While the Chepauk was a haven for spinner, the Kotla is expected to be batting-friendly which will mean that Dhoni will have to choose if he wants to go in with the extra spinner or whether he wants to beef up the batting order. <p></p> <p></p>With both teams beginning with wins under the belt, which one will gain the early momentum at the Kotla? An exciting contest awaits!
