Chennai Super Kings host Kings XI Punjab at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.
Chennai Super Kings have nothing to lose in this game, while Kings XI Punjab go in with playoffs hopes.
Chennai have been poor for a major part of IPL 2020 but after their ruling out for the contention of the trophy, they have notched up consecutive victories.
While Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, are still in contention but after losing to Rajasthan Royals on Friday night, their hopes have taken a massive hit. They have to win this and hope other results also go their way.
In their previous clash this season, CSK beat KXIP by ten wickets, with Shane Watson starring with the bat. It will be interesting to see if KXIP would take a revenge here at Abu Dhabi.
