Even as Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings have booked two slots for the Indian Premier League play-offs, five other teams are in contention for the remaining two spots.

Mumbai Indians, which is placed third with 14 points, has a fair chance of making it to the last four, but Krunal Pandya says, the team isn’t thinking about the playoffs yet.

“I guess we are not thinking of (about) play-offs or anything. We are just focussing on next two games, which are league games, and we just want to do well in those two games and then (we will) see how it goes into the playoffs,” Krunal said at a promotional event on Tuesday.

The left-handed batsman attended the event along with his Mumbai Indians team-mates Quinton De Kock and Ishan Kishan. “It has been very good (season) for us, specially after playing 12 games, we are almost there at (with) 14 points and still there are two games to go, so it has been a good season for us,” said Krunal.

Mumbai Indians will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.
