MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai pitch history and T20 records

MA Chidambaram Stadium will play host to a battle between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad later tonight. It is a rematch of the IPL 2018 Final. SRH and CSK clashed once earlier this season as well. The Orange Army won that game on home turf.

CSK will host SRH tonight with the aim of taking revenge for their previous defeat. Chennai suffered a loss against Lucknow Super Giants in their last game at this venue, but they would still be confident of defeating Hyderabad because of their past record at home.

Before SRH clashes against CSK for the second time in IPL 2024, here’s a quick look at the pitch history of the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
