GT vs KKR: What if Gujarat Titans vs Kolkata Knight Riders is washed off? Shubman Gill & Co to be eliminated

The GT vs KKR clash in Ahmedabad is delayed. This is mainly owing to the rain in Ahmedabad. The Toss is being delayed after some heavy rain in the afternoon. While reports claim that there isn’t any rain at this moment, but the pitch is still under covers. Adding more concerns is the lightning in the air, which hints at further rain.

Huge Problems for Gujarat Titans

Should the match get called off, it is curtains for Gujarat Titans. A wash off means both the teams get 1 point apiece. In such a scenario, Shubman Gill and Co will be eliminated from the race for the knockouts. Currently Gujarat Titans are still in the race for the IPL Playoffs, based on slim chance.

But it is extremely important for GT to win this current encounter with KKR to keep their playoffs hopes alive. Should the game doesn’t take place or is called of, then GT will have to bow out of the tournament.

Gujarat Titans will be praying for the rain gods to stop raining. The last year’s runners-up will be desperately needing a win at all costs to stay alive in the race for the top 4. With all the odds against them, there is still a chance for Shubman Gill and Co.

On the other hand, a wash off means Kolkata Knight Riders get to consolidate their spot at the top of the table. KKR will be left with 19 points from 13 games. This essentially means they will be playing the Qualifiers 1.
