Big win for KKR- As things stand the 54-run win against SRH has kept KKR in the running for a place in the playoffs. Shreyas Iyer’s team can still reach the playoff and also have a positive NRR which gives them the edge. They next play Lucknow Super Giants and a win will give them a good chance of qualifying, but a defeat will see them get eliminated. Also they will have to hope for defeats for RR and RCB in their remaining matches.

Playoff Scenario for KKR –

  • Both or one of RR and RCB should lose their remaining matches and end with 14 points and KKR should have better net run rate than RR (KKR already are better in NRR than RCB)
  • DC should lose one or both matches and end with 14 points or less, if they end with 14 points KKR must win their LSG match by big margin to overtake DC in NRR
  • With PBKS and SRH going head-to-head one will get directly eliminated, but whoever wins should lose their other encounter or end with poor NRR than KKR
  • Interestingly KKR can still finish third if certain set of results go their way

Remaining games –

KKR vs LSG, Wednesday, 18th May
