KKR defeated Rajasthan Royals in their last match of the IPL 2020 league phase, and are currently fourth in the table. Their qualification chances still hang by the thread, and depends on SunRisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) result vs Mumbai Indians (MI). SRH need to lose to MI, then KKR are through to the playoffs, irrespective of the result between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Capitals (DC).
If SRH defeat MI, KKR’s chances depend on net run-rate, and they are currently at -0.214.
