4 -0.494
SRH 7 1 6 2 -0.623

Never seen a more polarized IPL..

Clear difference between the top 4 teams and the bottom 4 teams..

 

CSK, DC, MI will surely qualify.

 

PKBS, KKR and SRH don't seem to have a realistic chance.

 

Only swing that could happen is between RCB and RR.. Clearly, RCB are ahead now.. But they are capable of a choke and slump as seen in the past.. If RR can continue their current form and get a few wins and RCB go through a slump, RR might sneak into the top 4..

 

Other than that, the playoff qualifications are pretty much decided.. Who will finish in the top 2 could be interesting.
