Yesterday, Rising Pune Supergiant pulled off an impressive win by virtue of defeating Mumbai Indians by a margin of 20 runs. Being asked to bat first, Pune put on a total of 162 on the board which proved to be a match-winning one. It was the late blitz from MS Dhoni that helped Pune such a big total.

With that win, Pune sealed a place in the finals. Now the focus shifts to eliminator, from which we will get our team for the second qualifier.

Both Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Rider will now face each other in the eliminator to book a place in the second qualifier. It is the game of much importance but there’s a rain threat that looms over the game, which can result in a washout.

There are thunderstorms in Bengaluru since the last evening and today as well there is a forecast of a thunderstorm, which can result in the game being washed out. So what happens if the game is washed out?

In the case of a washout, Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Mumbai Indians in the second qualifier by virtue of ending third-ranked team in the points table. On the other hand, Kolkata finished their tournament as the fourth-ranked team. So it will be Hyderabad who will go past Kolkata by virtue of ending the league phase with more points than KKR.

In case if the qualifier two is also washed out, keeping in mind the weather of Bengaluru, then it will be Mumbai Indians who will get past the winner of eliminator as they finished the tournament as the top-ranked team in the points table.

Rising Pune Supergiant will again face Mumbai Indians in the finals of the Indian Premier League if in case rain plays a spoilsport in both the games. The chances of rain washing out both the games are quite high, keeping a look at the weather of Bengaluru and it can be said that KKR is unlucky if they lose a place in playoff due to washout.
