Hot Spot - IPL 2014 Play-Off Previews - Cricket World TV

In one of their final Hot Spot Indian Premier League 2014 discussion videos, John Pennington and Chetan Narula preview this week's play-offs.

After a hugely dramatic final week of matches, which saw Kolkata, Punjab, Chennai and Mumbai qualify, they look back at some of the key moments from the last round of games.

Lendl Simmons hit the first century of the tournament, Yusuf Pathan and Robin Uthappa inspired Kolkata to seven wins in a row before Mumbai beat Rajasthan by hitting a six from what turned out to be the final ball of the game to scrape through.

As an aside, they also consider whether the Chennai Super Kings would beat international teams and whether the Champions League should be hosted by different countries around the world.

They look ahead to the qualifiers and also make their predictions for the week ahead.
