We try to keep it simple as a spin group, one guy having a good day is enough. Hopefully, this is easy to chase. The wicket is a tiny bit slower, hasn’t changed a lot from the previous game and wasn’t spinning a lot. We need to still play well because they have a good bowling attack. (On whether he’s expected to bat) I actually don’t know when to get my pads on, depends on the impact player and the right-hand left-hand combination. No dew at all today.

TOSS: MS Dhoni wins toss, Chennai opts to bowl first
Dhoni: We’ll bowl first. This pitch is 50-50 because it is slightly cloudy. There might be dew so always better to chase. All packed together on the points table, we need to do well and not look at the table at this moment. Combination-wise, we have been fortunate because we haven’t had all players available. The headaches start later when everyone becomes available.

- April 21, 2023 18:44Pitch Report
Pommie Mbangwa: There was a bit of drizzle earlier, but we should have a full match. One square boundary is short at 62m, the other is 70m. The straight boundary is at 75m and some large pockets as well. This is pitch number 6 and there were a lot of runs in the last game that was played on this (CSK-LSG with 444 aggregate runs). There are a few cracks, but it is rock-hard. As a pacer, you need variations to succeed on this pitch, same goes for the spinners. But in one sentence, the batters should have a field day today,

- April 21, 2023 17:14CSK vs SRH Match preview
It is tempting to glaze over a little whenever anyone starts to talk about M. S Dhoni and how much longer he will sport the CSK yellow on the field. And Super Kings’ home games — against the familiar tableau of a sea of yellow, the chants of ‘Dhoni! Dhoni! Dhoni!’, and a sports goods store ‘Dhoni Sports’, across the street from the Chepauk Stadium on the Wallajah Road corner — only make it more desirable to watch ‘Thala’.
So once again, with a full-strength crowd lusting for the host’s victory, CSK will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in an IPL 2023 match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium on Friday.
CSK comes into this match on the back of a high-scoring game, including an IPL record-equalling 33 sixes, where it beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight runs. Meanwhile, SRH lost to Mumbai Indians by 14 runs at home.
The Sunrisers have conceded more than 10 an over in the death overs this year, and their bowlers will be up against a CSK side with a scoring rate of 12 in the same phase. CSK has four left-handers in its top seven, which means PowerPlay specialist off-spinner Washington Sundar will be a key bowler for SRH.
If it is a turning pitch with low bounce, it could also pose a significant challenge for SRH sensation Harry Brook. The Englishman has a strike-rate north of 160 against pacers, but it dips drastically to a shade over 100 against spinners.
Meanwhile, Brook’s England teammate Ben Stokes batted and bowled in the CSK practice sessions. If available, it will be interesting to see whose place Stokes takes.
Ravindra Jadeja has had an underwhelming IPL with the bat, scoring 39 in four innings at 125.80. Dhoni, on the other hand, has 59 in four innings but at a strike rate of 210.71. There’s a case here for Dhoni batting ahead of Jadeja, especially towards the death overs.- Ayan Acharya
