Of the remaining 6 matches, they need to win a minimum of 2 matches to ensure their qualification. However, the team would aim to bag one of the top two spots.

Chennai Super Kings – Win 3 out of 7 remaining games: After a disastrous outing in IPL 2020, CSK was the team to beat in IPL 2021 Phase 1. MS Dhoni led team was cool, comfortable and most importantly looked settled during the 1st leg. After playing 7 matches, they are currently in the second spot and need three wins in the remaining 7 matches will be enough for them to qualify for playoffs.

If CSK makes it to the playoffs, it will be for a record 11th time.

Mumbai Indians – Win 4 out of 7 Games: Defending champions are currently at 4th place with 4 victories and 3 defeats in 7 matches. Despite a shaky start at the beginning, MI bounced back in the later half of IPL Phase 1 in India.
