Explained: How KKR Can Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs

Kolkata Knight Riders after their win against Delhi Capitals will need a minimum of 2 wins from their remaining games. 14 points and a better net run rate would take them to the playoffs for sure. However, if they can win all their three remaining games, it will definitely rule out the chances for the other franchises in the mid-table.

Kolkata Knight Riders have got the most interesting fixtures coming up as all those games will be like a knockout game for the opponents of  SRH, PBKS, and RR. The good start to their UAE campaign with big margin wins has made it easy for them to qualify and they look the most probable side to finish at the number four position at the moment. They have to make sure that they don’t end up losing two of their last 3 games.

KKR will be the side that the other franchises will start to fear now as they have got the momentum going in their favour. Their top order has been firing and the youngsters have contributed a lot to the franchise already. Their next assignment will be up against the Punjab Kings tomorrow evening.
