Playoff race not over yet, competition between 2 teams, breath stuck on last match

New Delhi. Till now this season of the Indian Premier League has been full of tremendous excitement. The current champion team was out of the playoff race and the team, which had faced six consecutive defeats, won in the last match. Four teams for the playoffs have been decided but the race is still going on. Yes, it must be strange to hear that when all four teams have been decided then how can the race continue. So let us tell you that it has not been decided yet which teams will play the qualifiers and eliminators.

This time IPL will be remembered for miracles. The Royal Challengers Bangalore team, which had lost six consecutive matches and was considered out of the playoff race, did wonders. Chennai Super Kings had to be defeated by a big margin in the last league match and the team did such a great job. Now the current champion Chennai is out and RCB is preparing to play the playoffs. The names of the four teams for the next round have been confirmed but this race is going to continue till the last match. Kolkata Knight Riders are on top and the second and third team is yet to be decided.

The playoff race is not over
The top four teams have confirmed their place in the IPL 2024 playoffs, but the names of the qualifiers and eliminator teams will be decided after the last league match. Kolkata, which has scored 19 points, is on top and is certain to play the qualifiers. Which team will be at second position has to be decided after the last match. Sunrisers Hyderabad will have to play Punjab Kings while Rajasthan Royals will face Kolkata.

What is the playoff equation?
At present, Kolkata is first in the points table while Rajasthan team is at second place. Hyderabad is at third place and Bangalore at fourth place. If Rajasthan and Hyderabad win their respective last matches then the position of the points table will remain the same. If Rajasthan loses and Hyderabad wins, there will be an exchange of places. Meaning Rajasthan will reach third place and Hyderabad will reach second place. If Hyderabad loses and Rajasthan wins then there will be no change in the current situation.
