The final match of IPL season 16 will now be played on the booking day i.e. May 29 due to rain. This match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Gujarat Titans (GT) was to be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. It was raining a lot here since the afternoon. Because of this, when the rain did not stop until the deadline, the match officials now decided to hold the match on May 29. Faced with such a situation, an important notice was also issued to the spectators who came to watch the game at the stadium.
Spectators have been asked to keep their physical tickets safe at the big screen at Ahmedabad Stadium. So when I arrive at the stadium tomorrow, that is, on May 29 to watch the game, I can enter through this entrance. This can also be considered as very important news for the fans because many fans had come to watch the game even because it was Sunday. In such a situation, you will now have to keep the same ticket safe to return to the stadium the next day.
To inform that the tickets for the final match of the IPL are completely sold out. In this match, the players, including the fans, also waited a long time for the match to start. But around 11 o’clock, the referees and match officials discussed and decided to hold the match on the reserve day.
