Playoffs Scenario IPL 2024

The attention is intensely on the points table as the IPL 2024 group stage heats up, with analysts calculating data to see which teams can make the playoffs. There is intense competition, and each game matters. Even while certain teams appear to have an advantage, the top four spots are still up for grabs. Watchers are riveted to their screens, eager to see every game that has the potential to upset the standings. As teams compete on the field, there’s a tangible sense of intensity. Here are several factors that could determine whether a team advances to the playoffs.

Rajasthan Royals (RR)

The Rajasthan Royals are well positioned for the playoffs with 16 points from 10 games. But, up to four teams might pass them with 18 points or more if they lose their next four games. Thus, even though they are now in a strong position, they will require at least one more victory to guarantee their place in the postseason.

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)


The team has all but guaranteed a postseason spot following their thrilling victory over the Lucknow SuperGiants. With 16 points from 11 games, they are now leading the standings. They are in a comfortable position because of their lead over other competitors.

Lucknow SuperGiants (LSG)


With six wins, the Lucknow SuperGiants have accumulated 12 points, good for fifth position in the standings. The matches they have coming up against SRH, DC, and MI are crucial. LSG has to win two of these key games in order to improve their chances of making the playoffs. If they were to win just one of the three, their qualification would depend on how the other teams performed in their games.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)


Sunrisers Hyderabad are presently fourth in the IPL 2024 points standings with six wins in ten games. They have scored twelve points. Important games are ahead for them against MI, LSG, GT, and PBKS. In order to bolster their hopes of making the playoffs, SRH needs to win three of their final four games. If they win in just two games, their chances of making the playoffs will depend on how the other teams perform.

 Punjab Kings (PBKS)

After 11 games, Punjab Kings has eight points. They would reach 14 points if they won their next three games. However, much like other bottom-dwelling teams, their route to the IPL 2024 playoffs is still unclear. Even if Punjab Kings managed to lose a few, they would still have to rely on the outcomes of other teams in order to qualify.

Gujarat Titans (GT)

With eight points, the Gujarat Titans are ranked seventh in the standings. Their net run rate, which is currently -1.320, is much lower than that of other teams. Due to this lower net run rate, they have little chance of making the playoffs even if they win all of their remaining games to reach 14 points. Given their current standings, the Gujarat Titans face a significant hurdle in trying to make it to the playoffs.

Delhi Capitals (DC)


Delhi Capitals, who have 10 points from 11 games and are now ranked sixth, have a problem because of their low net run rate. They have three games left, two of which are against clubs with higher rankings, therefore they need to win as many of them as they can. While winning all three games would be ideal for qualification, DC’s chances of making the playoffs would be much improved by victories over the Royal Challengers Bengaluru and the Lucknow SuperGiants.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)


With just 12 points from 11 games, the Chennai Super Kings’ hopes of making the playoffs are in jeopardy. They need to win their next two games in order to improve their prospects. They have faced lower-tier teams in three of their last four games and the Rajasthan Royals in one. If KKR and LSG lose their individual games, they could have a big advantage if they win the next two meetings.

 Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB)

 Royal Challengers Bengaluru are still in the running for the playoffs despite their present shaky standing. They now sit seventh on the points table with eight points after their recent victory over the Gujarat Titans. Three more wins are required for RCB to have a genuine chance of qualifying for the playoffs. They would now have 14 points as a result. Playoffs might potentially result from reaching 12 points, but that would need a number of fortunate events to happen.

Mumbai Indians (MI)


Mumbai Indians’ disastrous IPL 2024 campaign came to an end on May 3 after they were defeated by Kolkata Knight Riders. With just six points from their eight losses in 11 games, they are all but out of the playoff hunt. This IPL season, the Mumbai-based franchise’s difficult journey is about to come to an end with the official confirmation of their elimination.
