Predicting the last 4 in IPL 2020

By the time you read this, over 60% of the league matches will be over. We now have a clearer idea of who can qualify and who is out of the race. We look at the points tables of the past 3 tournaments:

2017

1 Mumbai 20

2 Pune 18

3 Hyderabad 17

4 Kolkata 16

(next) 14

2018

1 Hyderabad 18

2 Chennai 18

3 Kolkata 16

4 Rajasthan 14

(next) 12

2019

1 Mumbai 18

2 Chennai 18

3 Delhi 18

4 Hyderabad 12

(next 2 teams also had 12)

Under normal circumstances 16 points should get a team into the last 4 without trouble. Hyderabad was exceptionally lucky in 2019.
