CSK V/S MI, Match 49 – IPL 2023:
During the month of May, Chennai encounters scorching temperatures. However, on Saturday, 06 May 2023, Chennai will experience an early morning temperature of 35°C with a wind speed of 13km/h and no chance of rain. Moreover, the night temperature on the same day will be 29°C with a wind speed of 16km/h.
To begin with, the pitch at MA Chidambaram Stadium is generally slow and low, which makes it difficult for batsmen to score runs quickly. However, the pitch tends to offer more assistance to spinners as the match progresses, making it a favorable condition for teams with quality spinners in their squad.
Moreover, in recent years, the pitch has become a bit more batting-friendly, with teams being able to post scores in excess of 170 runs in T20 matches. However, the pitch still offers something for the bowlers, especially in the second innings, which makes it an even contest between the bat and the ball.
