IPL Point Table: The point table game became interesting due to rain, SRH benefited, but the fate of 2 teams was washed away.


New Delhi. The thrill of IPL can be gauged from the fact that it rained in the match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans and the hopes of Delhi Capitals were washed away. Yes, IPL 2024 is now in this phase, where 2 teams enter the competition, but the future of at least 4-5 teams is linked to its result. The same happened on Thursday also, when Hyderabad and Gujarat came face to face. Even though this match could not take place due to rain. But this canceled match also eliminated Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Supergiants from the race for the playoffs. Let us understand how.

Gujarat Titans team was out of the playoff race even before the match with Sunrisers Hyderabad. For him it was a question of saving reputation or an opportunity to make a difference. The rain took away both these opportunities from him. But Sunrisers Hyderabad reached the playoffs. SRH had 14 points before this match. He got one point due to the match being cancelled. In this way he got 15 points.

In the points table of IPL 2024, Kolkata Knight Riders are at first place with maximum 19 points. Rajasthan Royals have 16 points from 13 matches. If she wins her last match then she can go up to 18 points. Both of them have Hyderabad (15), Chennai Super Kings (14), Delhi Capitals (14). Royal Challengers Bangalore (12) and Lucknow Supergiants (12) are at sixth and seventh positions respectively in the points table.

66 matches have been played in IPL 2024. Now only 4 more league matches are to be played. Talking about the points table, the places of Kolkata, Rajasthan and Hyderabad in the top-4 have been confirmed. Now only one place is left, for which the competition is mainly between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Even if Bengaluru wins, it cannot have more than 14 points. That means its victory or defeat will not make any difference to the health of Hyderabad.

Chennai Super Kings can definitely leave Sunrisers Hyderabad behind. If Chennai wins its last match and Hyderabad loses its match, then the place of these two teams in the points table will change. Chennai will come third and Hyderabad fourth. But one thing is clear that Hyderabad cannot go below fourth position. That means it is certain to play a playoff match.
