Explained: How PBKS Can Still Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs. Punjab Kings would have been praying for the Royal Challengers Bangalore to win yesterday’s fixture in IPL 2021 against Rajasthan Royals and the KL Rahul led-side had their result in their way. However, it’s just one game that has gone their way and they will need plenty of results to go their way from here on.

Also, they will have to be very careful about their net run rate which might decide the fourth spot in the points table. They are currently at the sixth position with 8 points from 11 games and Punjab’s loss in the previous game to Mumbai Indians has to be dealt with quickly. Here is how PKBS can still qualify for IPL 2021 playoffs.

How PBKS Can Still Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs:

Punjab Kings will have their work cut out clearly if they have to make it to the IPL 2021 playoffs from here on. They have some tough matches coming up and they cannot afford to lose any of those games if they have to stay in contention. The maximum number of points they can reach from here is 14 which makes their case even tougher to qualify.

The only possible way for Punjab Kings will be to win all their three remaining games at first as it will keep them in the race for the playoff spot. But it won’t be easy as their next fixtures will be up against KKR, CSK, and RCB. They will also have to win two games of these games at a bigger margin so that their net run rate gets better.

Also, they will have to hope that RR, KKR, and MI lose at least two of their remaining games and it could give them a breather possibly. The chances of Punjab making the playoffs look very tough at the moment and they will have to find the momentum going soon. Their next fixture will be up against the KKR side tomorrow and it will be a very important game for the side.
