After crushing the Royal Challengers Bangalore by eight wickets in their previous IPL 2020 game, the Chennai Super Kings will battle the Kolkata Knight Riders in their penultimate fixture of the season.
The tournament has entered its business end now. While none of the franchises have cemented their spots in the IPL 2020 playoffs, the Super Kings are the only team with no chance of qualifying for the next round.
MS Dhoni and co. will look to spoil the Kolkata Knight Riders' party in their upcoming fixture.
KKR have been very inconsistent in IPL 2020 so far. They have played 12 matches, registering six wins and six losses. The Kolkata-based franchise had defeated the Delhi Capitals on Saturday, but lost to the Kings XI Punjab on Monday night in Sharjah.
CSK and KKR share five IPL titles between them, and their last meeting of IPL 2020 should be a cracker of a contest. Here's a look at the pitch report and weather conditions for this match.
