MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report: Rajasthan Royals are set to clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2024 Qualifier 2 at the iconic MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday. Both teams have taken different journeys through the tournament, but now they face off in a critical match to determine who will advance to the IPL 2024 Finals against Kolkata Knight Riders. As we approach the SRH vs RR Qualifier 2, let’s explore how the Chepauk pitch might influence the game.

This season, the MA Chidambaram surface has provided opportunities for both batters and bowlers. The average first innings score has hovered around 164, while teams batting second have typically scored about 151. This year, the stadium has seen a mix of high-scoring and low-scoring matches, with several games featuring totals over 200 and a few low-scoring encounters as well.

SRH vs RR Pitch Report:

The pitch is expected to favour bowlers, especially spinners. Known for its spin-friendly characteristics, the surface offers significant grip and turn. As the match progresses, spinners tend to get more assistance, making life challenging for stroke players.

This can hinder batters’ ability to play their shots with precision. The spin and grip on the pitch are likely to limit scoring opportunities, potentially making this a bowler-dominated game. Regarding the ground dimensions, the straight boundaries measure around 70 meters, while the square boundaries are about 67 meters.

Considering the spin-friendly surface and external factors, the side that wins the toss will likely opt to bat second at the MA Chidambaram Cricket Stadium.
