With the ongoing IPL 2024 in its final phase of the league stage, every game is of utmost importance and has the potential to decide a team's fate. 

While only eight league games are left in IPL 2024, as many as seven teams are still in contention for the playoffs. Kolkata Knight Riders are the only side who have booked their place in the playoffs while Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings are already knocked out of the tournament. 

Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Delhi Capitals, Lucknow Super Giants, and Gujarat Titans are still in the playoffs race. At present, all eyes are on the game between Gujarat Titans and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The start of the game has been delayed due to rain. There was a sandstorm in the city during the day before the rain arrived. The weather condition in Ahmedabad is not promising at all at the time of writing this report and it would not be very surprising if the game gets washed out.

IPL 2024 qualification scenario if Gujarat Titans vs Kolkata Knight Riders game gets washed out:

If the game does not take place, GT will be knocked out of the ongoing IPL 2024. A washout means they can finish with a maximum of 13 points and will become the third team to be eliminated from IPL 2024. While the washout will be a piece of bad news for GT, it will be good news for SRH, CSK, RCB, LSG, and DC.

RR are all but assured of a place in the qualifiers as they are already on 16 points. SRH, on the other hand, will have one team less to worry about if they end up losing both their remaining games and finish on 14 points. As far as CSK, RCB, LSG, and DC are concerned, they will be delighted that at least one team will be out of the playoffs race before they take the field for the remaining games.
