The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 will see an important clash between SunRisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans in Hyderabad on Thursday. The IPL 2024 playoff race will be hugely impacted by the outcome of this match. So far, Kolkata Knight Riders (19 points from 13 matches) and Rajasthan Royals (16 points from 13 matches) have qualified. Delhi Capitals (14 runs from 14 matches, -0.377) and Lucknow Super Giants (12 runs from 13 matches, NRR -0.787) have low hopes of qualifying, but their low net run rate is very dissuasive.


The RCB vs CSK match in Bengaluru on Saturday then turns into a knockout with only one of the two teams progressing. RCB must beat CSK to reach 14 points. But that might not be enough as RCB is also expected to maintain their NRR above CSK.

CSK will also be hoping for a win. But a defeat cannot knock them out either. Even if they lose, they should strive to keep the margin of defeat as small as possible. In this scenario, their NRR could still be higher than RCB, helping them clinch the fourth playoff spot.
