Toss & Pitch Report
The MA Chidambaram Stadium’s pitch is getting slower, making the toss more important. It is better to bat first because the surface gets harder later. However, the Gujarat Titans have the ability to bowl first and defend any total because to their potent bowling assault. On this pitch, a total of about 170 runs would be respectable.
The Chepauk pitch provides good support for strokeplay throughout the entire game for the batsmen. However, the pitch degrades throughout the game, making scoring challenging. On this grassless pitch, spinners flourish while pacers have little support. It is anticipated that the pitch behavior for this match would be similar to that of previous games, emphasizing the value of spinners and necessitating that batsmen modify their strategy as the game progresses.
