Even though KKR and MI lose their matches, the chances for Punjab to enter the playoffs are slim due to their low net run rate. Meanwhile, MS Dhoni’s team will be hoping to consolidate their position at the second spot. Chennai have a better net run rate than the third-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and are set to confirm the second spot. (live scorecard)
