Rain often spoils the game of teams in cricket. But due to that rain of May 3, now both Chennai and Lucknow can reach the playoffs. The 1-1 points distributed there are now proving to be a bonus for them in the race for the playoffs.
Today in IPL 2023, both CSK and LSG will be in the field. CSK will face Delhi Capitals. At the same time, the challenge of KKR will be in front of LSG. CSK and LSG teams will reach the playoffs only by winning both these matches. Because after winning here, both will have 17-17 points in the points table.

But, if this does not happen means that both the teams lose their respective matches, then also a team with a better run rate will go to the playoffs. On the other hand, if one team wins and the other team loses, then the winner will get the playoff ticket. While the loser will have to hope that one of the teams from Mumbai and RCB lose their last match.
CSK will reach the playoffs for the 12th time!
