The Chepauk pitch has always been helpful for the bowlers, and there is certainly no doubt about that. However, that reputation is slightly tarnished, as runs are also hidden within the surface. Taking the example of the last game, where CSK showcased their batting skills and posted more than 200 runs. Batting in the first inning should be the number one goal for both teams, as batting second might get tricky.

The pitch usually starts favoring bowlers in the second innings due to dryness. But as mentioned, bowlers can take advantage of the pitch only in the second innings. So, batting first and posting runs is not going to be a bad option. Also, black soil is mainly used at Chepauk when preparing a pitch. Which means if black soil is used, the pitch offers slow and low bounce and gradually becoming more helpful for spinners.

Speaking about their position on the points table. While CSK is enjoying the third spot in the IPL standings with 5 wins and 4 losses in 9 games. PBKS is struggling, currently at the 8th position with 3 wins and desperately looking to move up the table.
