IPL 2022 – This is what happens if the IPL Playoffs or Finals get washed out
The IPL 2022 has concluded, with the four top teams—Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals, Lucknow Super Giants, and Royal Challengers Bangalore—advancing to the playoffs of this two-month-long arduous event. The Rajasthan Royals will meet Gujarat in Qualifier 1 on May 24 for a spot in the final, while Lucknow and Bangalore will face off in the Eliminator on May 25, with the loser going home.
Before the playoffs begin at the legendary Eden Gardens in Kolkata, here’s all you need to know about the reserve day rules that will be in effect if weather interferes with the final match. It should be mentioned that a thunderstorm warning has been issued for the Qualifier 1 match between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals in Kolkata.
The two Qualifiers and the Eliminator have no spare days. According to sources, “if one innings is complete but no play is feasible in the second, the DLS system will be used to determine the match outcome.” If the game is called off, the team with the highest point total will win.
In terms of the reserve day of the final on May 29 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the report claimed that if the decider is not completed on the originally scheduled day, it will be completed on the reserve day. According to the claims, the contest would resume exactly where it was paused the previous day, and any match recalculations done with the game not commencing the previous day will be completely ignored.
