IPL 2024 Play-off Scenarios: What Happens To CSK, RCB's Playoff Chances If SRH vs GT Game Is Washed Out

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 will see an important clash between SunRisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans in Hyderabad on Thursday. However, the match has been delayed due to heavy rain. The IPL 2024 playoff race will be hugely impacted is this match is washed out. So far, Kolkata Knight Riders (19 points in 13 matches) and Rajasthan Royals (16 points in 13 matches) are through. Delhi Capitals (14 points in 14 matches, -0.377) and Lucknow Super Giants (12 points in 13 matches, NRR -0.787) have only a faint hope of qualifying but their poor Net Run-rate is a big deterrent.

SRH have two matches (vs GT on Thursday, vs Punjab Kings on Sunday) left. Even if they win one match, they will be assured of a place in the playoffs. If RCB and CSK both are to qualify, they would hope SRH to lose both their matches and then NRR will come into play. 

However, RCB and CSK are now facing another big worry. Going by the visuals from Hyderabad on Thursday, it is raining heavily. The chances of rain, according to accuweather.com, in Hyderabad is close to 50 per cent throughout the evening.

The RCB vs CSK match in Bengaluru on Saturday then becomes a straight knockout with only one of the two teams progressing. RCB have to beat CSK to get to 14 points. But that may not be enough as RCB
