The Chennai Super Kings have suffered a loss in their Sunday match against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Performing at home creates extra power in the player’s mind, as Captain Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh hit a half-century in the limited-over match on May 14.
The Chennai Super Eagles had already finished playing 13 games, out of which they had scored 15 points with a unique net run rate of 0.381. And to qualify for the playoffs, they must dominate the game against the Delhi Capitals.
The last game of the yellow team before the playoffs will be held on May 20 against the Delhi Capitals at Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium. But things are not over here, as CSK also needs to depend on the game results of the other opposition in the ongoing cricket tournament.
There were many teams in a race to qualify for the playoffs, but under the top four, GT and MI are the teams that can stop MS Dhoni and co. from being eligible for the playoffs. Gujarat Titans, the top team, already had 16 points, and the Mumbai side had created 12 points in the ongoing season’s match. The CSK team was also worried about RCB, who are in form to improve their position in the tournament by winning the last two games of 20-over. Hopefully, the Chennai Kings can get placed in the playoffs of the IPL in 2023.
