Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has revealed his picks for the four playoffs teams in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League.

With Kolkata Knight Riders already in the playoffs, the legendary spinner has named the other three teams that can join the two-time IPL winners in the playoffs. At present, six teams are still in contention to qualify for the playoffs. While KKR have made it to the playoffs already, Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings, and Gujarat Titans have been knocked out of the tournament.

Rajasthan Royals are currently in the second spot with 16 points from 12 games. They are also looking set to make it to the playoffs. Even if the Royals end up losing their remaining games, they are likely to make it to the next round.

At number three are reigning champions Chennai Super Kings with 14 points from 13 games. Sunrisers Hyderabad are at the fourth spot with 14 points from 12 games. Royal Challengers Bengaluru are fifth while Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants are sixth and seventh in the points table respectively.

With three playoffs spots still up for grabs, the league stage of IPL 2024 is set for a thrilling finish. And only time will reveal who makes it to the next stage, Harbhajan Singh believes RR, CSK, and RCB will join KKR in the playoffs. Speaking on Star Sports, the former spinner snubbed SRH as well as DC and LSG for the playoffs.

With CSK and RCB to play against each other in their last league game, the former can finish with 16 points while the latter can finish with 14 points. If CSK wins the game, RCB will be knocked out. DC and LSG can also finish on 14 points each.

In fact, LSG can finish with 16 points as well if they win their remaining games including one against DC. As far as SRH are concerned, their fate is still in their hands. They can finish the league stage on 18 points and can make it to the playoffs. However, Harbhajan Singh believes SRH won't be able to make it to the next stage.
