One team’s ticket will be confirmed
Everyone’s eyes are on the match between Rajasthan and Delhi. If Sanju Samson’s team wins this match, it will leave Kolkata behind and reach the top again. Not only this, once Rajasthan reaches 18 points, it will also become the first team to make it to the playoffs. So far this season no team has been able to reach 18 points.

Which teams are in the race for 3rd place?
If Rajasthan becomes the first team to make it to the playoffs, then only 3 more places will be left after this. It is almost certain that Kolkata Knight Riders will reach the playoffs. Meaning, the real competition is only for two places because number two ranked Kolkata has 16 points while the bottom three teams have only 12 points each. There will be a competition between the teams of Chennai, Hyderabad and Lucknow to get the last two places. These three teams have equal number of matches and the points are also equal.
