A high-stakes match awaits the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they take on the Gujarat Titans, the table-toppers, on Sunday, May 21, at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. However, the city was drenched by rain a day before the match on Saturday. Will the rain play spoilsport in this must-win game for RCB? Let’s take a look:
RCB vs GT Weather Report
AccuWeather predicts a high likelihood of rain that may disrupt the game. Rain showers are expected throughout the day from 1 PM IST onwards, with a probability of more than 50% during the match hours.
What if the rains disrupt the RCB vs GT game?
In case of rain causing interruptions during the game, there is a possibility that the overs may need to be shortened. If this option is not feasible, the match will be abandoned, resulting in both teams being awarded one point each.
In that case, RCB, who currently have 14 points, would reach 15 points, and their playoffs scenario would rely on the Mumbai Indians’ match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, as both teams would reach 16 points upon victory.
However, Gujarat Titans’ standing remains unaffected, even if they secure one additional point through a win, as they comfortably hold the first position on the points table and have qualified for the playoffs.
