KKR vs RR Game On Apr 17 At Eden Gardens To Be Rescheduled

The IPL 2024 has already set the fire with close finishes, record-breaking games and breathtaking speeds. In the midst of this, the KKR vs RR game which is scheduled to take place on April 17 is likely to be rescheduled, the reports say.

From just one leg schedule, the Board has also released the schedule for the second leg. With the election in the offing, the possibilities of security concerns have already started to plague the league.

Despite the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Election Commission of India (ECI) working in tandem, the clash has emerged for the game between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders due to other reasons.

KKR vs RR Clash To Be Rescheduled Due to General Elections

The fixture between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders is all set to happen at Eden Gardens on the 17th of April but the board is looking to reschedule or relocate the game due to a potential clash because of the Ram Navami festival.

Ram Navami festival is expected to be a large congregation like in previous years and more because of the inauguration of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. All the parties, including the franchises and state boards, have been communicated the same.

Currently, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) is also discussing with the Kolkata Police about the same. While the talks are still ongoing, there is no decision made yet by the Board. The franchises and broadcasters are gauging the readiness for any potential changes.

Talking to the media outlet, a senior official from the BCCI said:

“Discussions are ongoing with the police authorities, and we anticipate making a decision soon’”

Why was the schedule released in two legs for the current season of the Indian Premier League?

Due to the general elections in India in April and May 2024, the BCCI has released the schedule in two legs. There were also talks of the glamourous and cash-rich tournament being held away from India in UAE.

However, the board denied and has also taken care of conducting the game in a home and away format in 2024. In the ongoing campaign, Rajasthan Royals have started on a good note with two wins in two games whereas Kolkata Knight Riders Kolkata is on top of the table with two wins in two games with a superior run rate.
