Half the journey of IPL 2022 (IPL) is over. Fans and cricket experts have now started predicting which four teams will qualify for the playoffs. Daniel Vettori, the former coach of New Zealand and IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore, has also named the teams that have reached their playoffs. The final match of the 15th season of IPL, which started on 26 March, will be played on 29 May.
In an interview with ESPNcricinfo, Daniel Vettori has talked about Rajasthan Royals, Gujarat Titans, Lucknow Super Giants, and Royal Challengers Bangalore reaching the IPL playoffs. According to Vettori, apart from Rajasthan and RCB, two new teams are participating this year. I think these teams have done well for this position so far. The best combination of these teams will take them there.
Gujarat Titans led by Hardik Pandya and Rajasthan Royals led by Sanju Samson have performed well in the ongoing IPL. Both have hopes of reaching the playoffs. However, it is difficult to predict two of these three Lucknow Super Giants, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad qualifying for the playoffs.
Under the captaincy of Kane Williamson, Sunrisers Hyderabad have won 5 out of seven matches played this season. SRH team is second in the points table with 10 points. In such a situation, he is sure to remain in the race for the playoffs.
Rajasthan Royals have earned 10 points by winning 5 out of seven matches. This team has lost two matches so far. RR team is currently at number three in the points table. He will have to win at least three more matches to cement his place in the playoffs. However, she can also qualify with 14 marks. But for this, he has to improve his net run rate.
