On Tuesday, April 2, the Indian Premier League (IPL) announced adjustments to its schedule, necessitated by Kolkata's inability to host their match against Rajasthan on April 17 due to Ram Navami festivities in the city. To accommodate this change, the IPL organizers rescheduled Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) home game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) to April 16, and shifted Gujarat's home match against Delhi Capitals from April 16 to April 17.

The iconic Eden Gardens will now witness the clash between these two high-performing teams on April 16, while Narendra Modi Stadium will host Gujarat's encounter with Delhi Capitals a day earlier.

The decision followed concerns raised by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) regarding security arrangements in Kolkata during the Ram Navami celebrations. Kolkata Police cited challenges in providing adequate security, prompting the need for rescheduling. Additionally, with general elections scheduled in Bengal, logistical complexities further influenced the decision-making process.

KKR, who has enjoyed a remarkable start to the IPL 2024 season with consecutive victories, faces a tight schedule with two matches within three days. They will play Delhi on April 3, followed by a match against Chennai Super Kings on April 6 in Visakhapatnam, before returning home to host Lucknow on April 14. The rescheduling grants KKR a much-needed day's break between the matches against Lucknow and Rajasthan at Eden Gardens.

Meanwhile, Gujarat Lions will benefit from an extended break as they play Rajasthan on April 10 in Jaipur before hosting Delhi Capitals on April 17. This adjustment aims to balance the logistical and operational aspects while ensuring the smooth conduct of IPL matches amidst external events and considerations.
