Chennai wicket is helpful for spinners. The captain would like to bat first after winning the toss in the final

New Delhi. Kolkata Knight Riders led by Shreyas Iyer and Sunrisers Hyderabad led by Pat Cummins are facing each other in the final of IPL. Both the teams are gearing up for this great match to be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday (26 May). KKR team entered the title match by winning the first qualifier, while Hyderabad defeated Rajasthan in the second qualifier and booked a ticket to the final. The role of the pitch is going to be important in this match. Let us know whether the pitch is going to be helpful for the batsmen or the bowlers.

The pitch of MA Chidambaram Stadium is traditionally helpful for bowlers, especially spinners. It is going to be difficult for the batsmen on this spin friendly wicket. If the batsman has to play a big innings here, he has to get set first. This means that he has to spend as much time as possible on the crease. Once set, the batsman can play a long innings. Bowlers have always dominated this pitch. After winning the toss here, the captain would like to decide to bat first. 8 matches have been played here this season where the team chasing the target has been victorious in 5 matches. The role of the pitch will also be important in the KKR vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (KKR vs SRH) final.
