IPL 2024: KKR Makes History, Seals Top Spot in IPL Points Table For The First Time! Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) has etched their name in IPL history by clinching the top spot in the points table for the first time ever!

This remarkable feat comes after a stellar performance under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer, who has guided his team to 9 wins, 3 losses, and 1 tie in 13 matches, amassing a total of 19 points.

This Loss Marks A Significant Setback For RR

KKR’s ascension to the top was further solidified by the defeat of Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the hands of Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the 65th match of IPL 2024. RR, led by Sanju Samson, succumbed to a 5-wicket loss with 7 balls remaining, effectively dashing their hopes of dethroning KKR from the summit.

They Were Already Eliminated From The Playoff Contention

PBKS, on the other hand, can only take solace in this victory. They were already eliminated from the playoff contention.

With two teams already confirmed for the playoffs, the battle for the remaining two spots is heating up. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have been handed a golden opportunity to finish in the top 2 thanks to RR’s recent slump.
