The second change has been made in the match between Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans. It was supposed to be held on April 16 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, but this match between Delhi and Gujarat will now be played on April 17.

The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) is not confident about the security arrangements in Kolkata. Due to Ram Navami on April 17, Kolkata Police has not clarified security arrangements. Voting will be held for the first phase of Lok Sabha elections in Bengal on April 19. CAB had suggested to BCCI that either the KKR vs RR match should be shifted a day earlier, i.e., April 16, or a day later, April 18. Another news has come out that when there is a change in the schedule, many other changes are sure to happen after that.

Kolkata Knight Riders have played 2 matches so far in IPL 2024, and under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer, the team has been victorious in both matches. KKR currently has 4 points; the team is placed second in the points table. KKR’s next match will be played against Delhi Capitals on April 3. Delhi Capitals is also coming after winning their last match, in which they defeated CSK by 20 runs. It will be worth seeing which team can register a victory.
