Defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) became the first team in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season to qualify for the Playoffs stage with their comprehensive 34-run win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday. GT now have 18 points from 13 matches and will finish in the top two on the IPL 2023 Points Table as well to ensure their place in Qualifier 1.

SRH, on the other hand, have become the second team after Delhi Capitals (DC) to bow out of the Playoffs race. Like DC, SRH also have only 8 points from 12 matches so far.
