Pro Kabaddi 2022 Playoffs Qualification scenario for all 12 teams as on November 24

The race to the Pro Kabaddi 2022 playoffs is heating up with each passing day. Day 41 of the competition got completed on Wednesday night as the Puneri Paltan and Bengal Warriors beat Jaipur Pink Panthers and Bengaluru Bulls, respectively.

35 matches of the league round are yet to be played. None of the 12 teams have officially qualified for the Pro Kabaddi 2022 playoffs. Before looking at the playoffs scenario for all 12 teams, here’s a glance at the standings first:

The top six teams at the end of the league round will qualify for the Pro Kabaddi 2022 playoffs. In the previous PKL season, the team that finished sixth in the standings had 66 points in its account.

Assuming 66 as the cutoff for this year’s Pro Kabaddi League as well, here are the playoffs qualification scenarios.

(Please Note: In the Pro Kabaddi 2022 points system, Win = 5 points, Tie = 3 points, Loss by less than 8 points = 1 point, Loss by 8 or more points = 0 points).

#2 How can Bengaluru Bulls qualify for PKL playoffs?

Matches Remaining – 5, Points Tally – 58, Points Required – 8

The Bengaluru Bulls need to win two of their remaining five matches to safeguard their place in the top six. Even one win and one tie will be sufficient for the Bulls, but they would like to finish higher in the points table.


#3 How can Jaipur Pink Panthers qualify for Pro Kabaddi 2022 playoffs?

Matches Remaining – 6, Points Tally – 54, Points Required – 12
