MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk, Chennai) will host this IPL 2021 match between SRH and KKR.

After Mumbai Indians scored 159/9 (20 overs), RCB chased down the 160 runs target on the final ball after losing eight wickets. In that game, the batsmen were struggling to hit the balls strongly while the bowlers also controlled the game cleverly.
Though this venue had the first innings average of around 144 in the IPL 2019, more previously, batsmen and spinners enjoyed this T20 venue.
