Rajasthan Royals – If the Kings XI beat the Knight Riders and then both the teams lose their last two games, Rajasthan Royals can qualify without net run rate coming into play as they will reach 14 points, whereas the Kings XI and the Knight Riders will have 12.
If the Kings XI or the Sunrisers manage to reach 14, the Royals then will only have a very slim chance to make the final four on net run rate, as theirs is a poor -0.505. The only team’s NRR they can possibly match is the Knight Riders’ (-0.476), so they will hope to compete only with the Knight Riders for that fourth spot. So Royals would want a KXIP win today.
Sunrisers Hyderabad – The most precariously placed team. SRH needs win in all 3 matches against DC, RCB and MI and still would have to be dependent on other results. They would also want that KXIP wins today against KKR.
Chennai Super Kings : They have already dropped out of the IPL 2020 Playoff Race
