Ahmedabad to host the grade finale on May 28 as we look at the complete official schedule download for the Playoffs of IPL 2023.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday, April 21 announced the official schedule for the Playoffs of IPL 2023. As expected, the Playoffs begin a day after the end of group stage matches on May 23 with the IPL 2023 final set to be played on May 28. 

To recap, the BCCI before the start of the tournament had only announced the schedule for the Group stage matches owing to venue choices. But now BCCI has finalized Ahmedabad and Chennai as the venues for the Playoffs. While Qualifier 1 and Eliminator will be played in Chennai, Qualifier 2 and Final shall be played in Ahmedabad. 

While Qualifier 1 and Eliminator shall happen on back-to-back days, the BCCI has kept a gap of one day for Qualifier 2 and Final. Hence, May 23 and May 24 shall be days for Qualifier 1 and Eliminator. Whereas May 26 and May 28 shall be the days for Qualifier 2 and the Grand finale. 

Given the venues of the IPL 2023 Playoffs, Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings shall benefit the most. It would be advantage Chennai Super Kings for the Qualifier 1 and Eliminator. Whereas it would be advantage Gujarat Titans if they manage to play Qualifier 2 and the Grand finale.
