CSK vs SRH MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report

CSK vs SRH IPL 2024: If you are asked how brutal T20 Cricket can be, just show them the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s scorecard. They have been ruthless this season and have shown absolutely no mercy to the bowlers. CSK have a clash against them in a crucial stage of the IPL 2024 and that must have haunted Ruturaj Gaikwad at least once.

Chennai Super Kings are currently sitting at 6th rank in the points table with 8 points in 4 matches. They need at least 5 wins in the remaining 6 of their matches and the path is not going to be easy for them. They have to face Punjab Kings, who chased the 261, RR who are just unbeatable this season, and SRH today.

First talking about SRH, they have scored three 250+ scores batting first and also possess the record of highest IPL score with 287 against RCB. They are just beasts when asked to bat first but in their reverse fixture, RCB got a way to restrict them under 171 and that was spin.

It has been theorized that this spin may be one way. Additionally, Travis Head’s record of four dismissals in six innings against spin lends validity to that hypothesis, yet they still have some strong spin-hitting alternatives otherwise.

Don’t be surprised if you see too much spin early in the powerplay by CSK. In Chennai thus far this season, pace has been significantly more influential than spin and has sustained a general pattern in Chennai. But at MA Chidambaram Stadium, we could witness a dry and slower wicket this time.

Usually associated with slower, drier pitches, Chennai chose a different approach this year. This time, the ground could be drier as CSK’s head coach urged his team to play to their advantage. But there was a lot of dew settling during the last game at the location, which made spinners obsolete.

The average first innings score at this venue in T20 is somewhere around 165 and the highest successful chase has been of 211 runs. Out of 88 matches, 47 have been won by teams batting first and that will be the mantra for this match as well.
