Chennai Super Kings (CSK) – Through to Playoffs: After a terrible tour in IPL 2020, CSK is the team to defeat in IPL 2021. This is the history record 11th time that CSK has entered the semifinals or IPL Playoffs berth.

Delhi Capitals (DC) – Has Through to IPL Playoffs: Despite losing to KKR on Tuesday, Delhi Capitals have already qualified for the playoffs. As the IPL 2021 Points Table suggests, Rishabh Pant-led Delhi Capitals is at the No. 2 spot behind CSK.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) – Win 1 out of 3 remaining games: Virat Kohli's RCB has found the tempo as they defeated RR in their last match by seven wickets. Kohli's team has 14 points from 11 games with seven victories and comfortably places at No. 3 in IPL Points Table. Win in 1 of the three remaining matches will be enough for Kohli's team to enter IPL Playoffs.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) – 2 victories of 2 matches: The defeat to PBKS has made the qualification task very challenging for KKR. Eoin Morgan's side now needs not only victories in both remaining games – but would also hope that MI & PBKS doesn't win their remaining matches. If MI wins all three remaining matches, Mumbai Indians will qualify, and KKR will crash out.

KKR has to lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) – and they need to win two remaining games to qualify for the IPL Playoffs berth.

Mumbai Indians (MI) – Win 3 out of 3 Match: The defending champions Mumbai Indians are back in the IPL Playoff contest after beating PBKS. They defeated PBKS to jump to 5th place in IPL 2021 Points Table.

To qualify for the Playoffs, MI needs to win all three matches. Their NRR is inferior to KKR and others, and it will be safer for them to win all three games and qualify for playoffs in style. Otherwise, even two wins from 3 matches might get them a playoff place. MI has to face and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Rajasthan Royals (RR), and Delhi Capitals (DC) in the remaining matches.

Punjab Kings (PBKS) – 2 Victories of 2 Remaining Matches: The perennial under-performer of IPL, Punjab Kings, is placed at No. 5 position in the IPL Points Table. They have 10 points from 12 matches & a playoff spot is once again in sight.

What they need to Qualify

Win both remaining matches
Would need KKR, MI to lose a minimum of one game each if PBKS has to qualify

In the remaining matches, PBKS will face: Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)

Rajasthan Royals (RR) – 3 Wins in 3 Matches: RR is in big trouble after losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Now they are in Do or die position. They will now have to win all three games to qualify for playoffs & will hope other results go in their favor.

They have matches lined up against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Mumbai Indians (MI), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)

SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) – SRH is out of IPL Playoff Race
