Five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) are set to clash against reigning champions Gujarat Titans (GT) in the all-important Qualifier 2 of IPL 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday, May 26. While the fans are expecting a hard-fought contest between two star-studded teams, inclement weather could play a role in the fixture. 

Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans suffered their first defeat against Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 1 at the Chepauk. However, a return to their home venue for Qualifier 2 has them as favourites to make it to the final of the competition for a second season running. While Mumbai Indians are hoping to spoil the party for the home side, inclement weather conditions in Ahmedabad will worry Rohit Sharma.

Who will reach IPL 2023 final if GT vs MI Qualifier 2 washes out?

In the unfortunate scenario of the game being washed out due to rain, Titans will seal their place in the final by virtue of their higher position in the points table during the league phase. Rohit’s team, who qualified for the playoffs after finishing in fourth place in the points table, will bow out of the tournament in case the match gets abandoned.

It will be a heartbreaking outcome for the visitors as they are one of the most in-form sides in the competition, heading into the knockout game on the back of two successive victories. Talking about the action, Gujarat Titans succumbed to a damaging defeat against Chennai Super Kings, their first against the four-time champions, after they failed to tackle CSK’s spinners in their backyard. However, the batting-friendly conditions in Ahmedabad will suit their batters in the upcoming clash.
