Barring Lahore Qalandars, who are more or less out – they still might yet have an outside chance – the rest are all in a choking tight race to the playoffs. Consider this – how often in a league tournament do you see the points table reading thus – 10, 9, 8, 7, 6. That’s how incredibly well-fought this tournament has been.
