SunRisers Hyderabad Secures Playoff Spot in IPL 2024 After a Washout Match Against Gujarat Titans

The rain and Gujarat Titans have created a very different bond this IPL season. After slipping the last game, today’s game against Sunrisers Hyderabad was also canceled. This must be unpleasant for the Gujarat Titans as their last match of IPL 2024 has been cancelled. But this will be a blessing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. After Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals, Sunrisers Hyderabad qualified for the top four.

Sunrisers Hyderabad reached the top 4:

On May 16, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans were scheduled to play at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The game ended in a loss, giving each team a point. Before the game, Hyderabad had 14 points from 12 games, but after the elimination, they now have 15 points from 13 games. On the other hand, Gujarat Titans concluded their IPL 2024 campaign with 12 points.

Due to the bankruptcy, SRH is temporarily in third place in the table. However, their position could change if Chennai Super Kings get a win against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The unpredictability also extends to the CSK vs RCB game, where weather disruptions may also occur. SunRisers Hyderabad becomes the third team to qualify for the IPL 2024 playoffs, along with Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.

This season marks a significant turnaround for SunRisers as they secure a playoff spot for the first time since the 2020 season. They had a tough time in the previous three seasons: 2021, 2022 and 2023. Their resurgence shows their determination and improvement over the years and signals a promising future for the franchise.

A slim chance of getting into the top 2:

Pat Cummins’ team is preparing to host Punjab on May 19 with the chance to secure a place in the top two and face KKR in Qualifier 1. SunRisers’ qualification ended Delhi and Lucknow’s playoff hopes and added excitement to the upcoming RCB vs CSK clash in Bengaluru. Placement in the top two depends on the outcome of the RR vs KKR match in Guwahati, irrespective of SRH’s result vs PBKS.

On the other hand, Gujarat Titans had a disappointing season. They were winners of IPL 2022 and runners-up in IPL 2023 and finished the season in eighth place. They missed their last two chances to be in the playoff race as their last two games were canceled due to rain. They are aiming for a great comeback next season.
