Delhi Capitals can still get a playoff ticket, if this happens then…


Delhi Capitals will have to depend on the results of these teams to reach the playoffs. The team captained by Rishabh Pant is at fifth position with 14 points in 14 matches.

New Delhi. 64 matches have been played in IPL 2024. So far only two teams have been able to make it to the playoffs while three teams have been eliminated. At the same time, the struggle is going on for the remaining 2 places among the 5 teams. Delhi Capitals team, captained by Rishabh Pant, has kept itself in the race for the playoffs by defeating Lucknow Super Giants by 19 runs in its last league match. Delhi has 14 points in 14 matches and is at fifth position in the points table with -0.377 net run rate. It is definitely difficult for Delhi to reach fourth place but it cannot be called impossible. Now Delhi does not have to do anything to come fourth, rather it will keep an eye on the match between Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans, who are out of the playoff race.

Of course, Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans teams are out of the playoff race, but they still have two more matches to play in the league. Both the teams can open the doors of playoff for Delhi Capitals by defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Gujarat Titans will face Sunrisers Hyderabad on 16 May. Whereas Punjab Kings will face Gujarat on 19th May. In both the matches, Delhi will have to pray that the teams of Punjab and Gujarat bat first against Hyderabad. Hyderabad’s net run rate is currently (+0.406) which will go down after the loss.

If Sunrisers Hyderabad team loses against Punjab and Gujarat by a margin of 100-100 runs, then their net run rate will drop drastically and it will be lower than the net run rate of Delhi Capitals. Apart from this, Delhi Capitals will have to pray for the victory of CSK in the match against Chennai vs Royal Challengers Bangalore. If something like this happens then Delhi can reach the playoffs. However, it would not be wrong to say that virtually Delhi Capitals is out of the race for the IPL 2024 playoffs.
