Gujarat Titans Vs Kolkata Knight Riders, IPL 2024: Gujarat Titans eliminated after washout in Ahmedabad

The rain played a decisive role in sealing Gujarat Titans’ fate as last year’s runner-up after their match against Kolkata Knight Riders ended in a washout. However, it brought jubilation to the Knight Riders, securing them a coveted top-two finish, granting them the advantage of an additional chance to vie for the championship through the playoffs.

It’s been a decade since KKR last clinched a top-two finish in 2014, coincidentally also the year they lifted the trophy, reports Live Cricket Score.

This outcome sets the stage for a high-stakes showdown between Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants, now a knockout match where the defeated team faces certain elimination. While both Gujarat and KKR still hold the power to sway the standings, with one game left for each. Gujarat will head to Hyderabad to take on SRH, contenders for a playoff berth, on May 16, while KKR’s final league encounter against Rajasthan Royals in Guwahati on May 19 carries significant weight.

Despite securing a playoff berth, the washout poses a minor setback for KKR, as they miss out on valuable game time in the same venue where they have now stamped their playoff presence
