Kolkata, May 27: The IPL 7 Qualifier 1 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab has been postponed to tomorrow due to heavy rain here.
With a reserve day already allotted by the IPL authorities, the decision to move today's game at Eden Gardens to Wednesday was taken well in advance before the scheduled start of play at 8PM.
Tomorrow, the match will begin at 4PM IST. Also there is Eliminator game between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at 8PM on Wednesday. That game will be held at Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium.
If there is no play possible at Eden Gardens tomorrow too, then KXIP will go to final as they had topped the table after the league. However, there is an option to decide the game via Super Over if the actual match is not possible. Even if Super Over cannot take place, then KXIP progress.
KXIP were the number one team in the Points Table after the league phase of 14 matches while KKR came second. CSK are third followed by MI.
The loser of Qualifier 1 will get another chance to book a spot in the final as they play the winner of Eliminator in Qualifer 2 on May 30. There is a reserve day for Eliminator and final, but not for Qualifier 2. The final is on June 1.
