With only one league match to go between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings in IPL 2022, we now have our four teams who have made it to the business end of the tournament. Gujarat Titans (GT) were the first team to make it to the playoffs and they finish the season at the top of the table going into the qualifiers. Rajasthan Royals (RR) did their chances no harm of winning the title for the second time after finishing in the top 2 of the table.

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) would be a little disappointed to see themselves in the third place of the IPL 2022 points table after dominating the first half of the tournament. They will be playing the eliminator against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) after Delhi Capitals (DC) lost their must-win game against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Saturday at the Wankhede stadium.
