IPL-2024: Match Between Sunrisers Hyderabad, Gujarat Titans abandon: SRH qualify for playoffs

0 124

Match abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain (no toss)

Umpires call the captains and they are shaking hands now. It’s official, Match 66 has been called off without a ball being bowled. First time in 76 IPL games that a match in Hyderabad has been called off. SRH qualify for the playoffs, but this washout means a top two finish is no longer in their hands.

They’d need to beat Punjab on Sunday, and hope that Rajasthan lose their final group game. For Gujarat Titans, it has been a case of chasing stormy clouds. They’ve now had back-to-back games called off due to rain.

That’s also the end of the road for them as this was their last group game. Time to bid farewell from this gloomy evening. Hopefully we get brighter skies tomorrow in the IPL. Ta da!

With this result:
SRH’s playoffs spot is now confirmed, DC eliminated.
RCB-CSK will now be a knockout with the hosts needing to win by 18 runs or within 18.1 overs (assuming a first innings score of 200).
A win against KKR will confirm RR’s second finish.
SRH will finish second if they beat PBKS and KKR beat RR after that (both games are on Sunday).
CSK can finish second if they beat RCB and RR and SRH lose their respective games.
