New Delhi. IPL 2024 is now in that phase when any match makes or breaks the equation of playoffs. Another interesting thing was seen on Monday. The match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Gujarat Titans (GT) was to be held on this day. The match could not be played due to rain. Despite this, Gujarat Titans was out of the race for the playoffs. On the other hand, KKR ensured its place in the qualifiers (Top-2).

Now 3 teams Gujarat Titans, Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings are out of the IPL playoff race. KKR’s place in the playoffs has been confirmed. The remaining 6 teams are competing for 3 places in the playoff. Of these 6 teams, Rajasthan Royals (16 points) and Sunrisers Playoff (14) do not need any other team to make it to the playoffs. They just have to win their match and secure a place in the playoffs.

Delhi or Lucknow team may be out today
Now 4 teams are left i.e. Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Supergiants. Today on Tuesday there is a do or die match between Lucknow Supergiants and Delhi Capitals. Whichever team wins will remain in the race for the playoffs. The losing team will be out of the playoff race. Lucknow still has two matches left and this is Delhi’s last match.

Do or die competition in Chennai and Bengaluru also
There is also a do or die match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore on 18th May. Chennai currently has 14 points while RCB has 12 points.
