Closest IPL ever? After 59 matches, no team qualified for playoffs, just two eliminated

IPL 2024: Surprisingly, no team has officially qualified for IPL playoffs. Having said that KKR and RR will definitely go through.

We are in the business end of the IPL 2024, and not even one team has qualified for the playoffs. On Friday, table-toppers Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Mumbai Indians, which is a dead rubber for the latter. As for KKR, a win would put a (Q) against their name. Similar is the case with Rajasthan Royals, who are second on the points table, and a win or not, they will sail through.

SRH Close, But Not a Done Deal

But what about the rest of the positions? Third-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad are on 14 points after 12 matches, having won seven games. Given the situation of the IPL points table, they should also go through. But for them to not go ahead, they will have to lose by big margins, and CSK and DC or LSG will have to do so as well. The possibility of all this is low, but it can’t be ruled out for sure.

SRH Remaining matches: GT, PBKS

CSK’s Loss to GT has Opened up Possibilities

Given that SRH will go through, the fourth position can go to anyone. Even RCB for that matter. But CSK still have a decent chance. In fact, the best of the lot who are still in the fray. The face in-form RR and RCB next, and if they can keep loss at bay, their chances improve significantly. Otherwise, they would have to play the NRR game with GT and DC.

CSK Remaining matches: RR, RCB

DC & LSG in Race too

This is here where things get interesting. At fifth and sixth positions in the IPL points table, DC & GT are tied at 12 points each. They of course need to win their remaining matches, also hope that the other two teams on 12 points, lose their matches. At this point it is anybody’s slot to take.

Guess What, RCB & GT in the Hunt Too

Two matches remaining and 10 points currently for RCB. The situation looks grave for them. But there’s still a remote possibility of them going through. They need huge wins in the last two matches. Plus, other teams on 12 points — three of them — will have to lose badly. Coming to GT, they are mathematically still in there, but look at the scenario. Their NRR is in negative, so..let’s just leave it to that,
