However, Hyderabad has two more matches, winning which they can match KKR.
What are the playoff equations for the rest of the teams?
RCB, Delhi and Punjab can win all their remaining matches and reach 16 points. So far only Gujarat Titans have qualified for the playoffs. The rest of the teams are still engaged in the race. Apart from Gujarat, Lucknow has won eight matches out of 12 this season. It is very easy for Lucknow to reach the playoffs, as Punjab, RCB and Delhi will be able to win all the remaining matches and get 16 points. Lucknow already has 16 points. Lucknow is just one match away from cementing its place in the playoffs.
Everyone has more chances except Hyderabad
Hyderabad has won only five out of 12 matches so far. If the remaining 2 matches are also won, then the story of Hyderabad will be stuck on the fact that, if the other teams lose, they cannot get 16 points, only then can there be any chance of Hyderabad.
Delhi, RCB and Punjab have more opportunities
Delhi, RCB and Punjab can win all their matches and get 16 points. On the other hand, talking about RCB, their next and last match is against Gujarat Titans. RCB will have to win this match by a huge margin, so that later, if it is decided on the basis of run rate, then RCB can easily qualify.
