IPL Playoff Scenario: Now all the teams have played their 6 matches in the Indian Premier League. Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have played seven matches. Meanwhile, the discussion has also started about which teams will reach the playoffs this year and which ones will be left behind. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals, captained by Sanju Samson, have almost confirmed their place, but the difficulty seems to be increasing for the other teams.

Rajasthan team number one in points table

When there was a match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday, the competition was between first and second places. It was already expected that the match would be tough, which is what happened. It was not known till the last ball which team would win, however in the end Rajasthan won the match. Meanwhile, Rajasthan team is still in the number position and now has 12 points.

To go to the playoffs, you will need at least 16 points.

This year 10 teams are participating in the Indian Premier League. This has been happening for the last three years. If we look at the points table for the years 2022 and 2023, we find that to go to the playoffs the team will have to win at least 8 matches. Because the team which stood fourth both the years also had 16 points. In the year 2022, RCB had reached the playoffs with 16 points, while in the year 2023, Mumbai Indians had reached the playoffs with 16 points. That is, if we look at it accordingly, Rajasthan Royals will have to win only two more matches out of their remaining 7 matches. However, the team will try to finish in the top 2 so that it gets a chance to play the qualifiers directly and this will also be beneficial as the team will get two chances to reach the finals.

KKR, CSK and SRH are also strong contenders

Apart from Rajasthan Royals' 12 points, KKR, CSK and SRH also have 8 points. This means that these teams will still have to win at least 8 more of their remaining matches. This is not a very difficult task for them, but for the teams which are currently running at the bottom of the table, problems may increase for them. Especially for Aasbi, it has won only one match out of seven played so far. If the team loses one more match, then it will not be impossible for it to move ahead, but it will definitely become very difficult. However, till now neither any team has qualified for the playoffs nor any team has been eliminated.

Apart from RCB, the condition of Punjab Kings, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals is bad.

Apart from RCB, Punjab Kings, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals now have four points after winning two matches each. As soon as they lose more than one or two matches, their problems will start increasing. Because then gathering 16 points may prove to be a difficult task for them. GT and LSG are currently in the middle of the points table with six points each. There is a need for them also to start the winning streak from here. It is believed that after a few more matches, a rough estimate will be made as to which teams will be going to the playoffs and which ones will be out. Wait for a few more days for this.
