KKR vs SRH pitch report

Chepauk's reputation precedes it with its typically sluggish pitch, favouring spinners and slower bowlers. Despite this, high-scoring encounters are a rarity at this venue. In the recent Chennai match (Qualifier 2), SRH's spin duo, Shahbaz Ahmed and Abhishek Sharma, caused havoc in the Rajasthan Royals' middle order, claiming 5 out of 7 wickets.

Under slightly overcast skies, the game is scheduled on pitch #4, positioned centrally among all pitches. This red soil wicket, previously contested by CSK and PBKS, sees Markram honing his bowling skills, possibly to counter KKR's left-handers.

With 63m and 70m dimensions for square boundaries and a 77m straight boundary, this red soil pitch promises bounce and sets the stage for a high-scoring affair. Historical data suggests scores ranging from 175 to 190 in previous finals at this venue.

While spin may not dominate, the significant bounce will challenge batters who may resort to unconventional shots, particularly horizontal bat strokes, against spinners.

In the pitch report, Ian Bishop and Matthew Hayden reassure viewers that dew won't be a factor, heightening anticipation for an enthralling match ahead.

KKR vs SRH Prediction

According to Google's win probability, Shreyas Iyer and his team hold a 53% chance of defeating Pat Cummins' side in the final.
