Mumbai: So far 64 matches have been played in IPL 2022 and still the picture of the playoffs is not clear. Only the new team Gujarat Titans has been able to cement its place in the playoffs of IPL 2022 only. For the remaining three places, there is still a tough competition between 7 teams (Qualify for Playoffs in IPL 2022). Delhi has now reached the top-4 after defeating Punjab Kings by 17 runs .

Delhi Capitals have 14 points from 13 matches with 7 wins. Delhi now also have to enter the next match against Mumbai Indians, which will take them to 16 points and be in a good position for the playoffs. Delhi’s net run rate plus has become 0.255.

Lucknow Super Giants
Lucknow Super Giants have lost in the last two matches. This prevented the team from going to the playoffs. LSG currently have 16 points, the team is in good position but their playoff ticket is not confirmed. The team will now have to win the next match against Kolkata Knight Riders in any case.
