Sunrisers Hyderabad won in the end and kept their playoff chances alive. Batting first in the match, Hyderabad scored 193, and Mumbai Indians came very close but could not win. Mumbai’s innings halted at 190 and lost the match by 3 runs.
Now, what is the math of the playoffs? (IPL playoff count)
Sunrisers Hyderabad has kept themselves alive to reach the playoffs with a win in this match. Sunrisers Hyderabad has 12 points from 13 matches with 6 wins and 7 losses. There are now three teams in the points table, each with 12 points. But the problem for Sunrisers Hyderabad is that they have the lowest net run rate. If teams from Kolkata, and Punjab lose by a huge margin and Hyderabad wins their next match by a huge margin, some astonishing net-run rates can take Hyderabad to the playoffs.
So far only the team Gujarat Titans has been able to officially qualify for the playoffs, for the remaining three places, there is a competition between several teams. The team of Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants are at number two-third with 16-16 points and both of them are absolutely certain to reach the playoffs. In such a situation, there is such a place left that is claimed by many teams. Right now at number four is Delhi Capitals, who have to play their next match against Mumbai Indians.
If Delhi Capitals win that match then they can reach the playoffs. But before that, there is a match between Royal Challengers Bangalore-Gujarat Titans, here if RCB loses then it can be out of the tournament. If she wins, she can reach the playoffs. Delhi-Bengaluru has 14-14 points but RCB’s net run rate is minus.
