Chennai’s pitches are oddly two-paced and there will be no proper run-flow in the first innings. At the same time, it gets much better in the second innings. These kinds of unpredictable and odd-paced pitches can’t be used for a celebrated finale as such.

The pitches in Mumbai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad have a far more competitive nature as compared to the ones in Chennai. This is where Chennai is seriously lacking with its red-soil pitches that offer slow games.

While these pitches in Chennai might provide a low-scoring thriller once in a while, they are not worthy to host the finals which have a lot riding on them. If last night’s one-sided affair is a yardstick, it must be seen that Chennai doesn’t get any such high-profile games in the future.
