In the next three rounds, MI still has two home games to play and is only one point back of second-place CSK, giving them a chance to lock up a playoff spot. The Gujarat Titans, Lucknow Super Giants, and Sunrisers Hyderabad are MI’s upcoming opponents in their next three games (May 12, May 16, and May 21). Lucknow Super Giants With 11 points after 11 games, Lucknow is now ranked fourth. The club will try to capitalize on its recent success and clinch a playoff spot in the remaining three games.

RR’s next three matches are on May 19 against Punjab Kings, May 14 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, and May 11 against Kolkata Knight Riders. Kolkata Knight Riders KKR moved into the center of the standings with a 10-point victory over PBKS. To stay in the postseason race, the team must win all three of its remaining games.

The next three games for KKR are on May 11 against Rajasthan Royals, May 14 against Chennai Super Kings, and May 20 against Lucknow Super Giants. Royal Challengers Banglore In the IPL 2023 points standings, RCB is in seventh position with 10 points from 11 games and a net run rate of -0.345.

The upcoming three games for RCB are on May 14 against the Rajasthan Royals, May 18 against Sunrisers Hyderabad, and May 21 against the Gujarat Titans. Punjab Kings Even though winning their next three games would give the Punjab Kings- a total of 16 points, that may not be enough. PBKS must continue to depend on the outcome of the opposing team’s match to win their games by a wide margin to increase their net run rate. The Delhi Capitals (May 13), Delhi Capitals (May 17), and Rajasthan Royals (May 19) are the subsequent three opponents for PBKS. Sunrisers Hyderabad Sunrisers Hyderabad still has four games left, as they must win them all to have a chance. After that, they should monitor the outcomes of the other teams. The Lucknow Super Giants on May 13, the Gujarat Titans on May 15, Royal Challengers Bangalore on May 18, and the Mumbai Indians on May 21 are the next four games for SRH. Delhi Capitals Despite being at the bottom of the IPL 2023 points standings, the Delhi Capitals can still make the playoffs provided they win all four- of their remaining games and receive help from other teams.
