With 14 points in the rankings, Rajasthan and Bangalore are ranked third and fourth, respectively. Rajasthan Royals have two games remaining against Lucknow and Chennai, while Bangalore has one more game against Gujarat Titans. KKR would like both Bangalore and Rajasthan to lose their games.
Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings are both capable of scoring 16 points, and they will play each other in the tournament. As a result, the outcomes in Delhi and Punjab will be crucial.
So, assuming all of the other outcomes fall in the Knight Riders’ favour, they may secure a playoff berth with 14 points, which will trigger the NRR.
