A much awaited top of the table clash between the Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals gets abandoned without a ball being bowled as the raingods decide to persist all through the evening. At one point, the game looked to be possible with the toss happening for a 7-over game however the inclement weather came back just before the start, leaving the officials no option but to call off the contest. A point to each side and a second straight washout for the Knight Riders means KKR will now clash against SRH in the Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2024 on 21st May in Ahmedabad.

The rain continued to pour down all throughout the evening in Guwahati as it dampened the spirits of the fans as well as the players, with the game inevitably ending in a washout. Similar to their last game against GT, there were moments where it looked as if there could be a game on hand, however the game ultimately couldn’t take place. KKR now will have their sights set on Qualifier 1 in Ahmedabad as they take on the SRH and they will be raring to get onto the field and give their best performance to book their place in the IPL final. All eyes now move to the Playoffs after the league stages face a gloomy climax, courtesy of the raingods.
