Chepauk has hosted 83 IPL matches, and the team batting first has won 48, more than 60 percent of the matches. 

The temperatures will be around 33 degrees in the evening. There is no chance of rain in the evening and the humidity is expected to be close to 76 percent. It means due will play a huge role in the second inning.

Team News

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH failed to qualify for the final in their first attempt as they lost to KKR. Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma's opening pair has been one of the most lethal duos of the tournament but both failed to contribute with runs against Kolkata. Travis Head got out for a duck once again. Both the openers will try to make a comeback and provide a good start to their side.

It will be interesting to see what SRH does with Markram. Nitish Kumar Reddy hasn't been poor with his batting so far but he did disappoint in the Qualifier 1. Shahbaz Ahmed and Abdul Samad couldn't do any magic too. It was Rahul Tripathi who was fighting alone and he will be there on Friday too.

Heinrich Klaasen has played some match-winning innings this season and played a good inning against KKR too. SRH have been part of many high-scoring games so the bowling is worrying the fans. They are scoring but are conceding runs at the same time. All the bowlers were pretty bad against KKR.

The positive is that Bhuvi has been bowling some extraordinary spells in the last few matches. Natarajan is scalping wickets in almost every game and Cummins knows how to handle his bowlers that's why they have won some thrilling contests this season. But, if they want to qualify for the final, a complete team performance will be required, but the players' forms are not at the same level as before.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals beat Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator to keep their hopes alive for the Final. Jos Buttler has returned to England so Yashasvi Jaiswal will open the inning with Tom Kohler-Cadmore. He has no IPL experience as Tom has played only two games in the tournament including the Eliminator. Jaiswal is in poor form but he played a 45-run inning against RCb which was an important one.

Sanju Samson has been the most crucial player for Rajasthan in the top order, scoring 521 runs in 14 innings but he has faced difficulties in the last few games. Riyan Parag is set to bat at no 4 and has been brilliant for the side. He has scored 567 runs for RR in 14 innings which speaks volumes. Dhruv Jurel has played some crucial cameos here and there but hasn't been consistent. Rovman Powell played an important role in Rajasthan's victory against RCB in the Eliminator so he will bat as a lower-middle-order batsman.

Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma are expected to feature as the leading pace bowlers with Avesh Khan bowling the death overs. Avesh has bowled some critical overs and scalped 16 wickets so far, but his economy is concerning. Sandeep Sharma isn't in a good form which has caused problems to the team in the last few matches. Boult delivered a stupendous spell against Bangalore and knows how to step up in an important game.

Yuzvendra Chahal disappointed the team with another poor spell. His struggle is visible as the ex-Bangalore spinner has failed to deliver consistently this season. Ashwin can cause problems in Chepauk's pitch although scalping wickets has been the most challenging part for the ex-CSK spinner this season.
