IPL 2022 Qualifier 1: Who Will Win The Match If Rain Spoils The Game

 Gujarat Titans will face Rajasthan Royals in the first qualifier on Tuesday at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Gujarat qualified for the playoffs in their first season, while Rajasthan qualified for the first time since 2018. However, the climate has not been kind to cricket fans in Kolkata over the previous two days, with rain and thunderstorms. Rain is expected throughout the day and into the evening on Tuesday as well.

Eden Gardens has an excellent drainage system, and the CAB has already covered the whole area. All of this, however, may not function if a thunderstorm strikes. The nighttime rainstorm appears to be the most concerning. Rain is forecast to fall for two hours. There is a 58% likelihood of cloud cover and a 39% risk of thunderstorms.

What if the rain stops the play?

As per IPL standards:

  • If required, the number of overs in the playoff match may be lowered so that each team gets the opportunity to bat for five overs.
  • If it is not feasible to arrange a five-over match to finish before the conclusion of extra time on the initial day for the eliminator and qualifier playoff match, the teams will play a Super Over if conditions permit to determine the victor of the applicable eliminator or qualifier match.
  • If the Super Over is not achievable, the club that finished first in the league standings after league games is the winner and the other team will play an eliminator match.
