CSK vs RCB: Pitch Report

The M. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is one of the smallest grounds in India and has proven to be a spinners’ haven. The pitch showcase is a history of minimal bounce however the batsmen can look to score boundaries in the powerplay. The team fielding first gets an added advantage as the batting conditions improve towards the second innings, however, the toss-winning captain might opt to bat first considering the humid climate. The average score on this pitch lies around 165.
