There is a big advantage in finishing in the top two as teams get two chances to go through to the next round. Even if teams lose the Qualifier 1, they will have another chance to make amends and qualify for the final.

The Eliminator takes place between teams, which finish in the third and fourth spot in the points table after the end of the league stage. The match will take place on Wednesday, May 24 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

Back in 2016, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won the IPL after playing in the Eliminator. That was the only time in the history of the IPL when a team, which finished out of the top two spots, won the IPL. Hence, one could imagine how tough it is to win the tournament if one has to play in the Eliminator.

If a team finishes third and fourth, it has to win three matches in a row to win the IPL title. After winning the Eliminator, teams also need to win the Qualifier 2 against the loser of the Qualifier 1 to have a crack at the final.
