Chennai Super Kings have four games left to play in the league stage and need to win all of them to have any chances of making into the knockout stage of the competition. CSK are yet to play the likes of MI, KKR and RCB, so will have a difficult job on their hands. If CSK miss out on playoff qualification, it will be the first in the franchise's history.
