IPL 2023 final moved to Reserved Day

IPL 2023 final moved to Reserved Day

May 29, 2023

Gujarat Titans (GT) Vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

The final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 was yesterday moved to the Reserved Day after relentless rains delayed the toss and subsequently the start of the summit showdown at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The announcement was made at 10.55 pm IST.

The title clash between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), thus, will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium today (May 29) at 7.30 pm. With the weather forecast not being too promising for the final yesterday, it only kept getting worse for the fans who had turned up to pack the house.

It began raining at the venue in the evening half-an-hour before the toss time — around 6.30 pm — and did not stop for longer durations at least for the next two-and-a-half hours.

The rain, however, did stop after 9 pm and the covers were taken off, with two super sopper already in action from around 8.30 pm.

However, heavy spell of rain returned to force the ground staff to cover the field again and players off the pitch, who had started warming up. There were some serious puddles on the covers and exposed parts of the outfield, which would have taken the groundstaff more than a hour to clear, provided the rain had stopped.

As per the rules, the IPL final will have a Reserve Day —

May 29 in this year’s case — in case the match is not able to start by 12.06 am cut-off time, in which case there will be a five-overs per-side contest.

There are no such predictions of rain here today, which means that there is full possibility of a 20-20 over match.
