The Wicket at MA Chidambaram Stadium has emerged as a balanced surface so far in the IPL 2021. It has got something to offer for both batsmen & the bowlers & toss won’t have a big impact here. The pitch doesn’t offer many turns while the cutters & slower deliveries have worked here. It is quite easy for the batsmen to score runs once they get settled on the pitch.
