IPL 2024

DC’s 19-Run Victory over LSG, the Rajasthan Royals become the Second club to Advance to the IPL 2024 Playoffs

After Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) had already clinched their position, Rajasthan Royals (RR) became the second club to automatically qualify for the IPL 2024 playoffs. On Tuesday, May 14, the Delhi Capitals (DC) upset the KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by 19 runs, securing RR’s playoff berth. With DC’s victory, RR’s place in the top 4 was assured. KKR has 19 points from 13 games, while RR has 16 from 12 games at this point.

The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeat on Sunday prevented the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals from securing their postseason berth. Thanks to the Royals’ triumph in Washington, fortunately, Tuesday brought good news.

The Rajasthan Royals now have an even bigger objective in mind: placing in the top two spots in the IPL 2024 standings. They will play the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Baraspara Stadium in Guwahati on May 15 and have the opportunity to do this.

The Race for the IPL 2024 Playoffs is Heating up. Here’s a Breakdown of the Current Situation:

The Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) loss tonight helped the Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) lock up a postseason berth with 16 points from 12 games. Earlier, KKR, who leads the league with 19 points, emerged victorious.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are tied with 14 points apiece. Should other outcomes change, both teams might tie for 16 points and a postseason berth. With two games left against CSK’s one, SRH is slightly ahead.

Both Delhi Capitals (DC) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have a mathematical chance to win, but their paths will be more challenging. Due to their inferior Net Run Rate (NRR), RCB must defeat CSK specifically—either by 18 runs if batting first or by chasing within 18.1 overs—in order to qualify. Because of their considerably lower NRR, DC’s chances are minimal.

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG): LSG is virtually out of the playoff picture after their most recent loss to Washington. To make up for their low NRR disadvantage, they would require a string of improbable successes.
