Rajasthan Royals suffered loss due to game being canceled due to weather

Guwahati received light rain before the start of the match, delaying the toss at 7 pm by more than three hours. After a lot of waiting, the toss was called and a 7-7 overs match was played, but then rain came and the match had to be cancelled.

Due to the cancellation of this match, Kolkata and Rajasthan got one point each. KKR were sure to finish first regardless of the outcome of the match and the team has already finished the league stage with 20 points. At the same time, Rajasthan had a chance to win and come second with 18 points, but due to one point, it got only 17 points and Hyderabad also has the same number of points. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad has a higher net run rate. The result was that they finished second, while Rajasthan Royals had to be content with third place.

It is noteworthy that Rajasthan Royals had won 8 out of the first 9 matches and were on their way to finishing first, but after this the team’s very poor performance started. Sanju Samson’s team has faced four consecutive defeats and today’s match has been cancelled. As a result, the team’s dream of finishing the league stage in the top two was shattered and will now have to play elimination matches. Rajasthan will face Royal Challengers Bangalore in the eliminator. The match between the two teams will be held on May 22.
