No team has officially confirmed their top four finish in the IPL 2019 even after all the eight teams featuring at least ten matches. The defending champions Chennai Super Kings are the nearest of the eight, having won eight of the 11 matches they played. Both Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore settled in the bottom two places since the first week of the tournament. They are the teams with least chances of ending up with a playoff spot as they won only three out of ten matches thus far.

With their 8th win of the season on Tuesday, the Chennai Super Kings more or less confirmed their final four finish. A win will confirm CSK’s final four finish and even a top two finish. Considering the upcoming fixtures, as many as five teams are in a chance of ending up with eight wins or more wins from here on. CSK might end up falling short if they lose all their remaining three matches. This might happen if the other team results come up with couple of wins.

Their net run rate of 0.091 is 4th best among all teams after playing 11 matches and the 2nd worst among the teams who have a chance of finishing with eight wins. Delhi Capitals have the best chance to trump CSK and so does Mumbai Indians. Two out of SRH, KXIP and KKR also are in queue to finish with 16 points. KKR has the least chance given their last three matches are against MI and KXIP.
