IPL Playoff Qualification Scenarios 2022- Team-Wise Scenarios

Here are some of the qualifications scenarios for the seven teams still in the fray, out of which some are more favourable than others-

IPL Qualification Scenarios LSG

The new team Lucknow Super Giants is most likely to qualify for the IPL Playoffs 2022, as it currently has 16 points from 12 matches, the second highest number of points on the IPL Points Table 2022 after the Gujarat Titans. If LSG manages to win even one of its next two matches, then it will qualify for the playoffs. 

LSG’s next two matches- 

LSG vs RR, May 15th 
KKR vs LSG, May 18th

IPL Qualification Scenarios RCB

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) also stands a good chance to qualify for the IPL Playoffs provided it wins its next two matches, one of which is today. RCB is currently ranked 4th in the IPL Points Table 2022 with 14 points from 12 matches. 

RCB’s next two matches- 

RCB vs PBKS, May 13th
RCB vs GT, , May 19th

IPL Qualification Scenarios RR

Rajasthan Royals, which is currently ranked third on the IPL Points Table 2022 with 14 points in 12 matches, will have to win both its remaining matches to qualify for the IPL Playoffs. 

RR’s next two matches-

LSG vs RR, May 15th
RR vs CSK, May 20th

IPL Qualification Scenarios DC

Delhi Capitals will have to win its next two matches and hope for either RR or RCB to lose one of their next matches. Otherwise all will end up with the same number of points and then it will come down to the team’s net run rate. The advantage for DC is that it has a better net run rate than at least four teams- RCB, KKR, PBKS and SRH so if it comes down to it, they will have an upper hand. 

DC’s next two matches- 

PBKS vs DC, May 16th

MI vs DC, May 21st

IPL Qualification Scenarios SRH

The Sunrisers Hyderabad currently have 10 points from 11 matches and are yet to play three matches. If the team manages to win all three of their remaining matches, they stand a good chance at qualifying for the IPL Playoffs. 

SRH Remaining IPL Matches

KKR vs SRH, May 14th

MI vs SRH, May 17th

SRH vs PBKS, May 22

IPL Qualification Scenarios PBKS

The IPL Playoff qualification scenario of PBKS is similar to Sunrisers Hyderabad as it also has 10 points from 11 matches, with three matches still to play. Punjab Kings will have to win all three of their remaining IPL matches to keep their playoff hopes alive.

PBKS Next IPL matches

RCB vs PBKS at 7.30 today, May 13th
PBKS vs DC, May 16th
SRH vs PBKS, May 22

IPL Qualification Scenarios KKR

KKR currently has 10 points from 12 matches and would need close to a miracle to qualify for the IPL Playoffs 2022. The team that began this season on a high note with a win over the defending champions CSK are struggling to reserve their place in the knockouts. Even if they win next two matches, they will have 14 points. So in order for them to qualify, both RR and RCB have to lose both of their next matches and DC should lose at least one match. KKR’s IPL Playoff qualification scenario depends mostly on the result of other group-stage matches. 

KKR’s next matches

KKR vs SRH, May 14th 
KKR vs LSG, May 18th
