Hailstones in Dharamshala – Will RCB drop out of IPL 2024 if the match is abandoned?

The 17th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) kicked off last month and the annual cricket festival has delivered some fantastic cricketing action so far. As usual there were some tight finishes, but also excellent individual performances.

On Thursday, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) faced off in a crucial match at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala as they both knew that the loser of this match would be eliminated from the race for the play-offs.

Hailstones in Dharamshala – Will RCB drop out of IPL 2024 if the match is abandoned?

PBKS won the toss and chose to field first. Rookie pacer Vidwath Kaverappa made an early impression as he lost both Faf du Plessis and Will Jacks. With RCB at 119/3 in 10 overs, the players left the field as rain started to fall, along with some potentially dangerous hailstones.

If the match is abandoned, RCB and PBKS will earn a point each, but will that be enough to qualify?

In this situation, both teams will be on 9 points after twelve games, meaning they can both get a maximum of 13 points if they win both of their remaining games. KKR and RR are already on 16 points, and SRH on 14. If play is abandoned, they will be eliminated if anyone from CSK, DC or LSG (all on 12 points) wins even a single match.

While DC and LSG face off on May 14, one of them will win at least one match once the game is completed. Therefore, if this match is abandoned, RCB’s only hope of qualification will come if the DC-LSG match ends without a result and both teams along with CSK lose all their remaining matches. It would mean practically eliminating them, even if not mathematically.
