According to the point table rules, each team would get 2 points while winning the match. While the tournament is in its halfway Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Kolkata Knight Riders hold the top four positions in the IPL 2020 points table.
Ajit Agarkar Predicts teams to enter the playoff
Ajit Agarkar makes the prediction on the basis of the players form and mental strength while playing the matches. Agarkar points out that the top three teams in the points table would get into the playoffs as they sealed the safest position.
“It’s such a close tournament, so many ups, and downs, but clearly Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals look like the two best teams – form-wise and personnel-wise. KKR, in my opinion, got a real bonus win against CSK. They are my third team,” Agarkar said in the Star Sports show ‘Cricket Connected.’
According to Agarkar, the fourth team to enter the final four will be either Rajasthan Royals or Sunrisers Hyderabad. “The fourth team for me is between Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. I had CSK at the start of the tournament, but at the moment, these two teams look slightly better than what CSK is playing.
IPL teams fight to make it to the playoff
The fight to enter the playoff is still in heat as still there are chances for the last 3 teams of the points table to make into the playoff. Earlier the magic has been done by Dhoni-led CSK in IPL 2010 where CSK made it to playoff while at the same position as of now.
Though things were not in favour of CSK as they lose two key players before the beginning of the tournament CSK would bounce back to survive. CSK had a record of entering the playoff in every IPL it played so far.
