Kolkata, May 12: The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 is heading to its business end we are gearing up for the playoffs stages of the tournament and the caravan will move out of Maharashtra for the first time in this edition.

The pitch at Eden Gardens is considered a better batting track although spinners tend to come into action as the match progresses. The fast bowlers also have had some success on this pitch early on ever since the soil used for this pitch was changed.

As Kolkata is near the sea, the weather might be hot and humid during late May. We can expect a bit of rain too as the monsoon season will set its foot in this part of the world. The City of Joy's proximity to the Bay of Bengal - which is prone to cyclones - also impacts the weather conditions. Also, Kolkata witnessed thunderstorms and rain on Saturday (May 21) and there are forecasts of precipitation for the entire week.

On Tuesday (May 24), there are forecasts of thunderstorms in the morning and there is no prediction of precipitation in the evening. One hopes there are no rain interruptions during the game.
