IPL 2024: What Happens if the GT vs KKR Match in Ahmedabad is Washed Out? 

The dream of defending their IPL 2022 title seems to be fading away for the Gujarat Titans (GT) as rain casts a shadow over their crucial match against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The coin toss for the match, scheduled for May 13th, was delayed due to bad weather, including a sandstorm and heavy downpour.

Gujarat Titans in Must-Win Situation

Currently placed eighth on the points table with 10 points, GT needs victories in both their remaining matches to reach the coveted 14-point mark and secure a playoff berth. However, their hopes hinge on the outcome of the rain-affected KKR clash.

A complete washout would spell doom for GT’s playoff aspirations. With a maximum of only two points achievable from their remaining games, even a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their final league fixture wouldn’t be enough to climb to the required 14-point mark. This scenario would also see GT become the third team to be eliminated from IPL 2024, following Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings.

If the match is abandoned, both GT and KKR would share a single point each. While this wouldn’t significantly alter KKR’s position at the top of the table with 18 points, it would definitively crush GT’s playoff hopes. KKR has already secured their playoff berth and is well-positioned for a top-two finish, needing just one win from their remaining two matches.

Seven Teams in the IPL 2024 Playoff Race

The rain delay in Ahmedabad highlights the tight race for the remaining playoff spots. While Rajasthan Royals (16 points) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (14 points) appear comfortable in second and third positions, three teams – Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals, and Lucknow Super Giants – are all tied at 12 points each. Royal Challengers Bangalore (10 points) joins GT in the fight for the final two playoff positions, with both teams capable of reaching a maximum of 14 points.

Even if the rain relents and allows for a full match against KKR, GT’s path to the playoffs remains narrow. Their final league match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad becomes a must-win encounter, with their poor net run rate of -1.063 also potentially hindering their progress.

All eyes will be on the weather in Ahmedabad as the wait continues for a potential resumption of the match between GT and KKR. A washout would significantly impact the playoff race, potentially eliminating GT and leaving only six teams to battle it out for IPL 2024 glory.
