Playing conditions for the playoffs! If the match starts by 9.40 pm IST (4.10 pm GMT), there will be no overs lost. In case of an extended rain dance, a 5-over shootout can start as late as 11.56 pm IST (6.26 pm GMT).

In the event of no play, the team that has finished higher in the league stage will be declared the winner. The good thing though is that the covers have slowly started to come off.
UPDATE - 7.30 pm IST (2.00 pm GMT) - We have good news folks! It has stopped raining completely and the covers are coming off! The weather forecast for the rest of the evening also seems clear, so we can expect a full 20 over game here.
UPDATE - 7.20 pm IST (1.50 pm GMT) - Now, the entire Eden Gardens has been covered. Looks like the delay might be stretched but we hope that the rain gods stay away from this mega event. Stay tuned for further updates. Actually, there are no umbrellas seen at the moment.
Glenn Maxwell is down for a chat. He says that they rode the emotions of every ball in the Mumbai versus Delhi game, but it was awesome to be involved. Mentions that it was a real feeling of euphoria when Mumbai beat Delhi and they had a feeling that they had a second chance. Adds that he has played his first-ever Indian T20 League game here in Eden Gardens and he has a lot of memories. Informs that he has been bed-ridden and he is trying to get his health up and trying to get ready for the game.

PITCH REPORT - Graeme Smith is near the pitch. He says there were some potential thunderstorms so the pitch was covered a little while ago. Says the outfield is pristine and is hard to defend boundaries. Tells that the average score since 2019 is 183, so the team will at least look for a score above 180. Shares, they saw in the last game that the pitch was slow and a touch two-paced initially but in the evening games the ball comes nicely onto the bat.
The pitch here in Eden Gardens has been batting friendly and we can expect some fireworks in this important clash. Stay tuned for the toss and other updates.
The newbies in this tournament, Lucknow have a well-balanced side. They started the tournament well but have not been as consistent and as a result, they finished third in the points table. Their bowling unit seems lethal, the likes of Avesh Khan and Mohsin Khan have been exceptional and they will be hoping they trouble the formidable batting unit of Bangalore. On their batting unit, it's their top order, Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, and Deepak Hooda who have scored most of the runs, and this time their middle-order will have to step up. They have enough firepower in their ranks and are capable of chasing any target down.
The road to the playoffs has not been an easy one for Bangalore. They won their final game in the group stage and had to rely on Mumbai to beat Delhi for them to go through. Things did go in their favour and they managed to seal the final spot in the playoffs. But they have to put their best foot forward if they want to continue their journey. A big boost for them is the form of Virat Kohli. We witnessed a rejuvenated Kohli in the previous game. Bangalore will be hoping he displays his magic once again. A problem for them is their bowling mainly in the Powerplay. They have not been at their best with the ball in the first six overs and they will want to change things around in this crucial clash.
Hello and a warm welcome folks! We are now in the knockout game! It is time for the Eliminator where Lucknow will lock horns with Bangalore. The equation is simple, the winner of this contest will progress and join Rajasthan in Qualifier 2 while the team on the losing side will be knocked out of this exuberant league. Both teams will be coming out all guns blazing to try and progress to the next round of the playoffs. Buckle up folks we are in for another thrilling ride!
