CSK despite winning seven out of thirteen games in the IPL 2023, haven't confirmed their spot in playoffs with 15 points in their kitty. CSK, unfortunately, went on to lose their last home game at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai as their batters got bamboozled by Kolkata spinners like Sunil Narine (2/15) and Varun Chakravarthy (2/36).
Now the question for all fans is, can CSK get eliminated as they haven't officially qualified for the playoffs in IPL 2023?
Here we will see how CSK can get eliminated if they stay at only 15 points.
Remaining schedule in IPL 2023:
DC vs CSK in Delhi, 20th May
KKR vs LSG in Kolkata, 20th May
MI vs SRH in Mumbai, 21st May
RCB vs GT in Bengaluru, 21st May
Now, if CSK loses their last league game of IPL 2023 against DC then they would stay at 15 points only.
GT already stays ahead of CSK by having 18 points in the table
LSG can reach a maximum of 17 points in the IPL 2023 table if they beat KKR.
MI and RCB can get a maximum of 16 points in the table if they win their last league game of IPL 2023.
We assume LSG, MI, RCB & PBKS to win all their last match of the IPL 2023 and reach 17, 16, and 16 points respectively.
Thus CSK can get eliminated if:
- CSK lose their last match against DC
- LSG, MI & RCB win their last match of IPL 2023.
The points table of IPL 2023 will look like this, if the above four results happen:
GT - 18
LSG - 17
RCB - 16
MI - 16
CSK - 15
RR - 14
KKR - 12
PBKS - 12
DC - 12
SRH - 8
