Do the Delhi Capitals still have a chance to qualify for the IPL 2024 Playoffs?

Last year, the Delhi Capitals managed to win just one of their opening six matches and ended up with just five wins in the entire season. Can they change things up this season and storm back into the IPL playoffs after 3 years?

The Delhi Capitals’ chances to make the IPL 2024 Playoffs have taken a huge hit. Without Rishabh Pant, it felt like they were a boat without a rudder. Their bowlers did well, but sloppy fielding cost them too much, while their batting barring stand-in captain, Axar Patel, was shambolic.

How the Delhi Capitals can qualify for the IPL 2024 Playoffs?

As of now, they have played 13 matches and have just 6 wins (12 points) to their name. Last season, the four teams that qualified had 20, 17, 17, and 16 points, respectively. One might think that, given this trend, the Delhi Capitals wouldn’t even qualify. However, just three seasons ago (2021), the Kolkata Knight Riders made the IPL 2024 playoffs after securing just 7 wins (14 points) from 14 matches. So, if they win their last match, they have a chance to make the final four.

Home advantage to work for the Delhi Capitals?

Rishabh Pant and Co.’s last game will be at their home, and that should give them a slight advantage. Another thing that could work in their favor is their opponent’s form. The Lucknow Super Giants have lost three of their last four matches. LSG have the same number of points and are placed one place below them. If the Delhi Capitals lose, they’ll be knocked out, but a win would keep them in the chase for the IPL 2024 Playoffs.
