What will happen if the IPL Final is cancelled in 2023?
Due to a significant downpour in ahmedabad, the IPL 2023 championship game between chennai Super Kings and gujarat Titans on sunday has been postponed. The second qualifier of the season was postponed on friday due to rain once more, but spectators at the narendra modi Stadium were able to watch the entire game as hardik Pandya's squad overcame the five-time champion Mumbai indians by a margin of 62 runs to go to their second consecutive final.
Chennai, on the other side, advanced to the championship after defeating GT in Tuesday's opening qualifier. They have made ten IPL final appearances, winning four of them. The weather gods may have other intentions, despite the hope of the crowded ahmedabad stadium for a complete game on Sunday. Therefore, the question of what would happen if the CSK versus GT final was cancelled, emerges.
The end of a full match is 9:35 PM IST based on the playing circumstances mentioned in the previous IPL season. The clock can run for a five-over match until 11:56 PM IST. There will be a reserve day if the match still doesn't start; this day will also be used if the contest can't be finished on Sunday.
Considering the Super Over, the rule is also relevant to the Reserve Day. At the latest 1.20 AM IST, the outfield and pitch must be prepared for a Super Over. If the Reserve Day is also cancelled due to bad weather, the trophy will be awarded to the team that finished higher on the points standings after 70 league games. This game between gujarat Titans and CSK, who finished first and second respectively in the league phase, will be won by gujarat Titans.
