IPL 2022 Playoffs Qualification Scenarios for all teams ahead of PBKS vs DC match

The race to the IPL 2022 knockout is underway and night after night, the competition is getting fiercer and fiercer. Three teams, namely Gujarat Titans (GT), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) know their fate in advance.

While the Titans are guaranteed to finish in first place, CSK and MI are vying for the wooden spoon at the bottom of the scoreboard. The remaining seven teams are competing for the remaining three spots in the knockout round.

Ahead of the pivotal game between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Delhi Capitals (DC) on May 16, here’s a look at the qualifying scenario for all seven teams.


How do Kolkata Knight Riders qualify for the IPL 2022 knockout?

KKR Playoff Scenario (Actual): If DC wins Tonight: – KKR wins Lucknow.- Gujarat wins RCB.- MI wins DC.If Punjab wins: – KKR wins Lucknow.- Gujarat wins RCB.- SRH wins Punjab. – SKSS / STD beating MI would be good, but not necessary when SRH’s low NRR.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) is currently 6th in the standings with 12 points after 13 matches. They can get a maximum of 14 points. Kolkata’s final match is against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) on Wednesday, May 18.

If KKR loses to LSG, they will be disqualified from the competition. If KKR wins, they’ll have to hope that the Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings don’t win more than one of their two remaining matches and the Gujarat Titans also beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).


How does SunRisers Hyderabad qualify for the IPL 2022 knockout?

SRH Playoff Scenario (Actual): – SRH beat MI, PBKS.- LSG beat KKR or KKR to win by low score.- GT beat RCB. If DC wins Tonight: – MI beats DC.If Punjab wins: – SRH to beat Punjab with VERY high profit. Final result – RCB, SRH, PBKS, DC, KKR = 14 points.

SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) is 8th in the table with 10 points after 12 matches. The first condition to qualify is that they have to beat the Mumbai Indians on May 17 and then beat the Punjab Kings on May 22.

If they win both matches, they will have to hope that the Delhi Capitals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders have 14 points each. The team with the best net run rate will progress.


How does Royal Challengers Bangalore qualify for the IPL 2022 knockout?

RCB Playoff Scenario (Reality): If Delhi Wins Tonight: – The Indians of Mumbai beat the Capital Delhi. – RCB wins Gujarat. If Punjab wins: – RCB wins Gujarat. – SRH beat Punjab.

Royal Challengers Bangalore is in a must-win situation against the scorer of the Gujarat Titans. RCB is currently in 4th place with 14 points after 13 matches.

If they win GT, they will have to hope that neither the Delhi Capitals nor the Punjab Kings win both of their remaining matches. In the event that RCB loses, their chances of qualifying will be very low.


How can Rajasthan Royals qualify for IPL 2022 knockout?

Rajasthan Royals (RR) ranked second with 16 points from 13 games. Victory over Chennai Super Kings on May 20 in the final match of the tournament will secure them a spot in the knockout stages.

In the event that RR loses, they will have to hope that the Lucknow Super Giants lose to the Kolkata Knight Riders or the Delhi Capitals and the Punjab Kings lose at least one of their remaining two matches.


How do Lucknow Super Giants qualify for IPL 2022 knockout?

A few days ago, the Lucknow Super Giants looked like a top contender, but now they have to win their last match against KKR to secure a spot in the knockout stages.

A win in that match would be enough for LSG to qualify. If they must concede a defeat, they will have to hope the Rajasthan Royals lose by a big margin, the Royal Challengers Bangalore bite the dust, or the Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings lose at least one of their remaining two matches.


How does Delhi Capital qualify for IPL 2022 knockout?

The remaining two matches of Delhi Capitals are against Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians. If they win both matches, they will advance to the knockout round.

A failure in either game will reduce their chances. In the event that DC loses both remaining matches, they will be disqualified from the competition.

Talking about the DC win scenario, they will have hope that Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings don’t finish with more than 14 points and the actual run rates of both Kolkata Knight Riders and SunRisers Hyderabad are inferior to DC.


How do Punjab Kings qualify for IPL 2022 knockout?

Punjab Kings has a similar qualification scenario as Delhi Capitals. Winning in the last two matches is enough for PBKS to have a place in the next round.

If PBKS wins a game, they will have to hope that they have the best net run rate of any team finishing above 14 points, plus RCB and DC do not finish with more than 14 points. Like DC, if PBKS loses both games, they will be eliminated.
