After an embarrassing to Mumbai Indians in their last IPL 2020 match, Chennai Super Kings' campaign has almost ended for this year. Although they still have a mathematical chance of qualifying for the playoffs, it is highly unlikely that the MS Dhoni-led outfit would secure a spot in the top 4.
The Super Kings will aim to end their campaign on a high by doing well in the last few matches, and play Royal Challengers Bangalore in their12th match of IPL 2020. The Bangalore-based franchise have almost sealed a playoff berth, with 14 points from ten games. A win in their next fixture should be enough for RCB to progress to the next round.
The Virat Kohli-led franchise would be quite confident heading into this fixture as they had earlier beaten the Chennai Super Kings by 37 run. Here's a look at the pitch report and weather conditions for this afternoon game in Dubai.
