IPL 2023 Final: What If Today’s Reserve Day Also Gets Washed Out?

Ahmedabad: In a twist of fate, the IPL 2023 final between the Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans was abandoned due to rain, leaving fans wondering about the outcome if the reserve day is also washed out.

As per IPL regulations, in such a scenario, the team that secured the top rank at the end of the league stage will be declared the winner. With 20 points, the Gujarat Titans claimed the coveted top spot, while the Chennai Super Kings settled in second place with 17 points.

Nevertheless, standing between CSK and the championship is Shubman Gill, who is displaying some exceptional batting form. In addition, Rashid Khan and Mohammad Shami are in an unrelenting mood with the ball. GT skipper Hardik Pandya poses a significant threat with his exceptional all-round abilities.

For CSK, the trio of Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Shivam Dube are the batsmen to keep a close eye on, while the bowling prowess of Matheesha Pathirana and Deepak Chahar can prove to be dangerous.

Experts suggest that even if play is possible, the Gujarat Titans hold a slight advantage in this highly anticipated match. Furthermore, discussions among fans revolve around the retirement of CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. During a recent conversation with commentator Harsha Bhogle, Dhoni hinted that he is yet to make a decision and would take his time before announcing retirement.
