The final match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) will see an exciting clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, May 28.
CSK’s Road to IPL Final
CSK, appearing in their 10th final, will face defending champions GT, who have reached their second final in only their second year in the competition. In the Qualifier 1, Chennai secured their spot in the IPL final by defeating Gujarat with a margin of 15 runs. CSK set a target of 172/2 while batting first and managed to restrict their opponents to 157 runs. Notably, this victory marked their first win against GT in four attempts.

Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, displayed an impressive performance in the Qualifier 2 against Mumbai Indians (MI) to secure their place in the summit clash. Led by Shubman Gill’s century and a five-wicket haul by Mohit Sharma, they achieved a commanding 62-run victory.
These two teams, who commenced the IPL 2023 with opening match on 31 March, will face each other once again at the same venue to establish their supremacy on the grand stage. The teams and fans alike hope that the weather remains favorable and rain doesn’t disrupt the match.

In order for a result to be possible, both teams must complete at least five overs each. If rain or adverse weather conditions delay the start of play, the cut-off time for a five-overs-per-side match has been set at 12:26 am.
If play is not possible on Sunday, there is a reserve day allocated for the IPL 2023 final, which is Monday, May 29. In the event that the match begins on Sunday but cannot be completed, it will resume from where it left off on the previous day.
If the toss occurs on Sunday but no play is possible, a fresh toss will take place on Monday. Additionally, franchises will have the opportunity to make changes to their teams in this scenario.
If a five-overs-per-side match is still not feasible, a Super Over can be conducted, with the cut-off time set at 1:20 am.
In the unfortunate circumstance that none of the aforementioned possibilities can be realized due to weather conditions, the Gujarat Titans will be declared the winners of IPL 2023 since they finished higher than the Chennai Super Kings in the league stage.

According to AccuWeather, the weather forecast for Ahmedabad on Sunday predicts a chance of thunderstorms. The conditions are expected to be mostly cloudy in the evening, with a cloud cover of 78%. The temperature range is estimated to be between 28 to 40 degrees Celsius.
