New Delhi. In IPL 2021, the fourth team of the playoff (IPL 2021 Playoffs) can be decided tonight. There are mainly 3 teams in the race for the playoffs, Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings. The team of Rajasthan Royals is almost out of this race. Despite this, the key to the fourth team of the playoff is visible with him. Rajasthan Royals, captained by Sanju Samson, will take on Kolkata Knight Riders on 7 October today.
Before the match of Rajasthan Kolkata (KKR vs RR), let’s understand the situation so far in the IPL. Till now all the teams have played 13-13 matches in IPL 2021. Delhi Capitals (20), Chennai Super Kings (18) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (16) are in the first three places. Kolkata Knight Riders (12) and Mumbai Indians (12) are leading the race for the fourth place. Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals have 10 points each. Sunrisers Hyderabad has won only 3 matches out of 13 and has only 6 points.
There are two matches in IPL 2021 today. The first match is between Chennai and Punjab. The second match is Kolkata vs Rajasthan. If Kolkata wins this match, then its place in the playoff will be almost decided. However, despite his win, Mumbai Indians will remain in the race for the playoffs, but it will also become extremely difficult. Even after Kolkata’s win, if Mumbai has to play the playoff, then it will have to beat Hyderabad by about 70 or more runs tomorrow or achieve the target within 10 overs.
On the other hand, if Rajasthan team defeats Kolkata, then the job of Mumbai Indians will be easy. Then he will only have to win his match against Hyderabad, the run rate will not be a problem. Not only this, if Rajasthan wins today, the team of Punjab will also be involved in the race to some extent. However, for this, he will not only have to win his match by a big margin, but will also have to pray for Kolkata’s big defeat. Overall, Punjab’s hope will be made only when Kolkata and Mumbai lose and they themselves register huge victories.
It is clear that the race for the fourth place in the playoffs will remain exciting only when the Rajasthan team beats Kolkata. If Kolkata wins, then only Mumbai will survive in this race and the path for that too will be as difficult as climbing the Himalayas.
