Chennai dominated on slow wicket
If we look at the batting and bowling attack of Chennai Super Kings, then they dominate on slow wickets. If the pitch is fast and has bounce then Chennai can struggle. Because they do not have express fast bowlers according to that situation. The ball gets stuck on slow pitches and bowlers like Pathirana become dangerous in such situations. Chennai have finger spinners and they also become lethal on slow pitches.
