Rain delayed the toss for the final IPL playoff between defending champions Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians in Ahmedabad on Friday.

The world's biggest cricket stadium remained covered after a heavy spell of rain even after it stopped, leaving puddles of water on the ground and dark clouds still hovering.

In the case of a washout, the team higher in the standings -- table-toppers Gujarat -- would move into the final to face Chennai Super Kings, who won the first playoff.

Five-time winners Mumbai hammered Lucknow Super Giants in a knockout match on Wednesday to book their meeting with Gujarat, who lost the opening playoff to Chennai.

The final is scheduled at the same venue on Sunday.
