Pitch & Conditions:
The pitch at the MA Chidambaram Stadium will favor batters as it is hard & dry, and as the game progresses the pitch will favor both sides but bowlers will have to maintain line & lengths better to target & hit the stumps. The toss-winning team should decide to bat first.
Both teams are high on confidence & strategy as CSK has won 6 matches out of 11 and currently holds the second position in the team standings. They also emerged victorious against MI. Delhi Capitals have won the last 5 matches and were able to chase the score of 182 in just 16.4 overs in their last match against RCB.
Both the teams are evenly matched & winning probability will depend a lot on the strategy they follow.
The pitch & the conditions at MA Chidambaram will make it safer for the teams to chase rather than create a score first. So the toss-winning team might choose to bowl first & decide to chase the score.
