TATA IPL 2024: Can RCB make it to the Top 4?


Hey RCB Fans! Today in a match with Delhi Capitals (DC), RCB won another match. It has become 1st team to win 5 consecutive wins in this TATA IPL Season 2024 and ended at 5th spot after today’s battle against DC. Are you feeling lucky for its 6th win so that RCB makes it to the top four of the IPL 2024? The excitement is at its peak as the TATA IPL 2024 season nears its climax, with only a few matches remaining in the league stage.

Kolkata Knight Riders have already secured their playoff berth, but the battle for the remaining three spots is heating up! Are you ready to dive deep into the playoff chances of each remaining team? Let’s buckle up for an exhilarating ride!

Top Two Almost Sealed: Kolkata Knight Riders

  • Points: 18
  • Remaining Matches: 2

KKR has been on the fastest track and already has its place in the next round of the TATA IPL 2024. Barely have they been defeated, they are reported to have now bagged two top finishes. A monumental collapse and an exceptional performance by the Sunrisers Hyderabad can be the only obstacles to their success.

Almost There: Rajasthan Royals

  • Points: 16
  • Remaining Matches: 3

The Royals with their last win would then book a playoff spot in this IPL 2024, more precisely speaking. The worst-case scenario (even losing what is left), can keep the team in play if the net run rate remains higher than the winner of the Delhi Capitals vs Lucknow Super Giants clash, where there are 16 points (on the assumption the winner ends on that number). As the KKR, the RR is centered on the number one or two positions.

Sunrisers Hyderabad & Chennai Super Kings

  • SRH: Points: 14, NRR: 0.406, Remaining Matches: 2 (GT, PBKS)
  • CSK: Points: 12, NRR: 0.491, Remaining Matches: 2 (RR, RCB)

The SRH and CSK could bag a berth in the playoffs, as it would be a feasible bonus to grab a seat in the top two. But, as for the other people, it needs assistance from the remaining statistics. SRH’s impressive victory over LSG has greatly increased their net run rate in the TATA IPL 2024.

And if their side manages to notch up one additional win, they’ll have all but sealed their success. Against CSK, with the help of their better Net Run Rate, wins against them in their remaining matches could guarantee qualification.

Net Run Rate in the TATA IPL 2024: LSG & DC

  • LSG: Points: 12, NRR: -0.769, Remaining Matches: 2 (DC, MI)
  • DC: Points: 12, NRR: -0.316, Remaining Matches: 2 (RCB, LSG)

LSG and DC have a decent chance to score 16 points, but their poor net run rates can be their undoing. In the closing game and at just 16 points, other teams might have decent net run rates (NRR) and move them out of the playoff.

The contest for the 4th place in power rating may be just an arena where these two teams face each other. As of today, DC has an advantage because they have 14 points already.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB): A Mathematical Possibility

  • Points: 12, NRR: +0.387
  • Remaining Matches: 1  (CSK)

RCB has demonstrated its prowess in late-season resurgence by bringing in four consecutive wins in the TATA IPL 2024. Yet, it might not be enough to take the gold medal even if the team finally grinds it out by winning all their remaining matches.

Their way to the playoffs is a complicated one with many possible scenarios and the need for particular outcomes from other teams. In the best-case scenario, SRH and CSK suffer losses plus LSG being able to win just two more matches. It has happened that RCB will overcome SRH on the net run rate and save their top rank from the DC and LSG. In today’s battle against Delhi Capitals, it has gained another 2 points and ended at the 5th spot for now.


The playoff race is still a long way from being won in the TATA IPL 2024. As matchday neared the last four somehow, each outcome became more and more decisive. The two Wildcards are leading the race, there are only two positions left and the fight for the remaining places is the raging fire. Net run rates will be an important factor in the final standings, thus making the remaining matches even more exciting for fans.
