IPL 2024 Playoffs: How SRH Can Knock Out CSK Or RCB With Win Over GT

The race for the IPL 2024 playoffs is heating with two remaining spots up for grabs. So far, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) have booked their spots as two of the top four teams in the league phase. That leaves five teams - Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, SunRisers Hyderabad, Delhi Capitals, and Lucknow Super Giants - fighting for the remaining two spots.

If SRH lose to GT on Thursday, they will be under a lot of pressure heading into their final game on Sunday if RCB beat CSK.
