Pitch Report

The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai is known for its spin-friendly conditions. A slow track is definitely on the cards, so the batters will have to play it cool and go for steady knocks. Opting to bowl first would be a wise move. It’s going to be fascinating to see how the teams handle the spin challenge.

Toss Prediction

In the last 10 ODI records indicate that 6 matches were won by batting first and 4 by bowling first. However, in this World Cup, we’ve seen teams mostly opting to field first. In the previous game Ind vs Aus at the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, India did have a bad start while chasing 200, but they eventually reached the target comfortably. The team winning the toss might think to bowl first to restrict the opposing team to a low score. This way, they can chase down the target easily and comfortably. It’s all about strategic planning and taking advantage of the conditions.
