SRH Becomes the Third Team After KKR and RR to Qualify for the IPL 2024 Playoffs After Being Eliminated by GT

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Thursday (May 16) secured their place in the playoffs of the ongoing IPL 2024 after their match against Gujarat Titans at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium was eliminated without a ball being bowled.

Both teams received one point each after elimination. SRH now have 15 points from 13 games and have moved to third place in the points table. They will finish in the top four regardless of the result of their last league game.

However, the elimination significantly diminished their chances of finishing in the top two. Even if they win their final league game against Punjab Kings, their fate will depend on the match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders.

If RR manages to beat league leaders KKR, they will end up in second place regardless of SRH’s result in their game. For SRH to finish in the top two, they have to win their last game while RR has to lose theirs. As for GT, they are already out of the playoff race after their last game against KKR was also eliminated. The Shubman Gill-led side ended their IPL 2024 campaign in eighth place with 12 points.

Four teams in the race for one place:

Four teams are still in the race for the remaining playoff spot: Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants. DC and LSG’s chances of progressing are very slim due to their poor net run rate. The LSG also has to win the remaining game first in order to reach the goal with 14 points.

The match between CSK and RCB will decide which team comes fourth in the playoffs. A win for CSK is enough to make it to the playoffs. Even if they lose, they can qualify if they manage to finish the league phase with a better net run rate than RCB.
