The defending champions have advanced significantly in the competition yet again. With seven victories from ten games, they have the most points. The team of Hardik Pandya is just a few wins away from making the playoffs. However, they would want to keep winning so that they might eventually hold the top spot, which offers them two chances to make the final.
The Lucknow Super Giants were also having a fantastic tournament run. However, their captain KL Rahul was injured and was forced to withdraw from the league. They lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore and were in danger of losing to Chennai Super Kings when the weather intervened, so that has undoubtedly had a negative effect. They still rank in the top half with five victories out of ten games. But to keep their position going forward would require a significant amount of work.
