IPL 2022: The 15th season of IPL has not been special for last year’s winner Chennai Super Kings. Before the start of the tournament, Mahendra Singh Dhoni left the captaincy of Chennai. After this the responsibility of leadership was handed over to Ravindra Jadeja, which he could not handle and Dhoni again took over the command of CSK. After Mahi’s return, Chennai beat Hyderabad by 13 runs. Chennai has four more matches to play, if they win all the matches and the performance of other teams is favorable to them, then Mahi’s team can reach the playoff again.
9th place in the points table
Chennai are currently at the ninth position in the points table with three wins from 10 matches. The condition is that they will have to win their remaining four matches by a huge margin, which will increase their maximum to 14 points and the net run rate will also improve. Despite winning three out of 10 matches, Chennai’s net run rate is in the negative (-0.431). If the four-time champion team wins the remaining four matches by a huge margin, then its hopes of going to the playoffs will be alive. The team that has scored 14 points many times in IPL history has reached the playoffs. Mumbai Indians are officially out of the race for the playoffs.
CSK have 4 matches to play now
Chennai’s next four matches are against Delhi Capitals on Sunday, Mumbai Indians on Thursday, Gujarat Titans on May 15 and Rajasthan Royals on May 20. Apart from their excellent performance in their matches, Chennai will also have to keep an eye on the performance of other teams. KKR have eight points from 10 matches ahead of Chennai. Punjab Kings have 10 points in 10 matches, Sunrisers Hyderabad have 10 points in 10 matches and Delhi Capitals have 10 points in 10 matches. RCB, which are in the top four, have 12 points from 11 matches, Rajasthan Royals have 12 points from 10 matches, Lucknow Super Giants have 14 points from 10 matches and Gujarat Titans have 16 points from 11 matches.
Luck will also be needed
For CSK to reach the playoffs, they must have won all their matches. Along with this, he will also need the help of RCB for this. Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings will face defeat in at least two of their remaining three matches. Chennai mathematically still remains in the tournament.
