IPL 2023: What if Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians Qualifier 2 gets abandoned due to rain?


PC: Dnaindia

After a stunning win over Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator of IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians (MI) are set to take on Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad to seal a place in the finals. Despite losing to Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 1, MI are in the hunt to clinch their sixth title in history.

Akash Madhwal is one player who has already made a significant impact in the ongoing season. Despite playing only seven matches, the 29-year-old pacer has proved his worth in the cash-rich league, picking up an impressive five-wicket haul and displaying remarkable consistency.

MI's batting lineup is also a strength, with Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green expected to deliver impressive performances. On the other hand, Gujarat will depend on Shubman Gill to lead the charge, while the form of Hardik Pandya and Wriddhiman Saha remains a concern.

When it comes to the bowlers, Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan have been excellent for GT so far and could prove to be crucial in securing a win.

Weather report

The weather is expected to remain clear in Ahmedabad on May 26. The temperature on match day is expected to reach 36 °C, with a humidity level of 43% and a wind speed of 19 km/h. Thankfully there is no chance of rain during the match.

What happens if it rains?

In case of rain, the result of Qualifier 2 will be decided by a Super Over. However, if the ground conditions are not suitable for a Super Over, the results will be based on the performance of the teams during the league stage.

In that case, Gujarat Titans would automatically advance to Qualifier 2, as they had topped the league stage.

Qualifier 2 and the final will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday and Sunday respectively.
