Ahmedabad: Heavy rain forced the cancellation of the IPL match between Gujarat Titans and Kolkata Knight Riders in Ahmedabad. This was the first washout of the season.

The rain started with a dust storm and continued through the night, making the ground unplayable. Neither team was even able to take the field.

This result means bad news for the Gujarat Titans. They needed a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, but with the washout, they are officially eliminated.

On the other hand, the rain secures a top-two finish for the Kolkata Knight Riders. This is important because it gives them a second chance to reach the finals if they lose their first playoff match.

This washout comes as a disappointment for Ahmedabad fans who were hoping to see their team play its last home game of the season. The city will also host the first two playoff matches, and organizers are hoping for better weather next week.

The 2022 Champions and last year’s finalists move to 11 points with a game to go. A favourable result in their last league game will only take them to 13 points, while there are already four teams that are currently at 14 points or more. GT will close their campaign on May 16 with a match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad.
