The pitch, according to Matthew Hayden and Simon Doull, will be ideal for batting. But that was before the rain started.
“It’s 66m away to the leg-side, 66 away to the off-side. Some big pockets, 73, 72, and 74, and downtown it is 74 as well. I believe it is a bat first condition in finals, there might be a few overhead conditions that might change the mind of the captains at the toss. Again it’s that rolled grass through the conditions. There is not a lot of turn here, but maybe, through the middle, these world class spinners who get a little grip as well. Bat first, if you really do, you gotta go really big, so I am saying it is probably a 180-190 par score. This surface hasn’t been really quite as good as no. 7, this is the no. 6, it hasn’t produced quite the numbers, but if you bat first, bat well, do the job right, and you might be good enough,” Doull and Hayden said.
Rain, however, is unlikely to have a significant impact on the match due to the excellent drainage system. However, there may be a little more grip than usual. However, it will not be ideal for wrist spinners. The outfield’s wetness will be difficult for wrist spinners to deal with.
CSK will be the more confident team, having recently defeated the Titans. The Yellow Army, on the other hand, will be tired of both their recent poor record in Ahmedabad and their overall record against the reigning champions.
