If you look at the list of teams that have a chance to reach the playoffs in the IPL 2020 season ..? Mumbai Indians, who have won 11 matches, remain at No. 1 in the table with 14 points, followed by Delhi Capitals (14 points), Royal Challengers Bangalore (14) and Kings XI Punjab (12). Kolkata Knight Riders (12), Rajasthan Royals (10) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (8), who are in 5th, 6th and 7th positions, are still in the playoff race.
Only one of the top three teams in the points table, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore, has a chance of scoring 20 points. Even if one of the three teams gets that 20 point mark, the other two teams will not have that chance. Because ..? Mumbai vs Bangalore (28th), Delhi vs Mumbai (31st) and Delhi vs Bangalore (November 2nd) will meet at the end of the league stage. However, these three teams will advance to the playoffs if they win at least one of the remaining three matches. So .. there is nothing wrong with these teams.
The actual competition for the final berth of the playoffs is now about to begin. While Punjab and Kolkata have a chance to score 16 points at present, Rajasthan and Hyderabad have a good chance of scoring only 14 points in the rest of the race. If Rajasthan wins the remaining two matches ..? The team has a 3% chance of qualifying for the playoffs. The net run rate of -0.505 is also showing signs of hurting the team. And if Hyderabad wins the remaining three matches ..? The chances of that team reaching the playoffs are only 7%. There is a chance that it will also have a net run rate of +0.029. So .. Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore are almost certain to qualify for the playoffs .. Punjab or Kolkata is likely to get the final berth.
