CSK vs GT Pitch Report: Dew and spin to be major factors at Chepauk

The Chepauk Stadium has traditionally offered slow surfaces which aids spinners. Will it be any different this time around?

In a replay of the IPL 2023 final, Chennai Super Kings will take on Gujarat Titans at the MA Chidambaram in Chennai on March 26, Tuesday. Both teams are coming to the game on the back of convincing wins at the start of their IPL 2024 campaign. CSK started their campaign with a win against Royal Challengers Bengaluru while Gujarat Titans fended off Mumbai Indians challenge in their season opener.

MA Chidambaram Pitch Report: What to expect in the CSK vs GT match

The MA Chidambaram Stadium saw the IPL 2024 season opener between CSK and RCB. RCB’s score of 173 was easily chased by Ruturaj Gaikwad’s Chennai with 8 balls to spare. The spinners received a lot of help in the match, and that situation is expected to remain the same. Moreover, the dew factor creeps in as the match progresses, making it tougher for bowlers to grip the ball.

Although the dew plays a factor, teams winning the toss prefer to bat first in the ground. The average first innings total is around 163 in the ground, although teams batting first enjoy a higher win percentage in the ground. Toss might play a major factor particularly in this match, with GT possessing spinners such as Rashid Khan and Sai Kishore in their ranks.

Taking all the factors into consideration, teams winning the toss might opt to bowl first specially because of the dew factor.
