Lucknow reached top-3 after defeating Mumbai, playoff race became very exciting

LSG vs MI, IPL 2023 Points Table: Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) kept alive their hopes of reaching the playoffs with a close 5-run win against Mumbai Indians (MI). Lucknow is now third in the points table with 15 points after 7 wins in 13 league matches. Now if they win their last league match, then their place in the playoffs will be considered completely confirmed. The Lucknow team currently has a net run rate of 0.304.

Mumbai Indians have definitely suffered some loss due to the defeat in this match. Now the team has reached the fourth position in the points table with 14 points after 13 matches. Now if Mumbai faces defeat in their last league match, then they may also miss out on securing their place in the playoffs.

Chennai will have to win in their last league match

Currently, Chennai Super Kings, who are in second place with 15 points in the points table, need to win the last league match to secure their place in the playoffs. Chennai Super Kings have to play their last league match against Delhi Capitals on May 20 and if they face defeat in this, then they may also miss out on making a place in the playoffs.

RCB will have to win their last two league matches

After Lucknow’s win against Mumbai, now the road to the playoffs has become a bit difficult for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Currently, RCB is at 5th position in the points table with 6 wins and 6 losses in 12 matches. The team has yet to play 2 league matches and after winning both of these, they can secure their place in the playoffs. But now the team will have to depend on the results of other matches as well.

Punjab still has a chance, Rajasthan and Kolkata almost out of playoff race

The team of Punjab Kings still remains in the playoff race. Punjab is currently at 8th position in the points table with 6 wins in 12 matches. If Punjab manages to win their last 2 league matches, then they will finish on 16 points and in such a situation they can secure their place for the playoffs. However, they will have to depend on the results of other matches as well.

For the Rajasthan Royals, who reached the finals of last season, it is now looking very difficult to make a place in the playoffs. Rajasthan currently has 12 points in 13 matches and after winning the last match, they will be able to reach only 14 points. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders are in a similar situation, who still have 12 points after 13 matches.
