Explained: How DC Can Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs. Delhi Capitals have lost their previous game against the Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021 UAE phase but will be happy that they faced the challenge before the playoffs. So far, they have been dominating the sides and winning games comprehensively which should definitely be enough to make the playoffs.

But, Delhi will look to hold on to the top two slots as RCB has started to gain some momentum. The Delhi Capitals are currently on 16 points from 11 games and have a pretty good net run rate as well to make the top four. The return of Shreyas Iyer to the side has brought a lot of solidity at the top and he has been scoring loads of runs in the last few years. Here is how DC can qualify for IPL 2021 playoffs.

How DC Can Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs

DC’s run rate will be enough at the moment for them to make the playoffs with 16 points but if they manage to lose all their remaining games, then KKR might move to the second place given that Eoin Morgans side wins all their respective games. That could become very complicated for the DC side and they will prefer to keep winning which will certainly put them in the first two slots.

Delhi has some interesting games coming up in the next few days and they will be up against the MI, CSK, and RCB who all have a strong team. DC’s current net run rate is 0.562 and only KKR are closer to achieving above Delhi’s run rate in the next few games. The Rishabh Pant-led side has had some injury concerns and they would have to address them before the next game.

Delhi’s next assignment will be against the defending champions Mumbai Indians on the 2nd of October and it will be an afternoon game at the Sharjah stadium.
