However, if Lucknow Super Giants face defeat in their last match, their qualification hopes will rely on the results of other teams. In this scenario, either the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) or the Mumbai Indians (MI) must lose their respective last match. A loss for either of these teams would keep the door open for Lucknow Super Giants to secure a place in the playoffs.
