In that case, Knight Riders will finish with 14 points, Royals and Kings XI with 12 each and SRH on 10/12 depending on how many wins and Knight Riders go ahead on 14 points without NRR coming into play. Also, thanks to their excellent NRR, it is nearly certain that they will also finish in the top two.

If Kings XI lose both their remaining matches, they stand eliminated. "They haven't really lost a game since he's been there, so now Rajasthan Royals, they need to win and for that to happen, they will have to figure out a game plan to stop Gayle and say, and not just one, they might need a couple of them because when he gets going, of course, he's a tornado, who just blows away the opposition", Chopra said. While two wins will definitely take them into the playoffs - they could even finish among the top two - even with 14 points they now have a better chance of making the cut because their NRR of -0.049 is much better than that of the Knight Riders and the Royals - two of the other teams which can finish on 14. The remaining six teams will be separated by just two points. However, Royals are now on 10 points - their NRR will improve if they win two matches. Like RCB, Capitals can go through even with two losses, if a host of other results come their way and the defeats don't cause a big dent on their NRR. "Well Kings XI are a strong team, there is no doubt about that".

The victor and loser of the match will suffer contrasting fortunes which will also impact other teams.

If it does come down to NRR, the only team they can compete with are the Royals, who are now on -0.505 compared to Knight Riders' -0.467.

Chennai Super Kings' last-ball win is a bad result for Kolkata Knight Riders, but it is excellent news for the other teams who are vying for one of the three spots that are still up for grabs.

So for five teams, they will be praying that Kings XI Punjab's five-game winning streak ends today while KL Rahul would be aiming to provide more heartbreak and tension to the other sides as they continue with their resurgence.

There's an important link between vitamin D and coronavirus
Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to health concerns including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and multiple sclerosis. Researchers also say coronavirus patients with low vitamin D levels had more inflammatory biomarkers in their blood.

However, losing both games will affect their NRR, which could result in their elimination if other teams on 14 have higher run rates.

Sunrisers leapfrogged Rajasthan Royals to the sixth position in the points table with their massive 88-run win over Capitals. SRH's NRR is +0.396 - which is the highest among all teams barring Mumbai. The win by Kings XI Punjab will also make Sunrisers Hyderabad's last two games a must-win.

The Royals have a poor NRR of -0.505, so their best bet for qualification will be if they don't get into a run-rate tussle with the other teams.

For the Sunrisers, the equation is simple: win their two remaining games, and hope that at least one out of Royal Challengers, Delhi Capitals and Kings XI don't reach 16.

Royal Challengers will qualify if they win one of their two remaining matches.
