IPL 2024 Playoffs: Qualified Teams, Schedule, Venues and Match Timings

The action in the IPL is about to get even more intense! The league stage is over, and four teams are gearing up for the high-pressure playoffs: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Rajasthan Royals (RR), and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

KKR, led by their strong performance throughout the season, finished at the top of the table with 20 points. Hot on their heels are SRH with 17 points, followed closely by RR, also with 17 points. RCB clinched the last playoff spot with a thrilling win against the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK), in a nail-biting final league match.


Talking about the recent game which was played on Saturday, between Royal Challengers Bangaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), RCB batted first, with key contributions from Virat Kohli (47 runs), Faf du Plessis (54 runs), and Rajat Patidar (41 runs) helping them reach a competitive total of 218 runs for the loss of 5 wickets.

However, for RCB to qualify for the playoffs, they needed to restrict CSK to 200 runs or below. The match remained on a knife’s edge as Ravindra Jadeja (42* runs) and MS Dhoni (25 runs) threatened to take the game away from RCB. But thanks to some last-over heroics from young fast bowler Yash Dayal, RCB managed to restrict CSK to 191 runs for 7 wickets, securing a crucial 27-run victory and their place in the playoffs.
