Now that IPL 3.0 is more than half way through and is entering its most important phase, the race for semi final spot hots up. Few teams have leap-frogged over others and some have fallen behind badly.
To begin with Mumbai Indians led by the maestro Sachin Tendulkar is leading from the front and is as good as qualified for one of the semi final spots unless some real bad catastrophical mathematical combination occurs. Delhi Daredevils and Bangalore Royal Challengers look to grab the 2 spots in semi final. The battle for the 4th spot is tough and is a close call between Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Superkings and surprise surprise Kolkata Knightriders.
The other 2 teams Kings XI Punjab and Deccan Chargers though still have a theoretical chance of qualifying , but I assume their IPL battle is over for the year and they have another race to fight, to avoid the bottom place.
So my earlier prediction made before the start of IPL, of semi final spots almost seems to be correct. MI, DD, RCB and CSK or RR would make it and KKR I dont think will.
