The pitch at Chepauk, known for its batting-friendly nature, offers substantial support to batsmen throughout the game. However, as the match progresses, the surface tends to deteriorate in terms of hardness. With minimal grass covering, the pitch becomes particularly conducive to spinners, while pacers find limited assistance. It is anticipated that this upcoming encounter will witness a similar behavior from the pitch, providing an intriguing playing field for both teams.
