Rain washed out the last league stage game of the IPL 2024 at Guwahati's Barsapara Cricket Stadium on Sunday, May 19. Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders shared points as a disappointing washout concluded the league stages and confirmed playoff fixtures.

Rajasthan Royals finished third in the points table due to their poor net run rate, conceding their second position to Sunrisers Hyderabad who beat Punjab Kings by four wickets in the afternoon fixture today. With 20 points, Kolkata Knight Riders topped the league stages while Royal Challengers Bengaluru finished fourth after their memorable win over the defending champions Chennai Super Kings on Saturday.

Kolkata Knight Riders will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Qualifier 1 fixture on Tuesday while third-placed Rajasthan Royals will take on in-form Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Eliminator clash on Wednesday, May 22. A loser of Qualifier 1 and the winner of Eliminator fixtures will face each other in Qualifier 2 on May 24. Winners from Qualifier 1 and Qualifier 2 will meet in the final in Chennai on May 26.
