CSK vs GT Final: Chennai Super Kings will face Gujarat (CSK vs GT) in the final of IPL 2023 on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. In such a situation, there is a possibility of strong winds accompanied by rain in Ahmedabad on Sunday evening.

IPL 2023 Final

Chennai Super Kings are set to face Gujarat in the final of the Indian Premier League 2023 on Sunday, May 28, in Ahmedabad. This is the 10th IPL for MS Dhoni's CSK, who can match Mumbai Indians by winning the title for a record 5th time.

GT, on the other hand, is eyeing a second consecutive title since its formation in 2022, which is a record in itself. Both the teams have shown a good game in the tournament. First CSK, who beat GT in a tight match in Qualifier-1 in Chennai, and then Gujarat beat Mumbai by 62 runs in Qualifier-2.

What if CSK vs GT final is not played due to rain?

  • Let us tell you that if it rains in Ahmedabad on May 28, extra time has been kept to start the final match.
  • Without reducing any overs, the full 20-over match can start at 10.10 minutes at night.
  • If the match does not start even in that extra time, then after that an attempt will be made to have a game of 5-5 overs.
  • But if that too is not possible, then there will be a super over to decide the result of the match.
  • If even a single ball is not bowled then the BCCI has kept a reserve day for the final match. Then the match will be played the next day.

Is there a reserve day for IPL 2023 final?

There was a reserve day for the final in 2022, but there is no reserve day for the IPL 2023 final as per the playoff schedule released by the BCCI. But BCCI will announce the reserve day on the next day i.e. 29th May. If it so happened that the match started on May 28 and had to be stopped midway due to rain. So the next day the game will start from where it left off. If it rains on the reserve day also, the same procedure will be used to conduct the match on that day as on the first day of the match. If not a single ball is bowled due to rain even on the reserve day, then the team which will be on top of the points table will be declared as the winner. However, if the match is washed out due to rain, Gujarat Titans will once again become champions. Because they are on top of the points table.
