Delhi Capitals


Delhi Capitals (DC) are having an up-and-down season in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. After having a poor first half, they bowed out in the second half but their most recent loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has put them back under the bomb.

Delhi Capitals had a great chance to seal the third place in the points table if they had managed to win the game against Kolkata Knight Riders. The Rishabh Pant-led team was on the receiving end of a 7-wicket thrashing at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Despite winning the toss and opting to bat first, they did not have a great outing with the bat. Rishabh Pant’s side managed just 153 runs on the board, well below par at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. They kept losing wickets from the beginning and were under immense pressure.

Kuldeep Yadav was the team’s top run-getter with his 35-run knock, which speaks volumes about Delhi Capitals’ torrid batting display. Varun Chakravarthy was the pick of the Kolkata Knight Riders bowlers with his figures of 3/16.

With the ball, Delhi Capitals failed to take the first wickets. Phil Salt (68) attacked the players and threw them all over the park. The keeper-batsman blasted a quick fifty over the top and set the tone for his team.

Axar Patel brought Delhi Capitals back into the game with two quick wickets. But the game was no longer in his hands. Shreyas Iyer (33*) and Venkatesh Iyer (26*) made sure to take their team home. The duo added 57 runs for the partnership as Kolkata Knight Riders chased down the target with 7 wickets in hand.

Delhi Capitals qualification scenario for IPL 2024 playoffs.

Delhi Capitals are 6th in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 points table. They have played 11 matches in the league so far and have won 5 matches and lost 6. They have 10 points under their belt but have an NRR poor -0.442.

The defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders has put Delhi Capitals in a difficult position in the Indian Premier League. They are also in the fight for the playoffs and have great chances, but a mistake can also cost them a place in the final part of the tournament.

To qualify for the playoffs, Delhi Capitals must ensure that they win the remaining three matches of the Indian Premier League. This will take them to 16 points, which could reserve them a place in the top 4 of the points table.

A loss in IPL 2024 could put them under pressure because they have a negative NRR. However, they will still be in contention if they lose a game. They will have to win the two remaining games and hope that other results favor them.
