CSK vs GT Live: Rain Postpones Final to Monday

Most important update of the night – Match has been called off. The final will now take place on Monday (28 May).

Albeit rain did reduce significantly, groundstaff needed at least an hour with no rain for a five-overs-per-side game to take place. With the cut-off for that being only an hour away, the umpires have decided to call the game off.

Considering we have a reserve day, this perhaps is the right call, with the shortened game not doing justice to the final's hype. Fortunately, weather forecast shows there are only 10% chances of precipitation tomorrow, as opposed to today's 70%.

We will see you again tomorrow. Same time (our coverage will start by 5pm), same place. See ya!

More timings to note down!

Rod Tucker and Nitin Menon, the two umpires for the final, have been talking with the broadcasters. According to them, rain has to completely stop by 11pm for the minimised version of the game, that is, five overs per side.

This is decided in accordance with the groundstaff, who have quoted a sixty-minute preparation time after the stoppage of rain, to get the ground ready.
