Explained: How SRH Can Still Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs.

SRH is currently on four points from 10 games at the moment at bottom of the points table and the Kane Williamson-led side did look good in the previous game.

How SRH Can Still Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs:
SRH might not be able to qualify for the playoffs despite just winning all their remaining games. They will need some help from the likes of MI, KKR, PBKS, and RR if they have to make it to the playoffs. For SRH to qualify, two conditions will have to take place and the primary one is SRH should win all their remaining games in IPL 2021. Even if they lose one game, they will be out of the race for the playoffs.
SRH after winning all their remaining games will be hoping that the other results also go their way. The second condition will be for MI, KKR, and PBKS, and RR to win just one game from their remaining games. If the primary one and the second condition take place, then SRH will make the playoffs without depending on the net run rate.
SRH will be ideally qualified as the fourth-placed team from the points table with 12 points if those two conditions take place, and the other teams qualifying with the side would be Delhi, Chennai, and RCB as the top three sides. SRH do not have much time to regroup and they will have to be on their toes from their next games.
