What Happens When Qualifier 1 Between KKR and SRH Gets Washed Out ?

SRH and KKR are set to clash in the Qualifier 1 match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Tuesday, May 21. However, there are significant concerns about the weather forecast for the high-stakes game.

The stadium, which has a capacity of 1.32 lakh, experienced a rainout during Gujarat’s last home game. The GT vs. KKR match on Monday was abandoned without a single ball being bowled, leading to GT’s elimination from the playoffs race and KKR securing the top spot on the table with 19 points.

The last two times KKR finished in the top two in the points table, they went on to win the trophy, in 2012 and 2014. The Shreyas Iyer-led franchise will take confidence from this history as they face SRH. Both teams reached the playoffs after languishing in the bottom half of the table for the past two seasons.

Both KKR and SRH will be hoping that rain doesn’t interfere in Ahmedabad on Tuesday. With 3 of the last 8 matches being washed out due to rain, the stakes for Qualifier 1 are especially high.

According to AccuWeather predictions, there is hardly any chance of rain. However, dew might affect the second innings due to humidity. With a favorable batting pitch, it’s expected that sixes and boundaries will be frequent at the Narendra Modi Stadium. The temperature is predicted to range from 31 to 37 degrees Celsius.

There is no reserve day scheduled for the KKR vs. SRH contest on May 21. In the event of rain causing a washout, the team with the highest points from the league stage will advance to the final.
