Five teams in close battle for remaining two IPL 2024 playoff spots


Tight Finish Ahead as Five Teams Jostle for Remaining Playoff Berths

With just two spots remaining in the 2024 playoffs, the race has heated up with five teams still in contention to make the knockout stages. After Lucknow Super Giants' defeat at the hands of Delhi Capitals, the playoff picture is taking clearer shape but remains unpredictable.

KKR and RR have already cemented their place in the top four with relative comfort. However, the battle royale is on for the two places with a tight bunch of teams separated by little in terms of points and run rate.

Lucknow Super Giants' loss has made their chance of qualifying negligible with an almost impossible task in the final game against Mumbai Indians. They would need a mammoth win combined with other results going their way.

Delhi Capitals have put themselves in fifth position but rely on unfavorable results for SRH and LSG plus big wins for CSK and RCB to cement a top four spot. They will be hoping the margins work to improve their negative run rate.

RCB have a must-win game left versus CSK and need SRH to falter to qualify. A big win over CSK could take them above on net run rate. Chennai too need victory to secure a playoffs berth barring hiccups for SRH and LSG.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have control of their fate with two games at home against weaker opponents. One win should be enough but two could put them in contention for a top-two finish overseeing their strong run rate position.

With the margin tiny, it promises to be a nail-biting finish to a tightly-contested league stage. Fans of the five contending teams will be glued to results and calculations in the final week of the round-robin matches.
