Uncountable fans donned their yellow jerseys to support CSK and were heard chanting MS Dhoni, MS Dhoni and CSK, CSK despite the rain in Ahmedabad.

It started sprinkling approximately 30 minutes before the toss, and the ground personnel were quick to cover the middle with two separate layers of sheets, as well as the regions of run-ups for fast bowlers. However, the severity of the downpour quickly increased, coupled with thunder and lightning, and the fans who had gathered in great numbers were compelled to seek shelter and withdraw into the stands. Huge puddles of water were also spotted near to the exposed centre strip.

The cut-off time for a 5-overs-per-side match is 12:26 am IST (May 29)

There will be no Super Over today as the match officials will wait for a 5-overs contest to get underway.

The match will head into the Reserve Day if even a 5-over match is not completed on Sunday.

Notably, there was a rain delay before the start of the IPL 2023 Qualifier 2 between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians. However, the rain relented after a couple of hours and the two teams played a full 20-overs-per-side match.

There is a lot of excitement surrounding this final, since many people believe it will be MS Dhoni’s farewell game. On the night of the game, Ambati Rayudu declared his retirement, and all cricket fans will be hoping to see their heroes in act.

As per the rules, if the IPL final is affected by rain or washed out on the day of the match, the game can be played on the next day, which is treated as a reserve day. But if the reserved day is also affected by weather conditions or is washed out, the team which ends in first position after the league round, wins the title. The defending champions Gujarat Titans had topped the points table after the 70-match league round, finishing as the only team to have won 10 out of 14 matches and 20 points. Chennai Super Kings finished second with 17 points.
