IPL 2022: MI out, CSK have 2% chance — all playoff possibilities in 11 points | Cricket News – Times of India

With 17 matches left to play in the league stage of IPL 2022, there remain a staggering 1.3 lakh possible combinations of results (1,31,072 to be precise). TOI looks at each of these possibilities to calculate the chances of individual teams making the playoffs. As of noon on Sunday, May 8, here is how they stood:
– MI is definitely out of the running for a playoff spot. The best it can hope for is finishing fifth
– CSK still has a 2% chance of finishing joint fourth or even joint third, if it wins its four remaining matches
– Its chances of finishing joint third however are a mere 0.2% and involve a tie of anywhere between four and six teams at 14 points
– Despite two extra points, KKR chances of finishing in the top four are only slightly better at 3.3%. Like CSK, they have only a 0.2% chance of making it to join third spot in a tie involving anywhere between four and seven teams
– PBKS have 24.6% chance of getting to fourth, third or even second jointly but cannot any longer hope to top the group
– SRH and DC, both on 10 points like PBKS, but with an extra game in hand, have 42.5% and 41.4% chance respectively of finishing in the top four slots on points, whether singly or jointly
– The difference in the chances of the two teams is because of who they face in their remaining matches and how that affects final ranks
– RCB, currently fourth, have a 63% chance of making it to one of the top four slots on points
– Third placed RR have a 93.8% chance of getting to a top four finish on points and can do no worse than sixth even if they lose all their remaining matches
– GT and LSG, both in their first IPL season, are all but certain to get one of the top four slots with a 99.9% chance of making it on points. If things go completely south from here on, they could at worst slide to fifth
– In short, bet on LSG, GT and RR making it to the playoffs with RCB, DC, SRH and PBKS in that order fighting for the fourth slot
How we calculate these probabilities:
We look at all 1,31,072 possible combinations of results with 17 matches remaining. We assume that for any given match the chances of either side winning are even. We then look at how many of the 1.3 lakh combinations put each team in one of the top four slots by points. That gives us our probability number. To take a specific example, of the 1,31,072 possible result combinations, LSG finish first to fourth in 1,30976 combinations. That translates to a 99.9% chance
