Gujarat Titans hold out a slim ray of hope for IPL 2024 playoffs berth

After a change in leadership, Gujarat Titans haven't had the best of seasons, currently languishing at the bottom half of the table. Although the Shubman Gill-led side is virtually out of the playoffs race, they still have a slim ray of hope after defeating defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) last night comprehensively by 35 runs. 

With the win, GT climbed up to the eighth spot with ten points from twelve games. 

They have two more matches remaining this season, against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on May 13 and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on May 16. 

They will need to win both matches by big margins and hope other results go their way if they fancy a chance for a playoffs spot.
