The 31st match of IPL 2024 was no less than a surprise. Rajasthan has won a match which was entirely in the name of Kolkata Knight Riders. Rajasthan’s explosive batsman Jos Buttler fought alone like a one-man army and ultimately managed to lead the team to victory. With Royals winning this match, it is almost certain that they will play in the playoffs. Rajasthan has played 7 matches so far this season, out of which it has won 6 matches. On the other hand, there are 4 such teams for which the race for playoffs is almost over.

KKR is in a strong position even after the defeat

The points table of IPL 2024 is changing after every match. The tournament has reached a stage where every match can either get a team eliminated or get a ticket to the playoffs. Even after losing to Rajasthan, Kolkata team is in a very strong position. KKR has played 6 matches so far this season, out of which it has won 4 matches. Even before this match, KKR was at second position and is still at second position, but now it has 2 defeats in its account. However, due to their strong position in the points table, it is considered certain that Kolkata will play in the playoffs. Apart from this, Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad also seem to be in a strong position. But there are 4 teams which are almost out of this race.

It is almost certain that these 4 teams will be out

Let us tell you that on the basis of the matches played so far in IPL 2024, it is being estimated that the departure of 4 teams from the playoffs is almost certain. Among these, the name of Royal Challengers Bangalore comes first, which has played 7 matches, but has won only one match. Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians are also included in this list. Both teams have been able to win only 2 out of 6 matches. Apart from this, it seems certain that Punjab Kings will be out of the playoffs. Punjab has also been able to win only 2 out of 6 matches. To easily reach the playoffs, any team will have to win 8 matches. Each team has to play 14 league matches. If we talk about RCB, Bengaluru has to play 7 more matches. If Bengaluru has to reach the playoffs, it will have to win all 7 matches, which will not be so easy. Similarly, this path is going to be very difficult for the remaining 3 teams also.
