Hosts Gujarat Titans (GT) are raring to take on the visitors Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Match 63 of the coveted IPL 2024, at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, on Monday, May 13.

Notably, GT will be squaring off against KKR for the fourth time in the league’s history. As the figures depict, both teams have produced some nailbiters. The focus shifts to weather conditions. As we write, the weather has been playing possums with everyone in attendance. Currently, approximately 83 percent cloud cover is hovering around the venue, however, there are minimal rain chances expected. Even though fans will love to see an uninterrupted entertaining match, it will be interesting to see how rains continue to bamboozle fans and cricket stars alike.

Earlier in the evening, around the venue, incessant lightning and a strong breeze were experienced. As a result, the toss has been delayed and things are looking murkier as the clouds get darker. Moreover, in areas around the capital city Gandhinagar and Godhra, light rains were reported. Furthermore, dust storms also made their way to create more trouble adding to nature’s wrath.

But as the distance between the cities in question is just 120 kilometres away, things can surely become topsy turvy in quick time. Pertaining to the weather conditions, the visiting IPL franchise KKR posted a video of the same on their social media to share the latest updates from the venue.

What will happen if GT vs KKR game washes out?

Meanwhile, speaking of the stiff battle between the IPL teams, the upcoming weather-struck contest will be a riveting encounter. The big question pops up amid all the possibilities when it comes to the IPL points table, what will be the impact on the points tally if weather wrecks tonight’s IPL 2024 match?

Well, to let the fans have their answer, the Shreyas Iyer-led side KKR will get to seal their top two berths as they cruise into the playoffs. But it will not be a piece of good news for the home side GT. If Ahmedabad fails to get a game with a result in their favour, the Shubman Gill-led side will officially be out of the race for the playoffs.

Now considering all, it will only be apt to discuss about the pitch condition which will most likely play its part in the upcoming fixture. Going by how the pitch has played in the IPL 2024 so far, the track is sporting. This implies that at this venue, both the batters and the bowlers will have their role to play.

Interestingly enough, the teams who have batted second at this venue have carried an edge. The key reason for that has been the fact that the ball movement gets more predictable later in the evening for the batting side which makes skippers fancy chasing at the world’s biggest cricket ground.
