IPL 2024 Playoff Race Qualification Scenario Battle Between 5 Teams Explained How CSK RCB DC LSG SRH Can Qualify

IPL 2024 Playoffs: The league stage of IPL 2024 is in its final stages. The struggle continues between many teams regarding the playoffs. Till now the future of a total of 5 teams has been decided as Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) have confirmed their place in the top-4. Whereas Mumbai Indians became the first team to be out of the playoff race and after that Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings have also been out. But there is a lot of discussion among fans and experts about which of the other 5 teams will go to the playoffs.

Only 2 seats vacant in playoff

KKR currently has 19 points and RR has qualified with 16 points, so it is no longer possible to eliminate them from the top-4. Currently, there is a battle to enter the playoffs between Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Delhi Capitals (DC), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Lucknow Super Giants. There are only 2 seats left in the league stage, only 5 days are left and the competition is going on between only five teams.

CSK will qualify as soon as it wins

Chennai Super Kings have 14 points so far in IPL 2024 after 7 wins in 13 matches and the team is currently at the third position in the points table. CSK's last match in the league stage is against RCB. After winning this match, Chennai will have 16 points, due to which the team will qualify directly. If CSK has to face defeat at the hands of Bengaluru, then they will have to hope that SRH loses their next two matches by a big margin.

RCB has no option

RCB has currently collected 12 points after 6 wins in 13 matches. If Royal Challengers Bangalore want to go to the playoffs, then they will have to ensure that they achieve the target in 18.1 overs or before while chasing. While defending the score, it will be necessary for Bengaluru to win by a margin of 18 runs or more. With this, the net run-rate of RCB will be better than Chennai.

Delhi Capitals have low expectations

Delhi Capitals had defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 19 runs in their last match in the league stage. DC's net run-rate is -0.377, so its path to reach the top-4 seems very difficult. Since Delhi does not have to play any match now, Sunrisers Hyderabad still has 2 matches left. Delhi Capitals can go to the playoffs only if Sunrisers lose their next two matches by a total margin of 194 runs. In this way the net run-rate of DC can be better than SRH.

Sunrisers Hyderabad needs a win

SRH currently has 14 points from 12 matches and the team is at fourth position in the points table. Sunrisers Hyderabad still has to play matches against Gujarat Titans and Punjab Kings, both of whom are out of the playoffs. Hyderabad can qualify by winning its next match, while SRH can get a chance to play in Qualifier 1 by winning the next two matches.

Condition of Lucknow Super Giants

Lucknow Super Giants' chances of going to the playoffs are even less than Delhi Capitals. Even if LSG beats Mumbai in its last match in the league stage, it will be very difficult for it to reach the top-4 because the team's net run-rate is -0.787. Lucknow will have to register a win against Mumbai by a huge margin and then hope that the results of the remaining matches go in their favour.
