IPL 2024 Qualification Scenarios

IPL 2024 Qualification Scenarios: Following their defeat to KKR in Match 47, how can Delhi Capitals make the playoffs?

At Eden Gardens on Monday, the Delhi Capitals were trounced by the Kolkata Knight Riders by seven wickets.

In the Indian Premier League 2024 season, Kolkata Knight Riders won their sixth game on Monday at Eden Gardens, defeating Delhi Capitals by seven wickets. Nonetheless, the Delhi Capitals dropped to sixth position after suffering their sixth defeat in the 11 games played thus far this season. Among DC’s top eight scorers, not one of them reached thirty runs. Their batting lineup was woeful. The only player to score 35 was Kuldeep Yadav, who assisted the squad in reaching 153 for 9.

With 79 runs scored with no loss in the opening six overs, KKR got off to a fantastic start. Despite the combined three wickets that Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav got, KKR never looked threatened. With 21 balls remaining, Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer skillfully led KKR towards the goal. Phil Salt scored 68 runs in 33 balls with a masterful effort; Shreyas and Venkatesh made contributions of 33 from 23 balls and 26 from 23 deliveries, respectively.

In the IPL 2024, DC faces a “do or die” predicament.

The Delhi Capitals need to win each of their final three games in order to have a chance at making the playoffs. However, if numerous teams finish with the same number of points, they might not be guaranteed qualification even if they win two games. The Delhi Capitals would prefer to win their final three games in order to finish with 16 points, which would greatly increase their prospects of qualifying for the postseason.

The decision to bat first was a wise one. We didn’t bat well as a unit; 150 wasn’t up to par with the way things were going. However, we grow from our errors, and each day is unique. Although our team’s performance—winning four of their previous five games—was excellent, these games are T20 in nature. We didn’t give our bowlers enough runs to defend, therefore 180–210 would have been a decent score, Rishabh Pant stated during the post-match press conference.
