The rain is set to play a spoilsport in the IPL 2024 clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday, May 16.

The city of Hyderabad has been experiencing heavy showers since Wednesday and it remains doubtful whether the clash between SRH and GT will take place on Thursday (today, May 16). In a video that went viral on social media, the entire ground at the Uppal Stadium has been covered with sheets. As per the report, Hyderabad and Bengaluru received yellow alert for the next two days.

The match against Gujarat Titans and Kolkata Knight Riders was abandoned without a toss due to torrential rain in Ahmedabad. Both sides received a point each, but Shubman Gill-led GT got knocked out of the tournament in their do-or-die match, which didn't take place due to heavy showers.

However, the clash between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans will likely to be the second incident where the match got washed out due to rain in the ongoing IPL 2024.

The upcoming IPL 2024 match is crucial for the Pat Cummins-led side, as they must win to officially become the third team, following Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals, to qualify for the playoffs.

If this match is washed out without a ball being bowled, or even if a shortened game doesn’t produce a result, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans will receive one point each and Pat Cummins-led side will officially advance to the playoffs stage with 15 points.

Pat Cummins-led side will consolidate their spot in the top four on the points table with 15 points and a victory in their next match against Punjab Kings would help them secure either a second or third-place finish in the league stage, depending on the results of Rajasthan Royals' final league stage match against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday, May 19.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are currently at the fourth spot with seven wins in their 12 outings and accumulated 14 points.
