CSK vs MI Match: MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report

The MA Chidambaram Stadium is renowned for its firm and arid surface that generally favors spinners. Nonetheless, this season has seen an emphasis on stroke-making as the pitch has limited grass coverage, benefiting the batters.

Nevertheless, conditions may vary during afternoon games. The slower bowlers could gain some leverage from the pitch during the afternoon, causing frustration for the batters as the ball won’t come on to the bat as effortlessly.

Is MA Chidambaram batting or bowling pitch?

This year the surface at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai hasn’t been on the slower side, instead we have seen runs being scored heavily. Last match played at this venue was an afternoon game between CSK and PBKS where more than 400 runs were scored. A competitive total on this surface would typically range somewhere above 185, which could prove to be a challenging target as the pitch slows down during afternoon games. Therefore, the team winning the toss is better off opting to bat first to avoid batting on a surface that becomes sluggish afterwards.
