In what is an unfortunate piece of news from Ahmedabad, the toss between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans for the 2nd Qualifier has been delayed at the Narendra Modi Stadium due to continuous rainfall in the city.

The Gujarat Titans are coming off a 15-run loss against the Chennai Super Kings in the previous qualifier, whereas the Mumbai Indians secured a commanding 81-run win over the Lucknow Super Giants in the eliminator match.
The winner of the match will face the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the grand final on May 28 in Ahmedabad. However, what if the rain doesn’t stop? Which team will advance for the final if the game is washed out in Ahmedabad?
What to Expect in Case of a Complete Washout?
In the event that the weather conditions do not permit the conducting of a Super Over or additional Super Overs to determine the winner within the allocated time, the team that held a higher rank in the points table at the end of the league stage will be declared the winner of the corresponding play-off match.
This means that if conditions do not allow for a Super Over in this match, the Gujarat Titans will automatically qualify for the final as they finished the league stage at the top of the points table.
