MA Chidambaram Stadium PITCH Report
The solid, dry surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium is known for favouring spinners. However, this season has seen a focus on stroke-making due to the pitch’s reduced grass coverage, which is advantageous to the batters. Nevertheless, during afternoon games, circumstances could change. The slower bowlers may be able to use the pitch to their advantage in the afternoon, which may frustrate batters as the ball won’t come on the bat as easily.
The playing surface at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium hasn’t been particularly sluggish this year; rather, runs have been scored often. The last game held here was an afternoon contest between CSK and Punjab Kings, which saw more over 400 runs scored.
On this surface, a good total would be above 185, which might make it difficult to reach during afternoon games when the pitch slows down. Therefore, the team that wins the toss will choose to bat first in order to avoid playing on a surface that slows down later on.
