Only 6 matches are remaining in the IPL 2018 right now. Already 2 teams have got qualified for the playoffs while the rest of the teams are working on securing their positions to enter the playoffs.
Remaining 6 Match Fixtures
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)
Points: 14 NRR: -0.091
After the previous match win against Rajasthan Royals, they have moved up in the table and is closer to the playoffs. The last match for them is up against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their homeland. The KKR has to win this for sure or else they will be pushed into a state where their progress will be determined based on others results. Even though they have tied up with 14 points their NRR is still on the negative side.
Mumbai Indians (MI)
Points: 12 NRR: +0.384
A series of the losses at the league’s initial phase has made the defending champions still remain in the middle of the points table. But still, they’ve got it right in their own hands as luckily their NRR of +0.384 is superior to others. However, winning the upcoming match will take them into the lead in the points table if they can afford it.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Points: 12 NRR: -0.403
After the loss against KKR, their NRR has even gone deep down in the negative side from -0.347 to -0.403. Even if they win their next match up again RCB on Saturday and get tied up in the 4th place with 14 points, they still need a massive boost to their NRR in order to grab a chance into the playoffs.
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)
Points: 12 NRR: -0.490
After winning five out of 6 matches in the first half of the season they spent quite a time at the top of the table. However, the tables got turned when they could only one win from their next seven matches. This not only lowered them on the points table but also took its toll in their NRR which is currently at a negative -0.490. They are in need of an extreme boost to claim the place which they have lost and get into the playoffs.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)
Points: 10 NRR: +0.218
The best that RCB can do right now is to win the upcoming two matches and get 14 points so that they can tie up with the others at the 3rd & 5th place. If the wind favors and they continue to keep up their positive NRR, they too got a chance to go into the playoffs. Everything will be decided when they face off against SRH.
