After the Rajasthan Royals ended their five-match winning streak in IPL 2020, Kings XI Punjab will aim to bolster their playoff chances when they meet the Chennai Super Kings in their last league match of the season.
CSK are already out of the competition, but they have spoiled the party for the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last two matches. It is noteworthy that the 3-time IPL winners bested the Mohali-based franchise by ten wickets when they crossed paths earlier in IPL 2020.
KXIP will be under immense pressure in this contest because a loss to CSK will virtually end their campaign. Over the last 13 years, the two franchises have participated in some close encounters, and here's a look at their head-to-head stats before their final meeting in IPL 2020.
