  • Rain affecting the match:
    • In a five-over shootout:
      • Chasing 75: Win within 3.1 overs.

Who joins KKR in Qualifier 1?

  • RR has the easiest path:
    • Win both matches against KKR (one on Sunday, one on Tuesday).
  • If RR loses to KKR:
    • Both CSK and SRH need to lose their last games for RR to finish second.
    • A win against PBKS secures SRH’s Qualifier 1 spot (if RR loses to KKR).
    • If KKR beats RR and SRH-PBKS washes out (and CSK loses), RR qualifies due to more wins.
  • CSK can only finish second if:
    • They beat RCB.
    • KKR beats RR.
    • SRH loses to PBKS.
    • With equal points (16), CSK qualifies due to better NRR or more wins (compared to RR and SRH).

LSG’s Chances:

  • Mathematically possible, but highly unlikely.
  • They can only finish on 14 points.
  • Eliminated if CSK beats RCB (reaching 16 points).
  • A win for RCB and LSG against MI leads to a three-way tie (all at 14 points). LSG needs a massive win (beating MI by 310+ runs batting first) to even have a chance (depending on RCB’s win margin).

This clash between RCB and CSK is crucial for both teams, with the winner advancing and the loser seeing their season end.
