It’s time for the last weekend of doubleheaders, where Kings XI Punjab will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings in Mohali. The hosts will play for pride as they failed to make it into the playoffs while the defending champions have to get these two points to remain at the top of the ladder. Both the teams will come face-to-face for the second time in the battle of the 'Kings'. Chennai Super Kings emerged victorious by 22 runs last time both these sides met.

Kings XI Punjab have had a forgettable season this time around in the IPL inspite of some sensational performances. With five wins in their thirteen outings, the hosts are languishing at the bottom of the points table. KL Rahul has been in tremendous touch scoring 522 runs this season. After another poor campaign after all the anticipation, Kings XI Punjab will be hoping to end this tournament on a high.

On the contrary, Chennai Super Kings has been the most consistent franchise again this season. Having won nine and lost four times in their thirteen league fixtures, the reigning champions are leading the league table with 18 points. CSK went to the top of the pile with an emphatic victory over the Delhi Capitals in their previous encounter. Dhoni and Co will be eyeing to register another win and secure the top spot.
