The pitch is on the slower side at the Chepauk, with the spinners starting to dictate proceedings in the TNPL. Although there is some swing on offer for the pacers, the batters will look to target them early on in the innings. As the match progresses, the pitch will slow down, making it difficult for the batsmen to play their shots freely. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 150 being par at the venue.
