Even in IPL 5 CSK didnt deserve a chance of playoffs but they got there and went to the finals.
That’s the point! Why not accept if fortune/luck comes in our way? Pakistan also won 1992 World Cup in this way only. They played pathetically in the earlier matches then got help of Rain also, and then of course played superbly in the semis and finals.
Similarly our team played superbly to begin with. Everyone considered us as favorites this time. We have been playing some good cricket in all IPL editions except the 1st one (unlike other teams who have seen steep ups and downs barring CSK) So we deserve every bit if luck comes in our way. If it doesn’t come, then lets gracefully accept that we didn’t play to our potential.
Also there could be rain today. Chances that the match will be curtailed for few overs (may not get washed off completely). If we chase, we definitely have good chance of winning (I feel ABD will play crucial role today) and then we will just keep our fingers crossed for tomorrow (I think KKR will not want to lose just like that. If they see a chance of win, I think they will go for it and get it).
Regarding playoffs (we will think of it later if we make it to it first)
