Rain has played spoilsport in only one game during the league stage this season when the clash between LSG and CSK in Lucknow on May 3 got washed out due to rain and the two teams shared points.

So which team will move to the IPL final if the second Qualifier between GT and MI gets washed out due to rain? Let’s find out.

What happens if the IPL Qualifier is rained off?

In case of Qualifiers (where there is no reserve day), in the event that it is not possible to schedule a 5-over match to complete by the end of the extra time on the original day, the teams will, if conditions permit, play a Super Over to determine the winner of the relevant Eliminator or Qualifier match. This means that the pitch and ground must be ready for play so that the Super Over can start at the latest by 12.50 am.

Who will win if GT vs MI is rained off?

If even the Super Over cannot be played due to weather conditions, then the team who finished highest between the two sides during the league stage will go ahead to the Final. Should such a situation occur, GT will proceed to meet CSK in this year’s Final, over MI.
