Chennai Super Kings (CSK) continue their ongoing IPL 2024 (Indian Premier League) campaign by taking on Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in match 22 at the renowned MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, on Monday, April 8. It is worth noting that the current campaign has been a roller coaster ride for CSK. 

Having played four games in the tournament so far, Chennai have recorded wins in two matches and have lost the remaining two. The side will be taking on Kolkata Knight Riders after losing their previous clash to Sunrisers Hyderabad, and the Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side will hope for an improved performance. 

On the other hand, under the leadership of Shreyas Iyer, KKR are on an unbeaten streak in the IPL 2024. With three wins in as many matches, the two-time champions will aim to continue their showings. The side has been putting in all-round performances so far, and they will hope to replicate their form in Chennai and maintain their unbeaten run. 

MA Chidambaram Stadium Pitch Report and Conditions

The surface at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai grips quite a lot. Often considered as a paradise for spinners, a low-scoring encounter can be on the cards in Chennai. Stroke playing will be expected to get harder in the second innings, and the side winning the toss should opt to bat first.
