The first qualifier in the IPL 2024 will pit KKR against either RR or SRH. With 19 points from 13 games, KKR has taken the lead in the standings. Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad are vying for the second spot. Should RR prevail in today's game, they would guarantee the second spot and take on KKR in the first qualifier. But if SRH triumphs and RR loses, SRH will play KKR in the Qualifier 1.
