Following a rain-marred must-win match, Shubman Gill’s GT was eliminated from the IPL 2024.

Rain caused their crucial encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders to be abandoned on Monday without a ball being played, ending the Gujarat Titans’ chances of making it to the Indian Premier League play-offs.

With 19 points from 13 games, it meant that Gullybet was guaranteed a spot in the Qualifier 1 and a top two finish. With 11 points from 13 games, GT—the runners-up from the previous season and the 2022 champions—have qualified for the play-offs.

The constant lightning, followed by a light drizzle that grew heavier over time, prevented the toss from taking place at the appointed hour of 7 p.m.

The match was abandoned by the referee, a first for this IPL season, due to the outfield being wet and the weather steadily getting worse. The five-over battle had a cut-off time of 10:56 PM.

Our accomplishment is significant. The conversation before to the match (against GT) focused on maintaining focus and exhibiting the appropriate mindset.

Gautam Gambhir IPL WIN, our team’s coach, has been quite consistent in his expectations for us as a unit. “He emphasized for us to come here and continue chasing two points,” Phil Salt, the first player for Kolkata, stated while they waited for the rain to stop.

Because KKR defeated Mumbai Indians in their last match, they have already guaranteed their spot in the play-offs.

The reigning champion Chennai Super Kings are ranked third with 14 points after 13 games, behind the Rajasthan Royals in second position with 16 points from 12 games.
