Facts-Play-offs

The DLF IPL 2011 has almost reached it’s 2nd phase: the knockout phase. The 4 teams that are in the play-offs have been fixed and they are: the Chennai Super Kings,led by the Indian skipper,M.S Dhoni himself, the Royal Challengers banglore,currently led by Virat Kohli until New Zealand’s Daniel Vettori recovers from an injury,the Mumbai Indians,led by the one and only Sachin Tendulkar,and the Kolkata Knight Riders,who are qualifying for the top 4 for the first time in IPL history,under the leadership of the most expensive player in IPL history,Gautam Gambhir. Until today,it looked as though Adam Gilchrist’s Kings XI Punjab could have made it,before they were cleanswept by Gilchrist’s former team,the Deccan Chargers. Tomorow’s matches will be crucial as to who plays who in the play-offs. Those games are:

The Chennai Super Kings vs The Royal Challengers Bangalore @ 3:00 pm and

The Mumbai Indians vs The Kolkata Knight Riders @ 7:00 pm.

If RCB beat CSK, they will take first place and will mostly play Chennai,or there is a remote chance that they will play KKR but if they lose,they will drop to 3rd after the KKR vs MI match and play the loser of that game.

If Mumbai beat Kolkata,they will mostly play either Kolkata again or Chennai,depending on the CSK RCB result.However, if they lose,their chances are that they will play either Kolkata or Bangalore depending,
again,upon the CSK RCB result.So now that you see how crucial tommorow’s games are,gear up in your favourite team’s colours,make time and watch the games at 3:00 pm and at 7:00 pm at Set Max live. Hope you enjoy! 🙂 Who will win?
