Who Will Qualify If The IPL 2022 Eliminator Is Washed Out Due To Rain?

The IPL 2022 Eliminator will happen on Wednesday when the third-placed Lucknow Super Giants will cross swords with the fourth-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore. For the first time in IPL history, two new teams have joined the competition and both have qualified for the playoffs in their debut season itself.

The top two teams on the IPL 2022 points table are the Gujarat Titans and the Rajasthan Royals. Those two franchises will lock horns in the Qualifier 1 match, where the winner will progress to the final, while the loser will get one more chance to qualify in the Qualifier 2 match.

The loser of the match between the Gujarat Titans and the Rajasthan Royals will battle the winner of the IPL 2022 Eliminator between the Lucknow Super Giants and the Royal Challengers Bangalore match in Ahmedabad on Friday. While the climate in Ahmedabad is hot, there are predictions for rainfall in Kolkata.


Thus, there is a question in the minds of the fans, and that is which team will qualify for Qualifier 2 in case the IPL 2022 Eliminator match does not take place due to rain.

IPL 2022 organizers had announced rain conditions for Eliminator beforehand

The organizers of the Indian Premier League have stated that if there is disruption due to rain and play is not possible in regular time, then a Super Over will be used to determine the winner of the game. If Super Over is also not possible, then the team having the higher position on the points table will advance to the next match.

“A Super Over will decide the result if any of the IPL playoff matches – including the final – is disrupted by the weather and no play is possible in regulation time. And in case the ground conditions continue to remain unplayable, then the league standings will be used to identify the winners, an IPL briefing note has confirmed,” ESPNCricinfo reported today. 
Thus, if the IPL 2022 Eliminator is not possible due to rain, Lucknow Super Giants will make it to the Qualifier 2 match.
