IPL 2023 Playoffs race for all 10 teams

Chennai Super Kings

CSK, headed by MS Dhoni, has won the IPL four times before. The team’s success this season, however, has been greatly impacted by injuries that have plagued them throughout the tournament and kept vital players like Ben Stokes and Deepak Chahar out of the line-up.

Despite these defeats, CSK has managed to accumulate 10 points from 9 games, but following their loss to RR, they are now in fourth place. If CSK wants to stay at the top of the table and guarantee a spot in the playoffs, MS Dhoni’s team has to keep up their strong play and improve their consistency.
