Kolkata Knight Riders Confirm Top Two Position in IPL 2024 Points Table

Date:

The latest round of Indian Premier League 2024 fixtures saw changes aplenty in the points table. Reigning champions Kolkata Knight Riders found themselves in a formidable position after heavy rains saw their match against Gujarat Titans called off without a ball being bowled.

The no-result meant KKR accumulated two more points to consolidate their place at the top of the standings with 19 points from 13 matches. This confirmed their spot in the top two, ensuring a place in the lucrative Qualifier 1. The two-time champions will be well pleased with securing two chances to seal their place in the final on May 26.

In contrast, the abandonment ended Gujarat's chances of finishing in the top four. Starting as the newcomers who went all the way to lift the trophy in 2022, Titans now find themselves out of contention for the playoffs in their third season with just 11 points so far.

Elsewhere, Chennai Super Kings strengthened their grip on third place with a five-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals. Royal Challengers Bangalore are up to fifth after wins in their previous five matches, setting up a mouth-watering clash with CSK in their final league game.

Delhi Capitals remain in sixth position despite victory, to be usurped by resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad. At the bottom, three-time champions Mumbai Indians and Kings saw their hopes dwindle further following losses.

The revised points table sets the stage for an intriguing final round of group matches and much awaited playoffs in the battle for supremacy. Fans will be keeping a close eye on the proceedings as the end of the tournament approaches.
