Business News/ Sports / Sports News/  IPL 2023 GT vs CSK Final: Will rain play spoilsport? Check Ahmedabad weather updates

The stage is set for the GT vs CSK Final at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Sunday. The defending champions Gujarat Titans will clash with four-time champions Chennai Super Kings. Hardik Pandya-led GT must be looking at a repeat of their debut season of 2022 when they defeated Rajasthan Royals in the finals to claim the trophy. While for MS Dhoni-led CSK, the finals will be about equalizing the number of IPL crowns with Mumbai Indians (MI).

But, as per the recent reports the weather gods can make their presence count during the GT vs CSK Final in Ahmedabad on Sunday.

GT vs CSK final match: Ahmedabad Weather Report

Based on the information provided by Accuweather, Ahmedabad is expected to experience a nighttime temperature of approximately 28 °C. The upcoming matchday will be characterized by mostly cloudy conditions, with a possibility of a few evening thunderstorms. The cloud cover is predicted to be around 56%, and there is a forecast of 2 hours of rainfall. It is important to mention that there is a 61% chance of thunderstorms occurring during the night.

The fans of both teams will pray that the rains make some space for the epic finals. GT and CSK have dominated the IPL 2023 tournament to reach this stage. While GT was magical since the beginning of the tournament, CSK recovered from a shaky start.

Interestingly, in all their previous 4 faceoffs, GT has defeated CSK in 3 matches and the 1 CSK won was during the crucial Qualifier 1.

In their home stadium, Ahmedabad, GT has a wonderful record and in the 9 matches played on the pitch this season, they won 6. While the toss doesn't seem to create much impact on the venue, the team batting first has some advantage.

GT players have maintained good form in the season as Shubman Gill is on top to win Orange Cap with 851 runs, while Mohammad Shami (28), Rashid Khan (27), and Mohit Sharma (24) are fighting for the Purple Cap. CSK's opening partnership of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway will decide a lot of things for the team. Ruturaj Gaikwad has smashed half-centuries in all 4 matches against GT in IPL 2023.
