Toss will play an important role in the first match. According to previous editions of TNPL, the chase has been the best option at the Chennai venue. 70% of the time bowling first team ends up on the winning side. 

Pitch Report: The match will be held on Indian Cement Company Ground, the pitch here is flat. In other words, the pitch is better for batting with no pace and bounces on the wicket.
