MI and CSK are out of the playoffs race while KKR, PBKS, SRH, DC, RCB and RR are fighting for the two spots in the final four. LSG and GT are almost confirmed to make it to the playoffs. DC need to win at least three out of their remaining four matches while SRH have the same equation now.
Delhi capitals opener David Warner entered the top five of Orange Cap race with his unbeaten 92 runs knock against Sunrisers Hyderabad. RR’s Jos Buttler is way ahead of everyone with 588 runs to his name, followed by LSG’s KL Rahul, PBKS’ Shikhar Dhawan, Warner and SRH’s Abhishek Sharma. It will be a race between Rahul and Buttler unless someone pulls a rabbit out of the hat.
DC’s Kuldeep Yadav could claim just one wicket in the match against SRH which minimized the gap between him and RR’s Yuzvendra Chahal but still keeps him at number two in the Purple Cap race. Kuldeep is now just one wicket behind Chahal. PBKS’ Kagiso Rabad, SRH’s T Natarajan and RCB’s Wanindu Hasaranga are next on the list.
