IPL 2024 Playoffs Qualification Scenarios: What will happen if the KKR vs MI match is rained off?

We are already nearly two hours late, and the toss is yet to happen. How will a rained-off match affect the team's qualification chances? Check below.

A rain threat is looming large over the KKR vs MI match at the Eden Gardens. The match’s starting time has already been delayed, and by the looks of it, the chances of the game happening are slim. In what was supposed to be the Kolkata Knight Riders’ last home match, all fans will receive is disappointment instead of big hits and wickets. 

KKR first team to qualify for IPL 2024 Playoffs

However, KKR would accept a no-result with glee. A rain-off game means that they will qualify for the IPL 2024 Playoffs. They’ll also remain at the top of the IPL 2024 points table and will maintain their positive NRR (net run rate) as well. In what is a tournament of slim margins, the Shreyas Iyer-led team wouldn’t care how they end up on top. 

Currently, KKR has 8 wins (16 points) from 11 matches and is ahead of the Rajasthan Royals (RR) due to their superior NRR of 1.453. If rained off, they’ll have 17 points from 12 matches, and their NRR will remain the same.

Apart from RR and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), no team can gain more than 17 points. RR has three games remaining and can get to 22 points at best, but will qualify with 18 points. SRH can get 18 points if they win their next matches and qualify as well.
