IPL 2024: Rain is Expected to Ruin SRH vs. LSG’s Match in Hyderabad

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Lucknow Super Giants will square off in the 57th Indian Premier League (IPL) game. In terms of qualifying for the playoffs, this game is crucial for both teams. A loss will hurt their chances of finishing in the top four. The game is scheduled to take place at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

With 14 points, the winning squad will move up to third place. However, what happens if the game is overplayed? Yes, the current weather in Hyderabad is not good; rain and thunderstorms are expected to persist into today. On the day of the match, it is anticipated to be clear in the morning, but there is a chance of showers at 6 PM, which is precisely 90 minutes before kickoff.

Rain may cause the game to start later than expected, but if it does, both teams will still score one point apiece, bringing their total to thirteen, which will move Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to fifth place in the standings. LSG stands to gain the most from this situation considering their net run-rate, as they will then have a strong chance to finish in the top four with 17 points.

On the other hand, a washout will also make SRH and LSG’s final two league games essential wins. There is currently a 32% chance of precipitation right before the match; if the situation worsens, CSK, in addition to SRH and LSG, will be concerned. With over a day left before the historic meeting, it is yet to be seen if the weather clears up.
