The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
6th Game of the current Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will witness Royal Challengers Bangalore play against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 14th Wednesday.
Although a challenging wicket summons at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, the bowlers are likely to rule the stay. In the two IPL 2021 matches played in Chennai so far, the ball has riveted off the pitch.
There was minimal swing on offer for the speedsters, with the hard lengths being crucial in Chennai. Batters will look to make complete usage of the powerplay overs, during which run making should be comparatively easy. Wickets in hand will be important as both sides will preferably want to bowl upon winning the toss. 165-175 should be the usual, with dew anticipated to play a part in the second innings.
Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in the playoffs of the last edition. SRH’s 2016 IPL victory also came at the cost of RCB, whom they beat in the final. While the Sunrisers seem to keep the advantage, Bangalore should establish a trickle in what ensures an exhilarating IPL 2021 battle.
In fact, the bookkeepers also rate the RCB at better odds of 1.76, while the Sunrisers Hyderabad trail at the odds of 2.00. This indeed is based on the results of their inaugural games. RCB might perhaps be poised to enter this game, but SRH is known to bounce back. Also, keeping in mind dew as a significant factor, the toss will be crucial. Thus, we reckon, waiting till the toss will be wise.
