IPL Final 2023 live updates CSK vs GT, score, result and highlights ...

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 is all set for its grand conclusion. After two months of non-stop cricketing action, it has all come down to two teams and one final match.

Though the final was supposed to take place on Sunday, weather gods intervened and made sure the game was rescheduled to Monday, the reserve day.

League-stage toppers Gujarat Titans are up against charismatic Chennai Super Kings in the marquee clash of this season at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad.

There is a lot at stake for both teams. While CSK and MS Dhoni have a date with destiny, Gujarat Titans have their own piece of history to chase. 

CSK will equal Mumbai Indians' record of five IPL titles with a win on Sunday while GT have a unique chance of winning two titles in two years of their existence. It will also be their captain Hardik Pandya's record-equalling sixth IPL title.

An absolutely intriguing battle awaits us and hopefully, one without weather interventions. It's CSK vs GT for the IPL champions' gong. You can bet on this match in India here.

Here's the LIVE scorecard of the IPL final between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans.

CSK vs GT IPL Final Live Updates

Follow our live updates below for all the action from CSK vs GT. (All times IST)

Will yesterday's rain have an effect on the pitch?

Narendra Modi stadium has been batter's paradise this season, with an average first innings score of 193 in eight games. 

However, will the rain have an effect on the surface? It looks unlikely as Friday the ground received some rain and Shubman Gill proceeded to slam bang GT to a score of 233 against MI in Qualifier 2.

What's the weather looking like on Monday?

It's looking much much better on Monday. The chances of rain are almost none during the day but evening might see short showers. But then again, you can never predict weather accurately.

Let's hope we get a full 40-over game tonight.

00:30- The IPL organisers have confirmed that tickets for the Final will carry forward to Monday. You can read more on that here.

23:00- It's official! The match will be postponed to tomorrow due to rain, the first time ever in IPL history. Disappointing for fans to wait all this time, but it was what was needed to ensure both these teams have a full match to play and bring the best out of one another.

21:25- The rain keeps coming and going, with all these amazing players the weather's acting as the protagonist!

20:10- Should a match not be possible at all today, there will be a reserve day tomorrow where GT and CSK can play out a full final (barring another set of rain interruptions). Let's hope that isn't the case.

18:40- Rain has started in Ahmedabad and the covers are on. Hopefully, we don't get much of a delay. Here's what will happen if the Final is rained off.

17:58- Ambati Raydu has announced his retirement from IPL.

17:45- Welcome to TSN's IPL Final live coverage we will also be taking a look at the performances in the closing ceremony to hype us up for the clash between these two giants which should be an exciting affair!

We have an IPL Mid Show tonight

Folks, we will have a closing ceremony before the game tonight. This piece has everything you need to know about the same.

Eyes on the prize

This is what the teams are playing for tonight. The glittering golden IPL trophy.

— Gujarat Titans (@gujarat_titans) May 28, 2023 A sea of yellow in Ahmedabad?

Ahmedabad might be the Gujarat Titans' den but the CSK fans are apparently on a mission to deck the place out in yellow. It's going to be an electric atmosphere for sure.

— VK (@Motera_Stadium) May 28, 2023 Shami, Rashid and Mohit - GT's wicket-taking arsenal

Gujarat Titans probably have the strongest bowling attack and it is no wonder that the top 3 wicket takers in IPL this season all belong to GT. 

Mohammed Shami is the leader of the Purple Cap race with 28 wickets. Rashid Khan is not far behind with 27 and Mohit Sharma has 24 wickets.

What terrific resources to have as a captain, especially in an IPL final!

Can Gill score 123?

Shubman Gill is the toast of the town in Ahmedabad right now. His assualt on Mumbai Indians in the Qualifier 2 was one of the greatest IPL knocks of all time. 

That knock also put him within 123 runs of breaking Virat Kohli's all-time record for scoring the most runs in an IPL season. Will Shubman erase that record?

You cannot rule that out, given the form he's in.

Dhoni vs Hardik V3.0

It's the third time MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya are pitting their wits against each other this season. Interestingly, the opening game of the season saw CSK take on GT at this very venue. Hardik won that round. 

But at Chepauk, in the Qualifier 1, MS Dhoni spun a web around Titans and Pandya to qualify for the final. Tonight, in their third battle, who will come up trumps?

MSD's 250th IPL game

What better occasion to play your 250th IPL game than the final? CSK captain MS Dhoni will walk into the history books when he takes the field tonight. 

Will he make the grand occasion memorable by leading his side to their fifth IPL title?

What are the weather gods feeling in Ahmedabad?

It is a hot day at Ahmedabad. However, there are chances of rain making an appearance in the evening. If it does, that could delay the start of the match but it's not expected to truncate or wash the game out. 

If the game does get washed out, we do have a reserve day. Find out all about who wins IPL 2023 if rain washes out the game here.

A full house at the Narendra Modi stadium?

The IPL 2023 final will be played in an absolutely fantastic setting. The Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad has a capacity of around 110,000 and the Titans and Super Kings will fight it out for the ultimate honour in front of a record crowd in what is a magnificent stadium.
