GT vs KKR: Rain Dampens Gujarat Titans’ Hopes, IPL 2024 Journey Comes to an End


New Delhi. The journey of Gujarat Titans in IPL 2024 has come to an end. Rain played spoilsport on Gujarat’s home ground, shattering the hopes of Shubman Gill’s team. The match between Gujarat and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium was washed out due to rain. With this outcome, Gujarat is now completely out of the race for the top four.

Gujarat Falls Short of Playoff Race:
The journey of Gujarat Titans in IPL 2024 has concluded. To qualify for the playoffs, Gujarat needed to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders at any cost. However, due to continuous rain in Ahmedabad, the match ended without even a toss being conducted. Gujarat Titans, a team that has been out of the Indian Premier League since the 17th season, has now become the second team to be out of the tournament. Despite reaching the finals in the last two seasons, Gujarat failed to make it to the playoffs for the first time.

Current Standings:
Gujarat has played 13 matches so far this season, earning a total of 11 points. Now, Gujarat only needs to play one more match this season, and even if they win that match, Shubman Gill’s team will only reach 13 points. On the other hand, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings, and Sunrisers Hyderabad already have 14 points each.

KKR Secures First Qualifier:
After the match against Gujarat Titans was canceled, Kolkata Knight Riders now have 19 points. With this, KKR has secured their spot in the first qualifier. However, to know which team KKR will compete against in the first qualifier, we’ll have to wait.

This script paints the picture of Gujarat Titans’ disappointing end in IPL 2024 due to rain, while Kolkata Knight Riders secure their place in the playoffs.
