Rain washes out play as SRH qualify for playoffs

Rain washes out play as SRH qualify for playoffs

Hyderabad, May 16 (UNI) In a disappointing turn of events here on Thursday, the much-anticipated Match 66 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Gujarat Titans was called off without a single ball being bowled, marking the first instance of such an occurrence in Hyderabad in 76 IPL games.
The umpires summoned the team captains, signaling the official abandonment of the match. While SRH secures a berth in the playoffs, amassing 15 points from 13 games. However, the washout dampens their chances of securing a top-two finish, leaving their fate dependent on the outcome of their upcoming match against Punjab on Sunday. They must also rely on Rajasthan Royals' defeat in their final group game to boost their chances.
For the Gujarat Titans, the disappointment continued as they faced their second consecutive game abandonment due to inclement weather. With this being their last group fixture, the Gujarat Titans bid adieu to their IPL 2024 campaign on a somber note.
Reflecting on the weather-induced setbacks, Sunrisers Hyderabad now turn their attention to brighter prospects in the upcoming fixtures, hoping for clearer skies and uninterrupted play in the remainder of the IPL season. UNI BDN GNK
