The team of CSK has defeated Gujarat and cut the ticket for the final.

New Delhi. After the playoff battle in IPL (IPL 2023), 3 teams are seen in the trophy race. MS Dhoni’s team has booked the final ticket by defeating defending champions Gujarat in Qualifier-1. At the same time, the wait for the second finalist will also end after the great match between Gujarat and Mumbai (GT vs MI). It is going to be a neck-to-neck fight between the two teams, but if rain intervenes in this match, then which team will Dhoni face?

This season, rain spoiled the game in some matches, which included the match between Lucknow and Chennai. In league matches, 1-1 point was distributed to the teams when the match was canceled due to rain. But if it rains in the qualifier match, then either Gujarat or Mumbai may have to face heavy losses. If there is a possibility of cancellation of the match due to rain, then this season the second finalist will be decided considering the points and run rate of both the teams.

Mumbai’s hopes will be shattered

If it rains in this match, then Mumbai’s hopes will be dashed. The reason for which will be the performance of the team in league matches, which is far behind in comparison to Gujarat. The Gujarat team had won 10 out of 14 matches and entered the playoffs with 20 points. During this, the run rate of this topper team was 0.809. On the other hand, talking about Mumbai, this team made it to the playoffs with 16 points in 14 matches and the run rate remained in minus. If Qualifier-2 is canceled due to rain, then looking at the statistics, Hardik Pandya & Co. can deduct the ticket for the final without playing.

Gujarat will have to cut the ticket for the final only with hard work.
