Check Out The 4 Major Points Offering Attention To The Race For the Best Position On Wednesday When SRH succeeded to Beat RCB:
- It would be best for RCB to go for a tie to grab the second position. However, this is possible only when they are able to bear DC in the final game. For this, CSK has to lose to the PBKS. This eventually means that such a result would end up getting the third position as the total run rate of CSK is way more than they have.
- DC is however assured that they will be trying to get the top spot. In their game with RCB which is the last game, they will be able to occult their own slot. Even when they lose with RCB, they can still grab the top spot only when CSK loses to PBKS. However, if they don’t win to RCB and PBKS loses with CSK, they can be able to go for the tie to the first spot.
- It would be great if CSK go for a tie with DC but winning in order to get the first spot on their very last game keeping the hope right that RCB wins when played with DC. In case that does not happen, they will be able to get the second position without making a tie or for second with the RCB team. However, even when they tie, they would find them scoring to second place which is much ahead of RCB on the NRR.
- To be on the realistic side, CSK and DC have been performing really well to get the top two positions. The end league with end up RCB to settle for the third spot.
