The path to glory for the top four teams after the conclusion of the league matches
In total, the top four teams at the end of the tournaments will be playing against each other in four different matches before they get to lift the trophy. The chronological order of the four different games is Qualifier 1, Eliminator, Qualifier 2, and The Finals. The top two top teams in the points table will play the Qualifier 1.
Subsequently, the third and fourth teams in the points table will face each other in the Eliminator. After the conclusion of the Qualifier 1, the winning team will make it to the finals, and the losing team will face the winner of the Eliminator at Qualifier 2. Further, the winning teams of Qualifier 1 and Qualifier 2 will face each other in the finals, and eventually, the best team will be crowned champions of the IPL edition.
The most crucial column in the points table
All the columns can be straightforwardly depicted as per the chronological order of the events taking place. But, the Net Run Rate (NRR) table can perhaps be the game-changer, mostly when there is a cut-throat competition among all the eight participating teams. As the tournament progresses, the margin of victory will matter the most for every single team, as that’s what responsible for the fluctuation of NRR. Since the introduction of the NRR, it’s evident that the skippers of every team try to marshal their troops in a way so that they can produce a decent NRR, which will eventually enhance their possibility of being at the top four.
