What is the playoff format?

Unlike the simple knockouts, playoffs present the top two teams with an advantage.

It all started in 2011. The concept of playoffs was brought in the IPL, while the group stage structure stayed the same. In playoffs, unlike knockouts, the ranking at the points table matters.

The top four teams at the end of group stages qualify for playoffs. The teams ending at the first and second spot would have a great advantage.

Playoffs would have three matches to decide two finalists diverting from the previous two semi-final games.

The top two teams compete in a First Qualifier, where the winner reaches the final while the losing team gets another chance in the Eliminator game.

On the other hand, the bottom two teams compete in an Eliminator. The winner here has to play against the losing team from the first qualifier in Second Qualifier to decide the second finalist.

Advantage for loser in First Qualifier

This leaves the top two teams with an advantage of another match to qualify for the finals, while the bottom two teams have to win two games to qualify for finals. Since even after qualifying for playoffs, teams try to place themselves at the top two spots.

Who all have qualified?

Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders take up the top 4 spots in the same order.
