Rajasthan Royals are through to the semi-finals as group toppers.

Otago Volts loss to Rajasthan Royals today means they remain at 10 points. Mumbai Indians have six points with one game in hand. If Mumbai Indians beat Perth Scorchers tomorrow, then both Otago Volts and Mumbai Indians will have 10 points each. Net run-rate will decide the second qualifier from the group. To beat Otago Volts on NRR, Mumbai Indians will need to win the match by 48-50 runs (if they bat first) or in 13-15 overs (if they bat second) for a total of 100-200. Any other result will put Otago Volts in the semifinal.

Chennai Super Kings are already through to the semi-finals with one game in hand against Trinidad & Tobago.

Both Trinidad & Tobago and the Titans are tied at 8 points with former having a better Net Run-Rate. A win against CSK tomorrow will put the Caribbean side in the last four.
In fact Trinidad & Tobago can top the group if they beat Chennai by about 20-22 runs (depending upon the total they set).

A no-result game tomorrow will also put Trinidad & Tobago in the last four. They can still qualify for the semi-finals even after losing to Chennai, but will then need to ensure that their margin of defeat is a narrow one – 5 runs or 3-4 balls. If CSK register a big win tomorrow, Trinidad & Tobago will be eliminated and the Titans will be through to the semi-finals.
