IPL Playoffs: How can DC Qualify for IPL 2022 Playoffs? Check Complete Scenarios

The Delhi Capitals lost their most recent game against Chennai Super Kings by a massive margin of 91 runs and that has dented their chances of qualifying for Indian Premier League 2022 playoffs. With a positive Net Run Rate of 0.150, the Rishabh Pant-led team is currently placed at the fifth spot on the points table. The Delhi Capitals have managed to win 5 out of their 11 matches this T20 season and now they desperately need to win all of their remaining three games against Rajasthan Royals, Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians to have a chance of qualification.

Requirement 1 DC will have to win all of their remaining matches against RR, PBKS and MI. They will also have to ensure that their Net Run Rate (0.150) remains positive and continues to increase.
Requirement 2 Delhi Capitals will hope that some other results go their way as they can finish with a maximum of 16 points.
