It is no longer the batting paradise of last year. The wicket has slowed down considerably and is assisting the spin bowlers. Cutters and slower balls would be the go-to deliveries for the pacers. A score of 150-160 should be a winning total on this wicket.
If SRH bats first: 140-150
If CSK bats first: 150-160
