The 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is finally coming into shape with three teams in Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and the SunRisers Hyderabad confirming their playoffs berth. However, with just one spot up for grabs and four teams fighting to finish in the final four, each match proves to be a vital one.

But with rain playing a spoilsport in two matches so far and high possibility of some precipitation in the RCB vs CSK clash, here in this article, we’ll check all possible scenarios of what could happen if the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) versus Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is washed out.

What will happen if RCB vs CSK is washed out?

To put things clear, if the match between the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is washed out, the Faf du Plessis-led side will be knocked out of the tournament. If we see a washout, the two teams will share a point each and CSK will qualify, having finished with 15 points and RCB staying at 13 points only. 

Thus, if the match is abandoned, the Chennai-based franchise will join Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Rajasthan Royals (RR) and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the top four.
