For KXIP to progress in the playoffs they need to win by at least 251 runs if they bat first. This will be 12 runs less than the highest total ever scored in the history of IPL.

With batsmen like Chris Gayle, KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran, they can become the first team to score 300+ in T20 cricket. However restricting CSK to under 50-60 runs will be the biggest challenge.

If KXIP bowls first, it will be highly impossible for them to beat the NRR of SRH. RCB posted 263/5 against PWI in the 2013 season. That is the only time that a team has scored 250+ in the history of IPL. However everything will go in vain if KKR manages to defeat MI in the last league game.

SRH will eagerly watch the match between MI and KKR. If MI wins the game, then they will automatically qualify for the playoffs. KXIP can threaten their chances but in that case they will have to defeat CSK by 251 runs.
