- April 12, 2023 19:07MS Dhoni after winning the Toss
“We will bowl first. It maybe slightly on the slower side, different from the first game. Dew may play a role and it might get better in the second innings. - On his 200th game as CSK captain -It feels good and also I feel the crowd has been fantastic. Also the fact that we started in the old stadium, it was very hot and humid. But now it feels like we’re playing in Switzerland. It’s good to play. We have seen cricket change - how T20 was played at that point of time till now, a lot has changed. The crowd has been fantastic. We have had injury concerns and players were unavailable, but still we have done well.”
- April 12, 2023 19:05Toss Update
CSK wins toss, opts to bowl first
- April 12, 2023 18:51Pitch Report by Nick Knight
“Lots of cracks, not a lot of grass. The surface is firm enough here but fully expect the spinners and cutters to play a major role in this type of surface. The way the openers approach the game in the powerplay can have an impact on the game. In the middle overs, the spinners will come into play. In the game against LSG, the spinners extracted good turn. It is going to turn and there will be a bit of bounce too. The key will be to bowl in the right lengths, on the 5-6 metres area.”
