The four Qualifiers of this year’s IPL were confirmed on the 16th over of the second innings of the last league match of IPL 2018. Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals are confirmed the the top four positions of IPL 2018 with the Qualifier 1 being played in Wankhede stadium between CSK and SRH.
The Eliminator will be played between KKR and RR, who notched a qualifying place with all the luck in the world going in favour of them. It will be played in Eden Gardens and there is no doubt KKR will have a huge home support.
If they manage to win, the Qualifier 2 between the winner of the Eliminator and the loser of Qualifier 1 will also be held in Kolkata. Last time the Kolkata Knight Riders played a qualifier in Eden Gardens, they went up to notch an impressive win and the IPL trophy.
All the other teams finished at 12 points and only Delhi Daredevils finished at 10 points. The points table is an accurate depiction on how close the IPL was this year. Maybe the closest ever.
