The final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will take place on May 30 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and weather concerns have been at the forefront. The IPL final promises to be an action-packed event with some of the world’s best cricketers competing in front of 132,000 fans. However, the weather may just play spoilsport.
Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, India’s largest cricket stadium, is known to have a high percentage of humidity. Humidity levels are expected to be around 70%, which could affect the quality of the crickets on display. High humidity can make the ball difficult to grip, making it harder for pitchers to make slower serves, and it can also reduce spin and seam motion.
The pitch in Ahmedabad used to be slow and low, leading to low-scoring matches. Weather conditions coupled with ground conditions can lead to a slow and low score match, which may not be what fans want to see in a final.
Despite the concerns, the Control Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced that the IPL final will go ahead as planned. BCCI is known to have a backup plan in case it rains and they may have to implement that if the weather becomes an issue.
For fans who can’t make it to the stadium, the IPL 2023 final will be available to stream on DAZN in the UK and Ireland. DAZN is a subscription-based sports streaming service that provides live coverage of various sporting events. Fans can subscribe to DAZN to follow the action from the comfort of their homes.
The IPL final promises to be an epic spectacle, but the weather can be a deciding factor in how the match goes. As fans eagerly await the final game, they will have to keep an eye on the weather forecast to see if it affects the match.
Hopefully fans will get to see an exciting cricket match and the weather won’t detract from their experience. The IPL final is a highly awaited event and fans are eagerly anticipating the clash of titans.
As the players prepared for the final battle, fans waited eagerly, hoping that the weather gods would smile at them and they would witness an epic final.
