Can Punjab Kings still qualify for IPL 2024 playoffs?

Punjab Kings are currently placed 9th in the points table. Take a look at their IPL 2024 playoffs qualification scenario.

Punjab Kings suffered their third consecutive loss in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) as they were beaten by Mumbai Indians (MI) by nine runs on Thursday (April 18). Missing their permanent skipper Shikhar Dhawan, PBKS top order fell like a pack of cards before the lower order came to their rescue. Despite their efforts, Punjab failed to chase the total as they are now placed 9th on the points table. So the question arises, can Punjab Kings still qualify for IPL 2024 playoffs?

Punjab Kings IPL 2024 playoffs scenario

As stated above, Punjab Kings find themselves on the second last spot on the points table with two wins from seven matches having four points to their names. They have their fixture against Gujarat Titans at the same venue on Sunday (April 21). Following they have tough fixtures lined up against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) back-to-back.

Punjab Kings desperately needs to win six out of their last seven games and finish with 16 points on the points table. However, if they finish with 14 points, they will need to improve their net run rate which is currently at -0.251.

With their skipper already missing, Punjab Kings have a steep hill to climb in order to confirm their berth for the IPL 2024 playoffs. As mentioned above, PBKS are set to face GT in their next IPL 2024 clash.
