Royal Challengers Bangalore (Rank 2) RCB is almost through to the playoffs but, a defeat from the hands of Mumbai Indians could affect its plans of being in the top two. If Bangalore loses the remaining two matches, then it will have to hope that one of KKR or KXIP lose one of their remaining matches.


Delhi Capitals (Rank 3) After losing its previous three matches in a row and need two points from its remaining two games. If it loses both its matches, then DC’s qualification scenario will get tricky.


Kings XI Punjab (Rank 4) On a five-game win spree, if Punjab wins bot remaining matches then it has a good chance of qualifying. If KXIP loses a game, then it can still make to playoffs given KRR and SRH lose all their games.


Kolkata Knight Riders In a tricky situation as KKR has a poor net run rate if it doesn’t win both remaining matches and also hope for KXIP to drop points.


Sunrisers Hyderabad SRH needs to win both its remaining matches first and then hope for KXIP, KKR and RR to significantly underperform in fag end of IPL 2020.


Rajasthan Royals
  • Points: 10
  • Remaining matches: KXIP (Oct 30), KKR (Nov 1)
Almost out of the IPL 2020 playoffs race but mathematical chances remain. Need to win both its remaining matches first, and then hope other results go its way (top 3 team to win all the remaining matches). However, poor NRR may go against them.
