Undoubtedly, BRC are in do or die situation.They have to win both the games - one against leaders DD and the other against unpredictable DC.With 2 teams already out of the race, 4 teams are fighting for the 2 slots for semis- DC, KP, RR and BRC.
- DC and KP are left with 1 game in their hand and are tied at 14 points each.
- RR has 1 game left and are on 13 points.
- On the other hand BRC have 2 games left and are on 12 points.
Let's check the possibilities on how BRC can reach semis (assuming that no match is abandoned due to the rain !!!!!!)-
1.BRC wins both the games:
a)RR and KP win their respective games.
This will send KP and BRC into the semis.
b)KP loses the game, RR wins the game
This makes the way for BRC and RR to the semis.
c)RR loses the game and KP wins against CSK
BRC and KP will enter the semis with 16 points each.
2.BRC wins 1 game out of the two:
Even though they lose 1, they can still make it to semis if RR loses the game and KP loses the only match left for them.One more condition that should be satisfied is that the net-run-rate of BRC should be higher than that of DC.
Let's hope for the 1st case.Keep the fingers crossed!
