Day by day IPL season 4 is getting curious or interesting. After Mumbai Indians win over KKR, the Playoff matches will be getting excited by the audiance. Now which three teams are going to qualify for Champions League? Every one know top 4 teams who are going to play this IPL season 4's play off matches. RCB vs CSK and MI vs KKR. What do you think and say about this?

I think the top three finishers of IPL table would qualify for the Champions League after group stages. In that case after losing to MI, KKR lost the golden opportunity. Whatever, the remaining three teams has already qualified for the Champions League. RCB had a terrific season after inclusion of Chris Gayle, whereas CSK has been the most successful team, finishing all the campaign in top four, reached final twice and won once in the last season. This year too, they managed to keep the momentum. That is why they retained so many players and also bought many former players instead of buying much new players from the other team like the other remaining teams. Whatever, MI is playing good since the last season. in the first two season, Sachin himself was injured and MI too couldn't played well but in the last season they reached the final dominating the tournament well. This edition too went nicely to them. They won many matches before losing couple of matches in the last stage but finally got back their rhythm after defeating KKR in such a manner. It will boost their confidence and they will manage to carry on. Pity for KKR. This is the first time they managed to reach top four and lost an golden opportunity finishing second in the spot. Gambhir and Balaji must take all the blames as after collective efforts from the batsmen they managed to pile up competitive score but that went into vain.

Yup friend, KKR had that opportunity to make through into the Champions League and if they could have won that game against MI then they could have played against CSK in playoff matches then again there also they could have two chances to enter into the Final. But they didn't perform to their best i think.

Yes, the last of Laxmipathy Balaji turned the tide completely. Had he bowled better, at least he could tried for yorkers things could have been different. Whatever, I heard that is not the end of the road. There is still another chance to qualify for the champions league as IPL committee has proposed some new format where the fourth place holder would get another chance to qualify for the Champions Trophy. KKR have to play with the other teams of Sri Lanka, South Africa and so on, in order to qualify. Actually I don't know much details. Heard these only.

IT is quite clear that MI,RCB,CSK will go in champions leauge not the kkr. Bangalore might have edge as gayle is playing hansomely but nothing is predictible as gayle had flopped in past too so he might be same her as far mumbai they lacking confidence in winning but csk is more predictable to win if that day is not for them then only they losse.

As per me RCB, CSK and MI are the tree who are going to make it to the Champions League. RCB is an Unstoppable Juggernaut same as that of Chris Gayle, Pity that he was not picked by any tem at the time of auctions. Its only when Dirk Nannes got injured and ruled out of IPL that Gayle was inducted by RCB and since then they have won handsomely.
