Chennai Super Kings:

Chennai Super Kings are eager to kick off their title defense campaign at home in Chepauk, a venue where they have historically maintained an edge. Led by MS Dhoni, possibly for the final time, Chennai aims to initiate the season with a victory, capitalizing on the spin-friendly conditions.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Faf du Plessis, will face their former franchise in the season opener. However, they face an uphill battle, given their unfavorable record against Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk. Their last victory at this venue dates back to the inaugural season in 2008.

Chennai is expected to experience extremely hot weather during this time of the year, with temperatures in the mid-30s and high humidity levels of up to 75%. Such conditions may pose challenges for the players, but no rain is forecasted for the game.

Pitch Report: M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk

The pitch at Chepauk is anticipated to be sluggish, favoring spinners, particularly in the latter part of the game. Historically, teams batting first have enjoyed a slight advantage, with the pitch becoming more difficult for run-scoring in the second innings.
