After a fantastic response in the one-off Test, Chennai's M. A. Chidambaram Stadium will continue to host the multi-format series between India and South Africa.

The Women in Blue have had a perfect series thus far, beginning with three back-to-back wins in the ODIs, followed by a 10-wicket victory in the Test. Now they will have a three-match T20I series, and all three matches will take place here, in Chennai.

Before the T20I series begins, let's take a look at how the pitches in Chepauk have behaved in the past, and what could be expected in the first match of this format.

MA Chidambaram Stadium Chennai Pitch Report

Lately, Chidambaram pitches are no longer the same as it was used to slow and low in the past. Spinners, as they used to dominate earlier, are still impactful, but batters too have their say if they keep their say.

The dryness of the surface will be there, and slow spinners can have some assistance here. However, given the fact that the match will be played during the evening in Chennai, the 'Dew' factor holds the key, more than anything else.

All in all, as we saw how nonchalantly Indian batters played here in the Test, expect another run-fest between the two heavily mismatched sides.
