Yes, it is good that they won their first match but in their next match against Rajasthan Royals they received a difficult target of 217 runs but they hit their best, MS Dhoni hit continuous 3 sixes at the last three balls and showed that they can complete a score of 200 but they lost.
They even lose their next match against Delhi Capitals, Delhi Capitals gave them a good target to hit which is 176 runs but Chennai Super Kings failed to complete it and lose.

In their next match against Mumbai Indians, they showed very weak batting that match even a score of 100 was seemed to be impossible but Sam Curran made it possible and only because of him Chennai Super Kings was able to score 114 which was an easy target for Mumbai Indians to complete and Mumbai Indians won the match in 12th over by scoring 116 without any loss of wickets.
After losing this match they were at the lowest rank in the points table and they were considered disqualified from the playoffs but still, there is a hope that if Kolkata Knight Riders loss all of its upcoming matches and also they need to win all of the upcoming matches then they may be able to qualify for the playoffs but this is a very tough hope to be considered because Kolkata Knight Riders are giving a great performance too and even are ranking in top 4 teams qualifying for playoffs, but still we can’t give a 100% accurate prediction so we should keep looking forward to getting the accurate thing.
