Chennai Super Kings take steps towards play-offs… return to top 4

highlights

Chennai Super Kings have 12 points in 11 matches. CSK has moved up from 5th to 3rd place

New Delhi. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) boosted their hopes of reaching the play-offs by beating Punjab Kings by 28 runs in the T20 match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday. CSK tasted victory after five consecutive defeats against Punjab. CSK, after being invited to bat first, scored 167 runs for 9 wickets and then avenged the defeat against the team four days ago by restricting Punjab’s innings to 139 runs for 9 wickets. CSK returned to the top 4 of the points table after their sixth win in eleven matches, while Punjab’s hopes of reaching the play-offs suffered a major blow after their seventh defeat in eleven matches.

Chennai Super Kings can qualify for the play-offs by winning two of the remaining three matches. Chennai have to play their next match at home against Rajasthan Royals, who will be difficult to beat in Chepauk. The Rajasthan team has world-class spinners in which R Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal feature prominently. With the win against Punjab, Chennai has risen from fifth to third place in the points table. Even if Chennai Super Kings lose the match against Rajasthan Royals, it still has a chance to reach the play-offs.

The decision is then made at Netrunrate
Two out of three wins are enough for CSK to qualify. If Chennai loses two out of three matches, it will be difficult to enter the play-offs with 14 points. In such a situation, many teams will have equal points in third and fourth place. After this, the case remains hanging on the internet. The team that has a better net run rate qualifies for the play-offs. Currently, Chennai Super Kings have reached a better position.

Chennai took the field without three bowlers in the frontline
Chennai Super Kings currently do not have three frontline bowlers in their team. Mathisa Pathirana has returned home due to injury, while pacer Mustafizur Rahman has been out of the IPL to play the series against Zimbabwe for Bangladesh, while Deepak Chahar is also currently battling an injury. Ravindra Jadeja performed all-round in the match against Punjab. Batting first, he scored 43 runs off 26 balls while taking 3 wickets while bowling.
