Incessant rainfall for the past few days in the city led to the postponement of the first qualifier of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 between hosts Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) scheduled at the Eden Gardens, on Wednesday.

The match will now be held at the same venue at 4 pm on Wednesday (May 28). In case the weather holds up in time, there is a possibility of a five-overs per side game by 9:10 pm latest. At 5:15 pm on Tuesday, on-field umpires Nigel Llong and S Ravi had an inspection along with curator Prabir Mukherjee. After consultations, the trio were unanimous in their decision that no play would be possible as the ground would not be ready in time for a minimum five-overs per side match.

As per the playing conditions and rules of IPL, in the event that a five-overs per side game is not possible, the fate of the match will be decided on the basis of ‘Super Over’. In case Super Over is not possible, then Kings XI Punjab by virtue of winning 11 matches in the league stage compared to KKR’s nine games, will go through to the finals.

However KKR will have another shot at final as they will be playing the second qualifier against the winner of the ‘Eliminator’ between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, on May 30.

As per IPL media advisory, the spectators, who have bought the tickets for today’s game can watch the match using the same ticket on Wednesday

“Ticketholders who purchased tickets for the original match day will be able to enter the stadium on Wednesday on presentation of their original ticket (with the bar code intact) at the turnstiles. Gates will open at 2:00pm.”

“Refunds will only be made to ticket purchasers if the match is cancelled without a ball being bowled on either of the original day or the reserve day as per the terms and conditions which are stipulated on the tickets. If appropriate, a separate announcement will be made regarding the detailed procedures for obtaining a refund.”
