The highly anticipated final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will witness Chennai Super Kings (CSK) competing against Gujarat Titans (GT) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, May 28. This momentous occasion marks the 10th IPL appearance for MS Dhoni’s CSK, as they strive to secure their 5th title and equal a remarkable record. In contrast, the Titans, despite their relatively short 2-year existence, will aim to clinch the championship for the second consecutive time.

After their impressive victories, both teams are riding high on confidence. The Super Kings started the momentum by convincingly defeating Gujarat in Qualifier 1. Then, the Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat showcased their dominance by delivering a resounding 62-run victory over Mumbai at their home ground in Ahmedabad.

While fans eagerly await the grand showdown, there exists a significant curiosity regarding how the weather will unfold during the match. Notably, the Qualifier 2 game between MI and GT encountered a 45-minute delay due to rainfall, specifically during the toss. Eventually, the fixture kicked off at 8 PM, with the ball exhibiting a slight nip in the early overs. The dampness on the pitch led to a reduced bounce, creating difficulties for the bowlers in the initial stages.

When it comes to the weather conditions of the much-awaited final game, there is a 40% chance of rain during the evening. It is also expected that there will be around 2 hours of scattered rainfall in the city. AccuWeather forecasts showers and as the evening progresses and the sun sets, gusts of wind at speeds of 50kmph are expected to accompany the rain.

The good news for the fans is that according to the data provided by the Indian Meteorological Department, Sunday’s rainfall is not expected to be substantial. However, the department indicated that the weather will predominantly be cloudy, with the possibility of some rainfall, albeit in small amounts.

With the conditions expected to be cloudy at Ahmedabad, the ball will be expected to move a little bit at the start. In the Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians game, the conditions got much better for batting as the game progressed.
