    Scenarios for Chennai Super Kings:

    Qualification of Chennai Super Kings to semis is now based on praying not playing. As they ended their games they are now subjected to depend on the result of the Lahore-Perth game. To make CSK into semis, Perth either should win the game or else should not allow Lahore to win with a bigger margin and cross CSK’s NRR.

    Prediction:

    In my view, with given the strengths of the both teams, expecting Lahore to win huge will be a big hope only. Also this is game of cricket, on any day, anything can happen. Last year at same position, Mumbai Indians made into semis from a similar position of Lahore and went on to win the title and seen the same team qualifying for play-offs of IPL this year from nowhere. So let’s wait and watch, what “Doctor has Ordered!” for us.
