Kolkata Knight Riders secure top spot on IPL points table for first time in league history | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Kolkata Knight Riders have clinched the coveted top position on the points table in the 2024 Indian Premier League, marking the first time in the league’s history that the franchise has achieved this feat.
The confirmation of KKR’s top-of-the-table finish came following Punjab Kings’ victory over Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday, sealing their fate as the leaders after the league stage.
Rajasthan Royals, who were the only contenders capable of challenging KKR for the top spot, suffered their fourth consecutive defeat, severely denting their chances of securing a top-two finish.KKR’s remarkable performance throughout the league phase has been a key factor in their ascent to the summit of the standings. With an impressive record of nine wins and three losses in 13 matches, the two-time champions have amassed 19 points, establishing themselves as the dominant force in the competition.
Their final league match against Rajasthan Royals, scheduled for May 19 in Guwahati, holds significant importance as it will determine the final standings and playoff matchups.
It was a consolation win for Punjab Kings, who had already bowed out of the play-off race.

Rajasthan Royals bore the brunt of the defeat, seeing their hopes of a top-two finish take a severe hit. With only one game remaining and their playoff spot already confirmed, Rajasthan’s focus now shifts to securing a favorable position in the playoffs.
As the league approaches its culmination, KKR and Rajasthan Royals stand as the only two teams to have secured their playoff berths. With the top two teams enjoying the luxury of two chances to qualify for the final on May 26 in Chennai, the battle for supremacy in the IPL playoffs promises to be fiercely contested.
