Delhi Capitals (DC) concluded their league stage with a 19-run victory over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the 64th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. This win has kept DC in the contention for a top-four finish.

Asked to bat first, DC posted a commanding total of 208 for 4, with significant contributions from Abhishek Porel (58 off 33) and Tristan Stubbs (57 off 25). In the chase, DC’s bowlers dismantled LSG’s top order, laying the groundwork for their victory. Despite spirited efforts from LSG’s Nicholas Pooran (61 off 27) and Arshad Khan (58 off 33), the visitors fell short of the target. However, DC’s hopes of qualifying for the playoffs remain uncertain, relying heavily on miraculous outcomes.

Delhi Capitals’ position in the points table

DC are currently placed fifth in the team standings, having accumulated 14 points. The Capitals’ net run rate (NRR) of -0.377 is a significant concern, as it places them below both the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), despite all three teams having the same points.

Playoffs qualification scenario for DC

The only way the team led by Rishabh Pant could qualify is if the CSK defeat Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and SRH lose both their remaining matches by a combined margin of 194 runs. Additionally, LSG would need to either lose to the Mumbai Indians (MI) or win while maintaining a net run rate below DC.
