The Men in Blue have played two ODI World Cup games in Chennai, while Australia have surprisingly played more - three to be precise. The Aussies are on a winning streak at the venue and would be hoping to keep the run going. Meanwhile, India had mixed results in the two games with a win and a loss. The Chepauk will host its first game in the ongoing tournament. Here is all you need to know about the venue of the India vs Australia game.

MA Chidambaram Stadium pitch report

The MA Chidambaram Stadium is well known for its spin-friendly conditions. As seen in the IPL games, the ball does not come nicely onto the bat. The pitch which is set to be used for the game will be dry and black soil. But there is something at Chepauk for batters with strong spin-playing techniques. The first innings score in the last eight ODIs at the venue has ranged from 227 to 299.
