DC have exhausted their quota of league matches, beating LSG in their final game to achieve 14 points from as many games.

Among the other contenders, barring SRH, all the other teams have only one match remaining. It means that net run-rates will most probably come in to play to decide the final spot for the IPL 2024 playoffs.
