The result of the 70th match of the Indian Premier League 2024 was supposed to decide which team would face whom in the playoffs. However, due to the cancellation of the match following rains, both the teams got one point each, due to which Sunrisers Hyderabad qualified first for the qualifiers while Kolkata Knight Riders had already confirmed their place for this match. Now the eliminator match will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kolkata team was at the first position in the points table and it was certain that Bengaluru would remain at the last position. This means that Kolkata Knight Riders had already secured a place in the qualifiers and Royal Challengers Bangalore had secured a ticket for the eliminator.

Rajasthan Royals are currently third in the points table and have 17 points. Sunrisers Hyderabad has increased its score to 17 points by defeating Punjab Kings today. Sunrisers' net run rate is also better than Rajasthan Royals. Due to today's match being canceled due to rain, Rajasthan got 17 points but lagged behind Sunrisers in terms of net run rate and will have to play the eliminator after finishing third.

Let us tell you that the teams finishing in the last two positions have to win two consecutive matches to reach the finals, which after elimination play the second qualifiers. The third and fourth placed teams will be out if they lose a match in the playoff. If they win, they will first have to play the losing team in the qualifiers and if they win there, they will reach the finals. The team finishing first and second has the advantage in this case.
