Can CSK qualify for IPL 2024 Playoffs

Chennai Super Kings’ recent victory over Rajasthan Royals has significantly bolstered their bid for a spot in the IPL playoffs. With 14 points from 13 matches, their upcoming clash against Royal Challengers Bengaluru holds immense importance. A win in this pivotal encounter would secure their berth in the playoffs. However, even if they face defeat, CSK still has pathways to advance.

They could benefit if Delhi Capitals stumble in one of their remaining matches or if Royal Challengers Bengaluru fails to surpass CSK’s net run rate despite a victory. Alternatively, CSK could aim for the second spot in the table by defeating RCB and hoping for losses from Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad in their upcoming fixtures.
