Following 70 exciting matches, and nearly two months of compelling cricketing action, we now know which four teams will be competing for the IPL 2023 title, in the upcoming playoffs stage.
Gujarat Titans, who had already booked first place, further established dominance with a six-wicket triumph over Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday, 21 May.
Whilst the result did not have any implications on Gujarat's position in the points table, the repercussions were gigantic elsewhere, as Mumbai Indians booked a place in the playoffs at Bangalore's expense.
Rohit Sharma's men, who got the better of Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last league-stage encounter, will be taking on Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator clash.
However, before that, the two most consistent teams of the season, Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings will square off in the Qualifier 1. Both matches will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, before the action switches base to Ahmedabad for the Qualifier 2 and the final clash.
