In the previous season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) collaborated with Tata Group to plant trees for every dot ball bowled during playoff matches. Continuing this initiative in the current year, BCCI reiterated their commitment to plant 500 trees across India for each dot ball bowled during the IPL 2024 Playoffs.

Number of dot deliveries in IPL 2024 playoffs

During the Qualifier 1 match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Ahmedabad, a total of 73 dot balls were recorded. In the Eliminator match between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), 74 dot balls were bowled. The second Qualifier witnessed the highest number of dot balls, with a total of 96 being delivered in the clash between SRH and RR. Finally, the summit clash of the cash-rich league featured 80 dot balls. In total, 323 dot balls were bowled this season.

BCCI committed to planting 500 saplings for every dot ball bowled during the playoffs. This resulted in 36,500 trees for the 73 dot balls in the first Qualifier and 37,000 trees for the 74 dot balls in the Eliminator. The second Qualifier, with the highest number of dot balls (80), will lead to the planting of 48,000 trees, while 40,000 trees will be planted for the 80 dot balls bowled in the final. In total, 161,500 trees will be planted this year as part of this initiative.
